Award recognizes companies that prioritize their people 

HADDONFIELD, N.J., May 11, 2022 - True, the fastest-growing global platform of innovative talent management products and services, has been recognized as an Inc. Best Workplace 2022.

The talent management firm was named a top workplace for the third year. In addition to making the general list, True received distinct honors in categories around company revenue, growth stage, and size. Companies were selected by Inc. based on employee surveys and a review of management effectiveness, company benefits, and programs for employee growth.

True stands out for supporting the whole person in the workplace. Frequent performance feedback opportunities encourage professional and personal development. Employee resource groups foster inclusivity in the workplace and ensure that everyone feels welcome. A remote-friendly, camera-on culture paired with safe and beautiful office spaces around the world gives people the flexibility to determine how and where they work.

“We built True on core values of innovation, transparency, collaboration, balance, and altruism, and this award is an annual touchpoint that reminds us we’ve stayed true to what’s important,” said Joe Riggione, True co-founder and co-CEO. “Even after a period of massive growth, we’ve remained consistent in our determination to treat people well. That underpins all of our success,”

True doubled its employee base last year and grew to become North America’s sixth largest firm by revenue in the executive search industry, according to the Hunt Scanlon annual ranking. True registered 132% YOY growth, outpacing the industry’s largest firms and solidifying its “fastest-growing” designation for another year.

In addition to True’s recognition for workplace culture, the firm was also acknowledged this May on the Forbes list of America’s Best Executive Recruiting Firms 2022. The list acknowledges the top 200 executive search firms with rankings determined from surveys and nominations from external recruiters, HR managers, and role candidates.
