SAN JOSE, Calif. (PRWEB) June 30, 2015

RiseSmart, the leading provider of contemporary career transition services, was recognized for the second year in a row by the San Jose Mercury News as one of the “Top Workplaces in the Bay Area.” Competing against leading Bay-Area companies of a similar size, RiseSmart ranked 14 out of 50 and moved up in the rankings, having placed 21 out of 25 the previous year.

The winners of each category are determined based solely on the results of an employee feedback survey administrated by Workplace Dynamics, LLC, a leading research firm that specializes in organizational health and workplace improvement. The aspects of the workplace culture that were measured are alignment, execution and connection.

“Since RiseSmart serves human resource professionals, we know that success starts with treating your employees right and taking care of them,” said Sanjay Sathe, RiseSmart president and CEO. “To once again be named one of the Top Places to Work for is a great recognition for RiseSmart. It is rewarding to know that our employees enjoy the work they do in helping people get back to work faster.”

In the Workplace Dynamics survey, more than 72 percent of employees stated that “this job has met or exceeded the expectations I had when I started.” Throughout the survey employees agreed that new ideas are encouraged at RiseSmart and that senior managers have an understanding of what is happening within the company.

“Time and time again, our research has proven that what’s most important to them is a strong belief in where the organization is headed, how it’s going to get there, and the feeling that everyone is in it together,” said Doug Claffey, CEO of Workplace Dynamics. “Without this sense of connection, an organization doesn’t have a shot at being named a Top Workplace.”
