San Francisco, CA - Great Place to Work® Institute, Inc. is currently seeking nominees for its 2008 "Best Small & Medium Companies to Work for in America" list, published annually by Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) in HR Magazine. The list, which is compiled based on comprehensive employee and management team surveys, has been recognized as a powerful recruitment tool across industries.

In order to be eligible for the 2008 list, companies must have between 50 and 999 U.S.-based full and part-time employees for the duration of the selection process. To nominate your company, please complete the online registration form, which can be found at The deadline for nominations is August 15, 2007.

Companies that go through the nomination process receive a detailed report on the results of their employee survey, which management teams can then use to identify and understand organizational strengths and opportunities. By seeing how a company’s policies and workplace practices impact their culture, businesses can take steps for improvement that ultimately drive increased employee satisfaction and retention. The report also provides companies with the opportunity to benchmark their company’s workplace practices with those of the nation’s best employers.

"The ‘Best Companies’ list is not only a great marketing and recruitment tool for the companies that rank," says Hal Adler, President of Great Place to Work® Institute. "Every company that applies learns a great deal about their own people -- what employees are happy with and what they aren’t -- and how to increase their productivity and satisfaction. Companies who earn a spot on our list are those that appreciate the needs of their employees as people, and understand how this connects to their business success."

The list is compiled based on employee responses to the "Great Place to Work® Trust Index©," a proprietary survey that measures an employee’s level of trust, pride, and camaraderie within the workplace. Further information used for ranking is provided by the "Great Place to Work® Culture Audit©," a two-part management questionnaire designed to gain a better sense of the overall culture of the organization.

For additional information on the nomination and selection process, in addition to the benefits of applying please register for the complimentary webinar, "Creating a Great Place to Work" on July 26, 2007 at 2:00 pm EST by visiting
