Boston, MA – March 9, 2023 – Global research and advisory firm Staffing Industry Analysts (SIA) announced winners of the 2023 Best Staffing Firms to Work For yesterday during its Executive Forum North America conference. JOHNLEONARD was recognized as a winner in the staffing firms with 21 to 50 employees category.

“We are thrilled to be named by SIA as one of the best staffing firms to work for in 2023 for the 2nd year in a row,” said Derek McKinley, President of JOHNLEONARD. “Being recognized by our employees for this prestigious award is a huge honor and a testament to the fun, collaborative, inclusive, and engaging culture we have successfully built over the 50+ years.”

A record 450 firms sought participation in the 2023 program, conducted by SIA in conjunction with Quantum Workplace. Each staffing firm’s internal employees were asked to complete an online survey that measured key engagement categories such as teamwork, trust in senior leaders, diversity and inclusion, manager effectiveness, compensation and benefits. Key findings from the survey results are covered in SIA’s industry research.

“Being recognized on industry lists for your work as a company is always an honor. But that honor is even higher when your own workers’ ratings place you on those lists. That is the case for SIA’s Best Staffing Firms to Work For, where employees and temps provide the data for our rankings,” said Barry Asin, president of SIA. “We cannot be happier for the 2023 honorees and the great company cultures they have created, and we are excited to help elevate the industry by highlighting best practices in employee engagement and retention.”
