RICHMOND, Va. - September 18, 2014 – Snagajob, America’s largest hourly employment marketplace for job seekers and employers, today announced it was named by Great Place to Work® as one of the best small workplaces in the United States on their annual 2014 Best Small & Medium Workplaces list, published today in FORTUNE magazine.
This is the seventh consecutive year Snagajob has received this honor, which has recognized companies with exceptional workplace cultures for the past 11 years.
"Snagajob is very fortunate to have so many collaborative, respective and passionate employees contributing to its outstanding culture," said Snagajob CEO Peter Harrison. "This recent recognition is a testament to these unique employees and a great sense of pride for our company."
Competing against hundreds of companies across the country, Snagajob participated in a rigorous selection process, which included an employee survey and an in-depth questionnaire about benefits, programs and company practices. Great Place to Work® evaluates each application using its unique methodology based on five dimensions of a great workplace: credibility, respect, fairness, pride and camaraderie.
Just a few of the Snagajob initiatives that focus on people and culture are:
An office that fosters culture: Snagajob’s headquarters in Innsbrook was designed with the express purpose of supporting the company’s culture. The elimination of offices and introduction of low-walled workspaces encourages collaboration; the town center complete with a pub, big-screen TV and ping pong table helps build camaraderie; and the two-story slide reminds Snaggers to play hard while working hard.
Culture squad: This is the cross-departmental team of Snaggers of all levels ensuring that Snagajob maintains a positive, energizing and fun work environment that reinforces shared values and brings out the best in every Snagger. Its self-directed responsibilities also include planning events that have become company traditions such as the annual Chili Cook-Off, office golf tournament, Halloween costume contest and Office Olympics.
Benefits, too: Some of the more unique company benefits include an annual paid day off to volunteer, paternity leave, back-up childcare, gym membership reimbursements, a "comfortably casual" dress code and all-expense-paid trips to resorts with posh accommodations for five- and 10-year Snagger-versaries.
"The work of these companies is quite impressive," said China Gorman, CEO of Great Place to Work®. "They provide an example that others can look to, to see what kind of outstanding workplace is possible—regardless of size, industry, or other circumstances."
