Richmond Area Business Snagajob Named No. 1 Small Company to Work For in America
Governor Bob McDonnell joined managers and employees at Henrico-based Snagajob, a leading provider of hourly workforce solutions, to celebrate the company being named the No. 1 small company to work for in America on the Great Place to Work annual ranking released today.
Snagajob has been named a Top-10 Best Small Company to Work for in America for the past three years before earning the top ranking this year.
â€œSnagajob is a prime example of how an entrepreneur with a vision and a dedication to building a company and supporting employees can live out the American dream,â€ said Governor McDonnell. â€œIn a little more than a decade, this company has become a leader in its field, and is now a nationally recognized ambassador for the Virginia story of business and job creation success. Snagajob has also become a major area employer, doubling its number of local employees to more than 300 this year, with more growth on the horizon. That kind of expansion not only helps Virginiaâ€™s economy but will further the growth of other companies â€“ both within Virginia and nationwide â€“ as Snagajob helps other businesses with their hiring needs for hourly employees.â€
Snagajob was selected among hundreds of small companies (50-250 employees) competing for the best place to work honor from the Great Place to Work Institute. The award is based on employee surveys, an in-depth questionnaire and factors such as credibility, respect, fairness, pride and camaraderie.
â€œThe foundation of what we look for in â€˜Snaggersâ€™ â€“ our employees â€“ is great people who love doing great work together as a team,â€ said Shawn Boyer, co-founder and CEO of Snagajob.Â â€œIâ€™m incredibly proud of this honor especially because itâ€™s based on employee feedback. This award is further validation that our maniacal focus on people and culture is the right approach, particularly as we grow at a rapid pace and have doubled our size in the past year.â€
