SHRM Ranks Top 50 Small- and Medium-Size Employers

The Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) and the Great Place to Work Institute, Inc. (GPTWI) announced on June 29 the nation's top 25 small and top 25 medium-sized companies to work for in America. The winners and their rankings were revealed in New Orleans at SHRM's 61st Annual Conference and Exposition, the largest gathering of HR professionals in the world.

Taking the top spot in each category this year are two Wisconsin-based companies: Badger Mining Corporation in the small category, and for a second year in a row, Ultimate Software in the medium-sized. The annual rankings of the "50 Best Small and Medium Companies to Work for in America" are conducted by GPTWI, and are the most comprehensive and authoritative ratings of employee satisfaction and workplace culture. This is the sixth year SHRM and GPTWI have collaborated on the list.

"Top companies know how critically important it is to have a culture that empowers and motivates employees, particularly in this tough economy," said SHRM President and CEO Laurence O'Neil. "Knowing how to align and engage your employees is an essential part of keeping productivity high and your organization open for business. That's why these winners deserve our applause, now more than ever."

"Companies who are part of the process learn a lot about themselves and a whole community has developed over the years," said Dr. Michael Burchell, GPTWI's Vice President of Global Business Development. "The more an organization can leverage the talent of its people and tap into the potential of its culture, the more successful and efficient it will be."

The 50 winners range in size from 50 to 999 workers, with "small" companies employing 50-250 and "medium" companies employing 251-999 workers. This year, more than 550 companies participated in the selection process, which includes a 57-question survey sent to each organization's workforce and a separate questionnaire for management. GPTWI also reviews annual reports, employee handbooks and other materials. Employee-survey responses counted for two-thirds of each company's score. The remaining one-third came from GPTWI's evaluation of the company in five areas: credibility, respect, fairness, pride and camaraderie.
