SilkRoad Honored as One of the Best Medium-Sized Companies to Work for in 2014, a Glassdoor Employees' Choice Award

CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwired - Dec 12, 2013) - SilkRoad, a leading global provider of cloud-based talent management solutions, has been honored as one of the Best Medium-Sized Companies to Work For in 2014, a Glassdoor Employees' Choice Award. The Employees' Choice Awards rely solely on the input of employees, who elect to provide feedback on their jobs, work environments and companies via Glassdoor's anonymous online company review survey.

"As a company that champions employee interests around the globe, we are honored to be recognized by our own employees as a top company to work for," said John Shackleton, President and Chief Executive Officer of SilkRoad. "Today's business leaders have both the responsibility and the tools to recruit, develop and reward top talent. Like our customers, we put the interests of our employees first."

"Glassdoor is working to create greater workplace transparency and is committed to helping people find jobs they love," said Glassdoor CEO & Co-founder Robert Hohman. "Through the Employees' Choice Awards, we aim to highlight those employers that excel in keeping employees satisfied and engaged."

The Glassdoor company review survey includes both quantitative and qualitative questions designed to capture a genuine and authentic inside look at what it's like to work at particular jobs and companies. The survey asks employees to rate their satisfaction with the company overall, and key workplace factors like career opportunities, compensation and benefits, work/life balance and senior management, as well as culture and values. In addition, employees are asked to describe the best reasons to work at their company as well as any downsides.

The Best Medium-Sized Companies to Work for List is determined using company reviews shared by U.S. based employees who elected to participate in the survey between November 14, 2012 and November 12, 2013. To be considered for the list, a company must have between 250-999 employees and have received at least 20 approved company reviews during the window of eligibility. The final list is compiled based on Glassdoor's proprietary algorithm, and takes into account quantity, quality, and consistency of reviews.
