June 6, 2017 — Kforce, an award-winning professional staffing services firm, announced today that their Baltimore office has been named “one of the best small businesses to work for” by the Baltimore Business Journal.
The award recognizes workplaces where employees willingly go above and beyond in their work, advocate for the organization, and intend to stay into the future. The 2017 rankings are based on employee survey results obtained through the Business Journal’s Best Places to Work partner Quantum Workplace.
Led by Director Joy Casey and Senior Manager Matt Merchant, Kforce’s Baltimore office is supported by 35 employees and an 80 percent retention rate. Kforce employees gave top marks to the organization’s level of engagement, professional development, satisfaction and culture.
“Having a positive culture is everything,” said Casey. “Not only is this a fun place to work, but our success is rooted in the belief and embodiment of our core values of respect, integrity, trust, stewardship and community and commitment and fun.”
For Casey and Merchant, the ability to attract top millennial talent includes a focus on a healthy work-life balance, collaboration and a mission-driven purpose to support clients.
“We believe that great people equals great results,” said Merchant. “This is not just something that applies to how we do business, but it is the foundation in which we operate and it is what leads to our success internally.”
The award was open to companies with a workforce located in Baltimore City or Anne Arundel, Baltimore, Carroll, Harford or Howard counties. Both full-time and part-time employees were included in the survey.
