Vaco Celebrates 14th Consecutive Year as One of the Best Places to Work in Los Angeles

LOS ANGELES, August 16, 2022 – Vaco, a global talent solutions firm, is delighted to announce that it has placed #11 on the Best Places to Work in Los Angeles list by the Los Angeles Business Journal and Workforce Research Group. This will mark Vaco’s 14th consecutive appearance on the list, with four years at a number one spot.

“As an organization that prides itself on its relationship-driven approach both internally and externally, ranking on the Best Place to Work in Los Angeles list is the highest honor,” said Joslyn Osborn, co-managing partner of Vaco in Los Angeles.

Rankings were revealed at the Los Angeles Business Journal’s special event on August 11, 2022, and were published in the August 15, 2022 issue. The list of Best Places to Work is made up of 100 companies in small, medium and large employer categories, representing excellence in workplace culture, leadership and benefits.

“The Best Places to Work program is very competitive, and we greatly value the 20% of the score that comes from an evaluation of our company’s benefits, policies, practices and demographics,” said Stephen Smith, co-managing partner of Vaco in Los Angeles. “But the aspect that means the very most is that 80% of the score is based upon an employee survey measuring our teammates’ personal experiences. It’s a humbling reality to uncover.”

Osborn added, “At Vaco, we believe passionately in the importance of hiring diverse individuals who are a culture-add to create a dynamic, growing and self-actualizing workforce. People are rewarded not just by compensation, but also by responsibility, respect and contributing to a positive place to work.”

The Los Angeles Business Journal and Workforce Research Group created this sixteenth annual program and survey to identify, recognize and honor the best employers in Los Angeles, benefiting the county’s economy, workforce and businesses.
