National Association for Business Resources Names the Best and Brightest Companies to Work For in the Country
For the first time in its history, the National Association for Business Resources has named the "Best and Brightest Companies To Work For™" in the country. And Jakob Marketing Partners, located in Holladay, was among the winners. Not only was JMP the only Utah company selected for the Best and Brightest Award, but it was one of only three businesses on the entire west coast to be recognized for this honor.
Led by CEO Julie Jakob, JMP gained top honors from the national organization after being evaluated on several key measures including Communication, Community Initiatives, Compensation and Benefits, Diversity and Multiculturalism, Employee Education and Development, Employee Engagement and Commitment, Recognition and Retention, Recruitment and Selection, Small Business and Work-Life Balance.
"Our employees are our most valuable asset," Jakob said. "They go out of their way, every day, to not only meet customer expectations but to exceed them. I’m fortunate to have a team of true professionals who take pride in what they do, yet have fun at the same time."
With more than 10 years of experience conducting Best and Brightest Company competitions, the NABR have identified numerous best HR practices and provided benchmarking for companies that continue to be leaders in employment standards.
"Nationally recognized award recipients keep innovative human resource initiatives at the forefront of their company culture and make it a priority to consider their workforce as an essential aspect in their company success. Our association is proud to recognize and honor these winning companies for this fine achievement," said Jennifer Kluge, NABR president.
The companies that have been selected to be recognized nationally as a Best and Brightest Company to Work For™ were featured in January’s online edition of Corp! Magazine. The winning companies will also receive additional recognition as a national winner at a Best and Brightest Companies to Work For™ awards symposium and gala at a location of their choosing in several U.S. cities.
