Outplacement firm receives coveted recognition for second year in a row, ranking #35 in the Bay Area for company culture

SAN JOSE, Calif., March 1, 2019 — RiseSmart®, a Randstad company, and one of the world’s largest outplacement providers, announced today that it has been named as one of the 2019 Best Workplaces in the Bay Area.

The ranking is based on surveys from more than 30,000 employees at companies across the San Francisco Bay Area. Great Place to Work, a global people analytics and consulting firm, evaluated more than 60 elements of workplace culture, including the extent to which employees trust leaders, the respect with which people are treated, the fairness of workplace decisions, and how much camaraderie there is among the team. Out of 70 companies, RiseSmart ranked #35 on the list, adding to the company’s ranking of #15 Best Small and Medium Workplaces in the U.S. by Great Place to Work and FORTUNE in 2017.

“Many companies in the Bay Area struggle to balance the intense pressure for results and innovation while also creating a workplace where employees feel valued,” said RiseSmart President Dan Davenport. “We know that having a great work environment is critical to our long-term success. That’s why we’ve developed a culture built on values and purpose. This recognition shows we are on the right track and that our employees feel appreciated and connected.”

RiseSmart’s anonymous employee satisfaction survey results were exceptional, showing an 89 percent employee satisfaction rate.

“Employers in the Bay Area face a competitive labor market as well as an incredible diversity of local and international talent attracted to its opportunities,” said Michael Bush, CEO of Great Place to Work. “Organizations like RiseSmart stand out from the crowd, intentionally growing their businesses by creating great places to work for all, driving their innovation and success through their people.”
