TEKsystems®, a leading provider of IT staffing solutions, IT talent management expertise and IT services, today announced it has earned recognition as one of the 50 Best Workplaces for Recent College Graduates. TEKsystems earned the 14th position for its hiring initiatives, development opportunities, and sense of purpose and meaning as reported by recent college graduates surveyed by workplace culture experts Great Place to Work.
TEKsystems maintains an active presence on college campuses across the country and their 10-week summer internship program offers students the same training, real life, and hands-on expertise all new employees receive. Nearly half of all new TEKsystems employees in 2016 are May graduates who accepted offers prior to their graduation.
“We always put our people first, and that includes mentoring and developing the best talent we can find. New college graduates bring with them fresh perspectives, a desire to innovate, and a willingness to learn that adds value immediately to our culture.” said Allison Maltese, Senior Manager of Talent Acquisition for TEKsystems. “They’re essential to building great teams. Last year over 60% of nearly 1,400 new hires were recent graduates, and we’re on track to increase that number this year.”
Earlier this year, TEKsystems garnered recognition as one of Fortune’s 2016 100 Best Companies to Work for and as one of Inavero’s Best of Staffing Talent Award winners for the second consecutive year.
The 50 Best Workplaces for Recent College Graduates is part of a series of rankings by Great Place to Work® and Fortune based entirely on employee surveys from published Great Place to Work® reviews. Past lists have included Technology, Retail, Financial Services, Advertising and Manufacturing.
