Sonoma, California, June 30, 2011 – In the first employee-based survey of Bay Area companies, Workplace Dynamics named Nelson one of the Top Work Places in the Bay Area.
Workplace Dynamics, an independent company specializing in employee engagement and retention, used employee surveys to rank 10 large, 20 midsize, and 35 small companies. Rankings were calculated on company leadership, compensation and training, diversity/inclusion, career development, family-friendly flexibility, and values and ethics.
Survey results were released via the Bay Area News Group, which includes the San Jose Mercury News, Contra Costa Times, Oakland Tribune, and the San Mateo County Times. Results are also online at www.mercurynews.com.
“Business is good throughout the Bay Area, and especially so in the Silicon Valley,” states Craig Nelson, Executive VP. “In a highly competitive market, clients rely on us for the best recruiting and retention strategies. This award confirms we’re using our own recommended best practices, thereby creating a workplace that attracts and keeps the best talent. It’s a list we’re particularly pleased to make.”
Mac Tully, Publisher of the Bay Area News Group said, “Despite the challenges of the economy, the Bay Area continues to set the standard for progressive companies such as Nelson, which provide positive, enriching work experiences for their employees.”
“We are very proud to have been recognized as one of the top work places in the Bay Area,” says founder and owner, Gary D. Nelson. “Putting people to work is what it’s all about and in this economy, it is especially important that jobs be filled quickly. Having strong talent readily available allows businesses to compete globally from their California-based locations.”
The largest independent staffing firm in Northern California with 40 years of experience, Nelson attributes its success as an employer to the values embraced by the company. Integrity, Innovation, Excellence, and Empathy are principles that Nelson’s owners and employees alike hold dear. Preserving honesty, embracing creativity, producing excellent products and services, and fostering quality relationships is the recipe for this company’s successful work place.
