Akraya is thrilled to announce that we have been named as a “Best Staffing Firm to Temp For” winner for 2020. The Best Staffing Firm to Temp For awards are given annually by Staffing Industry Analysts (SIA), the global advisor on staffing and workforce solutions, and recognize employers for their top performance in engaging their employees and creating a workplace conducive to talent development, enjoyment, collaboration, and productivity.
The winners represent companies who scored in the top quartile in each of the award categories. The categories comprise North American firms with 10 to 20 internal employees, firms with 21 to 50 internal employees, firms with 51 to 200 employees, firms with 201-500 employees, and firms with over 501 employees.
Akraya has long stood out in the staffing industry for earning numerous awards for its workplace culture, support for our consultants, and recruiting performance within numerous staffing programs.
"I couldn’t be prouder of the Akraya team,” said CEO Amar Panchal. “We strive every day to make sure our consultants are supported in a way that allows them to be productive and successful in their jobs. And this award, which reflects the voice of our consultants, really demonstrates the amazing job the Akraya staff is doing.”
“With their strong commitment to employee engagement and building a high-performance culture, Akraya is setting the bar high,” said Barry Asin, SIA President. “Congratulations on this important recognition.”
Over 250 firms sought participation in the program this year, which was conducted by SIA in conjunction with Quantum Workplace, an Omaha, NE-based company. Contract employees at each firm were asked to complete an online survey that measured key engagement categories, focusing on items including teamwork, trust in senior leaders, feeling valued, manager effectiveness, compensation and benefits. In order to gather statistically sound results, participating companies must have reached a minimum level of employee participation, based on their total number of employees. Companies were ranked in each category according to their overall score. Winners were chosen based entirely on the survey results.
