SAN FRANCISCO – March 12, 2020, 8:00 AM PDT – SmartRecruiters, the Hiring Success company, announced today that it has been recognized by Forbes as one of America’s Best Startup Employers.

The company entered 2020 with a 60% year-over-year growth in revenue and an increasing growth in the employees globally. To keep a global workforce engaged, SmartRecruiters has launched a number of valued employee and manager initiatives; from engagement programs to learning and development programs. For example, one of the most recent ones is called the Globe Trotters program. It is a way for selected employees from each office to experience one of the seven SmartRecruiters offices for a month, paid for entirely by the company.

“Investing in employee programs is one of the top priorities for SmartRecruiters. Shiny HR metrics and big budget programs are great but it’s our teams and our leaders who are at the heart of what makes our workplace amazing,” says Sarah Wilson, Head of People. “Our Smartians (ie: our employees) are incredible and they work tirelessly to make our company successful. Our company motto is ‘You are who you hire’ and we truly believe we are who we hire. We are really proud to be recognized by Forbes.”

Forbes selected America’s Best Startup Employers based on three criteria:

  • Employee Satisfaction: based on average length of employment, employee ratings, and quantity of ratings
  • Employer Reputation: extracted from news sites, micro-blogs, blogs, and social networks
  • Company Growth: measured through website traffic, job openings, headcount, and funding information
