TAMPA, FL (January 2023) — 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 based entirely on what current employees say about their experience working at Kforce.
With high scores in flexibility, culture and work-life balance, 92% of employees said in the survey that Kforce is a great place to work. This far surpasses the average response rate of 57% of employees at a typical U.S.-based company.
“This Great Place to Work certification highlights our core values at Kforce of excellence, unity, compassion and fun,” Kforce President and CEO Joe Liberatore said. “We owe our continued success to the exceptional performance of our dedicated employees, our winning strategy and world-class culture.”
Great Place to Work® is the global authority on workplace culture and leadership behaviors proven to deliver market-leading revenue, employee retention and increased innovation.
“Great Place to Work Certification™ isn’t something that comes easily – it takes ongoing dedication to the employee experience,” said Sarah Lewis-Kulin, vice president of global recognition at Great Place to Work.
Kforce operated remotely starting in March 2020 before transitioning to a technology-enabled hybrid work model, called office occasional, in 2022 and opening a new technology-enabled headquarters in Midtown Tampa in November 2022.
The company made key investments in its people this past year, including offering all employees an extra week of time off between Christmas and New Year’s. Kforce also extended its remote work policy to include international travel to more than 50 countries where employees can choose to work for up to three weeks at a time. The firm also expanded its associate-led affinity groups that recognize heritage, culture, ethnicity, orientation and identity.
Great Place to Work research shows that employees who work at certified companies like Kforce see a host of benefits. Job seekers are 4.5 times more likely to find a great boss at a certified great workplace. These employees are also 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.
