Jobot has been named to Inc. magazine’s annual list of the Best Workplaces for 2020. Inc. judges thousands of private companies in America, reviewing how they created exceptional workplaces through vibrant cultures, deep employee engagement and stellar benefits.
“Building a great corporate culture comes only from strong leadership,” says Inc. Magazine Editor-in-Chief Scott Omelianuk. “The companies on Inc.’s Best Workplaces list are setting an example that the whole country can learn from, especially now, when company culture is more important to the workforce than ever.”
“Our Jobot culture is at the heart of what we do. Creating a great culture is both fun and rewarding.” says Heidi Golledge, Founder and CEO of Jobot.
“We are honored and grateful to be recognized by Inc. Magazine. Our culture allows us to continue to focus on helping thousands of people find meaningful work,” says Golledge.
Jobot has offices in Los Angeles, Boston, San Francisco and their headquarters in Irvine, California. The company leads the way in recruiting and staffing; with a focus on experienced and kind recruiters who are backed by JAX™ – Jobot’s proprietary AI recruiting platform that utilizes AI to make better matches so the recruiters can focus on building relationships.
“Our culture is stronger than ever. Even in light of recent social distancing, we quickly transitioned to work from home, with our leadership taking a different approach to creating a rewarding culture. Jobot launched Zoom Trivia Nights, free lunches for top performers delivered to recruiter’s homes on a daily basis, and even our own socially distant Jobot Prize Patrol. For five days straight, I delivered quarterly bonuses to engineering, recruiting and operations folks throughout Southern California. The Jobot culture is vibrant whether we are on Zoom or at the office,” says Golledge.
Founder and CEO Heidi Golledge is a leading entrepreneur and expert in recruiting and staffing and has been recognized by Staffing Industry Analysts, Forbes, and leading business publications for the creation of Jobot, CareerBliss and CyberCoders, which she sold to ASGN in 2013 for approximately $100 million. Golledge won the EY Entrepreneur of the Year award for both her companies CyberCoders and CareerBliss.
How Inc. Magazine Evaluates Workplace Culture:
Each nominated company took part in an employee survey, conducted by Quantum Workplace, on topics including trust, management effectiveness, perks, and confidence in the future. Inc. gathered, analyzed, and audited the data. Then we ranked all the employers using a composite score of survey results. This year, 73.5 percent of surveyed employees were engaged by their work.
The strongest engagement scores came from companies that prioritize the most human elements of work. These companies are leading the way in employee recognition, performance management, and diversity. It is a different playbook from a decade ago, when too many firms used the same template: free food, open work environments, and artifacts of “fun.”
While researching the finalists, Inc. and Quantum saw distinct themes:
- 100 percent provide health insurance.
- 50 percent allow employees to bring pets to work.
- 62 percent take employees to offsite retreats to relax and recharge.
- 20 percent offer paid sabbaticals to reward length of service.
“A lot of people ask me what makes Jobot so unique?” says Golledge.
“The answer is that we back everything we do with kindness and fun. We are not just a place to come to work, we are a family,” says Golledge.
The Jobot platform blends proprietary AI technology and experienced recruiting pros to create the first of its kind job matching engine. This unique blend of technology and recruiting skills make recruiting top talent and building a positive work culture possible for every company.
