SPR is pleased to announce it was named a Best Place to Work by Built In for the second year in a row. SPR is in the top 100 of the Fully Remote Midsize Best Places to Work list awarded by Built In.
The annual awards program includes companies of all sizes, from startups to those in the enterprise, and honors both remote-first employers as well as companies in large tech markets across the U.S.
“We are honored to be recognized by Built In as a great place to work for the second year in a row,” said Rob Figliulo, CEO, SPR. “This is particularly meaningful to the company this year, as it coincides with our 50th anniversary. We have endeavored to be a great workplace since day one, adapting our culture and ways of working to continue our legacy of attracting, hiring and retaining top talent.”
SPR was placed in the Fully Remote category for the awards, as SPR supports a flexible work environment. “We are constantly evaluating the impact remote work has on SPR’s company culture and producing quality results for clients,” said Figliulo. “So far, it’s actually improved efficiency and timely delivery for clients without compromising on quality software development.”
Built In determines the winners of Best Places to Work based on an algorithm, using company data about compensation, benefits and companywide programming. To reflect the benefits candidates are searching for more frequently on Built In, the program also weighs criteria like remote and flexible work opportunities, programs for DEI and other people-first cultural offerings.
“This award reflects a commitment to ensure our company is a great place to work and that employees see how much they are valued,” says Stacy Fox, Vice President of Talent Operations, SPR.
