The “Best Staffing Firms to Work For” program comprises nine categories based on company size and location — five in North America, two in the UK and two in Ireland. The North America categories range from smallest size of 10 to 20 internal employees to a category for 501-plus internal employees; the two categories in the UK and Ireland are 10 to 50 internal employees and 51-plus employees.

In addition, the “Best Staffing Firms to Temp For” contest (for external workers) comprises one category.

There is one grand prize winner per category; all other winners are not ranked.

Internal employees at each participating firm were asked to complete an approximately 40-question online survey that measures six key engagement categories focusing on items including communication and resources, individual needs, manager effectiveness, personal engagement, team dynamics and trust in leadership.

In order to gather statistically sound results, participating companies must have reached a minimum level of employee participation, based on total number of employees. Responses from each question of each completed survey were compiled and evaluated. Companies in each size category were ranked according to their overall composite score. Winners were chosen based entirely on the survey results.

The Best Staffing Firms to Temp For were ranked based on their Net Promoter Score, which was calculated based on temps’ responses to questions such as how likely it is they would recommend this staffing firm to a friend.

This year, 450 staffing firms registered for the Best Staffing Firms to Work For program, which was conducted for Staffing Industry Analysts by Quantum Workplace, an Omaha, Nebraska-based company.
