For the second consecutive year, EventSphere, a national meetings and events firm based in Atlanta, has been named to the National Association for Business Resources list of “Best and Brightest Companies to Work For.” For 2016, it is one of 101 companies and business entities in the Atlanta region to make the list.
“Since we founded the company, one of our goals has been to maintain a company culture where everybody feels comfortable, “said Todd Lambert, CEO of EventSphere. “Seeing results like this that come directly from the employees reinforces that we’ve been able to do sustain it over the past six and a half years.
NABR contracted with an independent research firm that compared companies in a variety of areas, using both employee questionnaires and reviews of human resources practices in the workplace. According to the NABR, EventSphere ranked significantly above the Southeastern region’s media score with 79 percent or better in seven areas – compensation, benefits and employee solutions; employee enrichment, engagement and retention; employee education and development; recruitment, selection and orientation; communication and shared vision; diversity and inclusion; work-life balance.
“Communication is key in any work environment, and knowing that, based on the survey results, employees feel like they are staying informed and being heard is always rewarding as a company leader,” Lambert says.
With more than 20 years of experience conducting Best and Brightest Company competitions, the National Association for Business Resources (NABR) has identified numerous best practices in human resource 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,” said Jennifer Kluge, NABR president. “Our association is proud to recognize and honor each of these winning companies for their impressive achievements.”
