DENVER — CH2M was recognized as one of the world’s most attractive employers to potential candidates on LinkedIn’s Global 100 InDemand list for the second consecutive year. The announcement occurred on-stage at Talent Connect in Las Vegas on Wednesday, October 16.
“We’re honored to once again rank as an in-demand employer because not only do we strive to recruit the best talent; we also commit to cultivating the career paths of current and future employees through networking and professional development on outlets such as LinkedIn,” said John Madia, CH2M HILL Chief Human Resources Officer. “It’s always great to see that our efforts are being recognized by potential job candidates because it helps validate our employee value proposition. Of course, it’s vital for CH2M HILL to develop and foster a rich, diverse talent pipeline, as our employees are the engine in delighting our customers on complex projects around the world.”
A directory of the strongest Talent Brands in the world, the Global 100 InDemand ranking is a list of the world’s most sought-after employers, chosen based on billions of interactions from LinkedIn’s 240 million+ members. CH2M HILL achieved the rank of #62. This is the company’s second consecutive recognition, having also made the list in 2012.
“Great teams build great products and services. That’s why a company’s talent is its greatest strength. But hiring top talent isn’t easy,” said Dan Shapero, vice president of LinkedIn Talent Solutions and Insights. “That’s why talent brand is so important — the stronger the talent brand, the easier it is to hire and retain the best and brightest. This year’s most InDemand employers realize that and have worked hard to strengthen their talent brands and build their dream teams, increasing their chances of success."
