“Being named one of the best companies to work for is a unique honor,” said RiseSmart president and CEO Sanjay Sathe. “We are fully committed to serving our clients to 100 percent of our abilities, but this is only achievable with satisfied and engaged employees. Our goal is to constantly create a culture that appreciably benefits our employees. We are steadfast in our devotion to making sure our work family is taken care of in every way possible.”

“Companies that recognize that their employees are the key to their success achieve staying power,” said NABR president Jennifer Kluge. “Our 2014 winners create their human resource standards to ensure employee satisfaction and they set standards for every business to aspire toward. We are proud to honor this year’s winners.”
