Stamford, Connecticut (September 26, 2016) — At Indeed, we help people get jobs, but we also try to make working at Indeed great. That’s why we’re thrilled to be named the best large business to work at in Southern Connecticut by Hearst Media Services’ 2016 Top Workplaces survey.
For over a decade, Indeed has worked to foster a culture where talented, passionate people come together to help provide the best experience for job seekers, as well assist companies of all sizes find the talent they need. As one of our flagship offices, the Stamford, Connecticut location has been a core part of these efforts, and has become a great place to work because of the great employees that make it run.
“We are thrilled that our employees’ input led us to be named the best large business to work for in Southern Connecticut,” said Paul Wolfe, Indeed SVP and head of human resources. “Our office in the region has been a driving force in fulfilling our mission of helping people around the world get jobs. We hope to continue providing a great work environment and culture for our current and future employees.”
Stamford was one of Indeed’s founding offices along with Austin, Texas, and is now among the global job search engine’s 22 offices worldwide, with over 3,000 employees working to help our over 180 million visitors a month find jobs.
The Top Workplaces lists are based solely on the results of an employee feedback survey administered by WorkplaceDynamics, LLC, a leading research firm that specializes in organizational health and workplace improvement. Several aspects of workplace culture were measured, including Alignment, Execution, and Connection.
“The Top Workplaces award is not a popularity contest. And oftentimes, people assume it’s all about fancy perks and benefits,” said Doug Claffey, CEO of WorkplaceDynamics. “But to be a Top Workplace, organizations must meet our strict standards for organizational health. And who better to ask about work life than the people who live the culture every day—the employees.”
“Time and time again, our research has proven that what’s most important to them is a strong belief in where the organization is headed, how it’s going to get there, and the feeling that everyone is in it together. Without this sense of connection, an organization doesn’t have a shot at being named a Top Workplace.”
