Symplicity, the leading provider of career services management solutions, has announced the winners of its inaugural Best Places to Work for Recent Grads, honoring employers who offer best-fit employment opportunities and benefits for recent college graduates in 2015.
In February, Symplicity invited employers to participate in a survey that collected specific information regarding opportunities for new hires, training programs, benefits and other areas most attractive to new grads. The 2015 awards honor companies who ranked highest in overall score in five different categories: opportunity, culture, benefits, balance and Glassdoor rating.
“Millions of students and alumni are turning to Symplicity each year to find their best match for employment. It is our core mission to help those job seekers find a clear career path and the best-fit employer. This initiative allows us to identify those employers who succeed in providing an outstanding environment for recent college grads,” said Bill Gerety, CEO of Symplicity. “We’re proud to celebrate the 2015 Best Places to Work for Recent Grads winners in earning this recognition.”
The survey gathered employer answers on some of the best reasons to work for their companies, including company culture, perks, annual bonuses and more. Employers were asked specific questions pertaining to benefits, training, culture, values and work-life balance. In order to be eligible for the award, companies must plan to hire at least 12 full-time entry-level employees in 2015. 92 percent of winning employers reported a formal orientation/onboarding, 92 percent offer mentoring, and 80 percent provide continuing education and training to recent grad hires.
