Kforce again certified as a Great Place To Work

The solutions firm greatly outperformed the average American workplace in satisfaction and engagement, based on employee feedback.

TAMPA, FL (February 2024) — Kforce is once again proud to be Certified™ by Great Place to Work® for the firm’s outstanding employee experience. This designation marks Kforce as one of the best companies to work for in the country.

The prestigious award is determined by survey results from current employees. Kforce performed particularly well in areas of flexibility, culture and work-life balance. Overall, 89% of employees said that Kforce is a great place to work, far surpassing the average response rate of 57% of employees at a typical U.S.-based company.

“This Great Place to Work certification recognizes our dedication to building a people-first culture where each associate is empowered to succeed,” Kforce President and CEO Joe Liberatore said. “Our world-class employees and culture are what set us apart and help our clients and candidates achieve their goals.”

Great Place To Work® is the global authority on employee experience. The program identifies and celebrates the leadership behaviors proven to deliver market-leading revenue, employee retention and increased innovation. It is also the only official recognition earned by the real-time feedback of employees on their company culture.

"Great Place To Work Certification is a highly coveted achievement that requires consistent and intentional dedication to the overall employee experience," said Sarah Lewis-Kulin, the Vice President of Global Recognition at Great Place To Work. “By successfully earning this recognition, it is evident that Kforce stands out as one of the top companies to work for, providing a great workplace environment for its employees."

Kforce launched its technology-enabled hybrid work model, called office occasional, in 2022. The company continues to make key investments in its people. This past year, Kforce expanded its leadership development training, launched an evolved company internet to strengthen communication, invested in additional technology and engagement tools, and supported seven employee-led affinity groups that foster a diverse, inclusive workplace.

As a result, employees ranked the firm high in areas such as respect, credibility, pride and camaraderie, according to survey results. For example, Kforce surpassed the average score of the Top 100 certified companies in 2023 for statements such as, “People are encouraged to balance their work life and their personal life” and “Management makes its expectations clear.”

According to Great Place To Work research, job seekers are 4.5 times more likely to find a great boss at a Certified great workplace. Additionally, employees at Certified workplaces are 93% more likely to look forward to coming to work, and are twice as likely to be paid fairly, earn a fair share of the company’s profits and have a fair chance at promotion.
