ATLANTA (May 11, 2023) — For nine years running, Sparq has been named one of “Atlanta’s Best and Brightest Companies to Work For.” Formerly operating under the name Rural Sourcing, the company recently rebranded to align with the company’s growth and the evolving role of digital engineering. The award recognizes companies in Atlanta that deliver exceptional human resource practices and an impressive commitment to their colleagues.
Sparq’s focus on building a diverse, talented workforce throughout Middle America has remained steadfast. In 2022, the proportion of BIPOC (Black, Indigenous and People of Color) colleagues increased by 53.5% and women colleagues by 38.7%. Sparq has also received numerous workplace accolades at both a local and national level, including being certified as a Great Place to Work and named on the Atlanta Business Chronicle’s Pacesetter list as one of the 100 fastest-growing companies in Atlanta.
“Creating meaningful tech careers while also cultivating an engaging culture for our colleagues continues to be a top priority,” said Sparq Chief People Officer Robin Stenzel. “Our environment encourages colleagues to bring their whole selves to work, which leads to success for them as individuals and for our clients.”
The winning companies were assessed by an independent research firm, which reviewed several key measures relative to other nationally recognized winners. The categories applicants were scored on include: Compensation, Benefits and Employee Solutions; Creative Wellness and Wellbeing Solutions, Employee Enrichment, Engagement and Retention; Employee Education and Development; Recruitment and Selection; Employee Achievement and Recognition; Communication and Shared Vision; Diversity, Equity and Inclusion; Work-Life Blend; Community Initiatives and Corporate Responsibility; and Leadership, Strategy and Company Performance.
“Those companies that made the list of Best and Brightest Companies to Work For® as well as those companies that continue to make the list are truly remarkable. Given today’s need for talent, retention of talent, and the further issues related to the pandemic, these companies have proven they are superior to market conditions. They are elite thinkers and this honor demonstrates their commitment to excellence,” said Jennifer Kluge, President and CEO of NABR and The Best and Brightest Program.
