The challenge of being named one of Seattle Business Magazine’s “100 Best Companies to Work For” was made only more difficult in 2018 by a record number of companies participating. After tallying over 77,000 responses from Washington state employees, Seattle Business Magazine recently announced that Affirma Consulting was named a best large size company to work for!
Breaking down the survey, a company of our size (large: 150+ employees) is required to have over a 50% participation rating and the responses are completely anonymous and aggregated. This difficult achievement truly represents Affirma’s commitment to satisfaction on both client and employee sides. One employee response was profiled in the magazine:
“We promote from within. I have seen the part-time office administrator become the HR director, I have seen an accountant transition into project management, and I have seen a support analyst become director of our SharePoint managed services department…”
The public announcement took place on June 28, 2018 at the Washington State Convention Center to an audience of over 1,200 people from the list of companies. Michael Romoser, associate publisher of Seattle Business magazine had the following to say in the press announcement:
“This is the 29th year of producing our state’s 100 Best Companies to Work For program. The vast number of companies that participate in the in-depth, direct-to-employee survey process never make the list. For the ones that do, it is a remarkable achievement and testament to their fostering inclusive, engaged work environments.”
This award, however, is nothing new for Affirma. Dating as far back as 2012, Affirma has consistently won workplace awards between Seattle Business Magazine and the similarly-awarded Puget Sound Business Journal’s “Washington’s Best Workplaces.” Are you interested in joining a best place to work?
