ATLANTA (June 13, 2023) — For the sixth year in a row, Sparq has been named one of the Best and Brightest Companies to Work for in the Nation. 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. This award recognizes companies that deliver exceptional human resource practices.
Sparq is committed to developing a culture where its diverse, talented workforce can thrive. In 2022, the proportion of BIPOC (Black, Indigenous and People of Color) colleagues increased by 53.5% and women colleagues by 38.7%.
“Our colleagues are the backbone of the company and show incredible dedication to our clients,” said Robin Stenzel, Chief People Officer at Sparq. “Cultivating a welcoming, collaborative space where their opinions are valued is of the utmost importance. Our colleagues’ success is pivotal to our success as an organization.”
The national winning companies were assessed by an independent research firm which reviewed a number of key measures relative to other nationally recognized winners. With over 20 years of experience conducting the Best and Brightest competitions, the National Association for Business Resources (NABR) have identified numerous best Human Resource practices and provided benchmarking for companies that continue to be leaders in employment standards.
“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.
