FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE 

Berkshire Associates Named One of Baltimore Sun’s 2015 Top Workplaces
HR Consulting and Technology Firm Selected as a Top Workplace for the Fourth Consecutive Year  

COLUMBIA, MD–January 8, 2016   Berkshire Associates, a leading human resources consulting and technology firm, announces it has been named one of   The Baltimore Sun’s Top Workplaces for 2015. This award recognizes local companies for their exceptional workplace environments, employee satisfaction, and benefits.

To select the top workplaces, The Baltimore Sun partnered with Workplace Dynamics, conducting surveys with thousands of companies throughout the Baltimore region. “The Top Workplaces award is not a popularity contest. And oftentimes, people assume it’s all about fancy perks and benefits,” says Doug Claffey, CEO of WorkplaceDynamics. “But to be a Top Workplace, organizations must meet our strict standards for organizational health. And who better to ask about work life than the people who live the culture every day—the employees.”

During the survey, Berkshire employees were asked several questions about the company and its benefits. One employee stated, “The work is varied, interesting, and challenging. My manager is helpful and always available for questions. Employees work hard here and are very client-focused. Fellow co-workers are supportive.”

“Employee satisfaction is a vital factor in achieving customer satisfaction and true business success,” says Beth Ronnenburg, SPHR, SHRM-SCP, President of Berkshire Associates. “A workplace culture that encourages engagement, fosters creativity, and nurtures innovation provides the environment needed to reach our goals. Berkshire is honored to again be recognized for its efforts.”
