Awards Honor Most Engaged Workplaces

San Francisco and Toronto — Jan. 14

Cloud software company Achievers announced its 50 Most Engaged Workplaces in the United States and Canada for 2013. This annual award recognizes top employers that display leadership and innovation in engaging employees, making their workplaces more productive. The awards honor the top 50 companies in the U.S. and the top 50 companies in Canada.

“The companies we honor as the Achievers 50 Most Engaged Workplaces have made employee engagement, alignment and recognition a very high priority because they understand how critical it is and what a competitive advantage it provides,” said Achievers CEO Patrick D. Quirk. “These companies serve as role models for other businesses by creating an engagement strategy that cultivates a high-performing workplace.”

The judges evaluated each applicant based on eight elements of employee engagement: communication; leadership; culture; rewards and recognition; professional and personal growth; accountability and performance; vision and values; and corporate social responsibility.

The panel of 14 judges included academics and thought leaders on employee engagement and included representation from organizations such as the Society for Human Resource Management, Human Resources Professionals Association, Human Capital Institute and the Northern California HR Association.

Recipients will be honored at award galas on March 6 in Toronto and April 2 in San Francisco.
