Company Ranked Among Best Places to Work
November 21, 2012
Sheldon Wolitski, founder and CEO of The Select Group, an IT and engineering recruiting firm in Raleigh, has announced that the company has been named among Triangle Business Journal’s Best Places to Work for 2012. This is the third consecutive year the company has been named to the list.
The Select Group was named along with 34 other area businesses based on an employee survey conducted by Quantum Market Research. A certain amount of employees needed to participate in the survey in order for The Select Group to be considered among the best. Companies were selected in four categories – giant, large, medium and small – and The Select Group was named in the medium-sized business category.
Specifically, employees who participated in the Quantum Market Research survey liked the fact that The Select Group fosters a more teamwork-oriented environment in which every employee looks out for each other and that it has more of an entrepreneurial spirit than other companies they have worked for in the past. Employees also like the fact that they are able to set their own career paths and perform functions like helping to grow a new office or get rewarded for hard work.
“The Select Group has a work hard, play hard attitude,” says Keith Murray, a professional technical recruiter. “It’s the little things too, like happy hours, breakfast on Monday mornings and quarter rewards if goals are met.”
“We also have a CEO who truly cares about his employees,” adds Brad Cooper, a senior technical recruiter.
“Keeping our employees satisfied in their jobs is our No. 1 priority,” Wolitski says. “Without their high levels of satisfaction, we would not be able to gain the quality of clients we have and we would not be able to engage in such a high level of success in placing ideal candidates.”
This year’s winners were featured in Triangle Business Journal’s Oct. 5 print edition and were honored during a ceremony Oct. 4.
“These awards are a testimony to the good work done by businesses in the Triangle that recognize employees are a company’s most valuable assets,” said Bryan Hamilton, TBJ’s publisher, when companies were announced earlier this week. “The emphasis on keeping workers happy and productive is clearly evident among these 35 winners.”
