SIA Best Staffing

Synergis named as a Best Staffing Company to Work For



SIA Awards Celebrate Industry Employers


ALPHARETTA, GA (March 10, 2021) Synergis today announced it has been named as a Best Staffing Firm to Work For winner for 2021. The Best Staffing Firm to Work For awards are given annually by Staffing Industry Analysts (SIA), the global advisor on staffing and workforce solutions, and recognize employers for their top performance in engaging their employees and creating a workplace conducive to talent development, enjoyment, collaboration and productivity.


The winners, announced this week during the annual Executive Forum North America, represent companies who scored in the top quartile in each of the Best Staffing Firm award categories. The categories comprise North American firms with 10 to 20 internal employees, firms with 21 to 50 internal employees, firms with 51 to 200 employees, firms with 201-500 employees, and firms with over 501 employees; and Best Staffing Company to Temp/Contract for. The Best Staffing Firms to Work For 2021 awards are sponsored by Sense.


Synergis is an IT and Creative staffing firm headquartered in Alpharetta, GA.  The company’s mission is to be the best place to work in the staffing industry, to be the best for each client and candidate it serves, while leading the way in corporate citizenship.


“Winning this award is such an honor. At Synergis, we strive to be a people-first staffing firm and that doesn’t just mean for our clients and consultants. It’s always been important to me to create an environment where everyone on my team feels valued and has a seat at the table,” said Doug Ross, Founder and CEO.


“Congratulations to all of the Best Staffing Firm winners on this year’s recognition,” said Barry Asin, SIA President. “From communication and community to new ways of engaging their workforces, these organizations stand out in an especially turbulent year for their ability to keep staff and workers motivated, productive and feeling valued, and for their leadership in putting people first.”


Close to 250 firms sought participation in the program this year, which was conducted by SIA in conjunction with Quantum Workplace, an Omaha, NE-based company. Internal employees at each firm were asked to complete an online survey that measured key engagement categories, focusing on items including teamwork, trust in senior leaders, feeling valued, manager effectiveness, compensation and benefits. In order to gather statistically sound results, participating companies must have reached a minimum level of participation. Companies were ranked in each category according to their overall score. Winners were chosen based entirely on the survey results.
