Published August 23, 2021

Employee feedback earns firm recognition for culture and work-experience

HADDONFIELD, N.J. August 23, 2021 -- True, the fastest-growing global platform of innovative talent management products and services, was recognized on the Philadelphia Inquirer’s 2021 Top Workplaces list for the second year in a row. The award was based on survey submissions from True Platform’s employees in the firm’s Haddonfield, N.J. headquarters.

The survey asked employees to reflect on their feelings about workplace culture, values, leadership, and benefits. 135 companies were recognized across 3 categories based on regional employee count (large, mid-size, and small). True ranked 17th out of the 60 companies in the small-sized category.

True started in 2012 in Haddonfield, N.J. with a handful of motivated people looking to positively disrupt the executive recruiting space with technology-backed solutions. Nine years later, the firm has 500+ employees, five business units, and a global presence with 17 offices in North America, EMEA, and APAC. True partners with high-growth, tech-enabled companies across asset classes to place the leaders of the world’s most transformative companies.

True adds this Best Workplaces honor to other recognition earned this year from Inc. Magazine (Inc. Magazine’s Best Workplaces 2021), Hunt Scanlon (Top 50 Recruiters), and Forbes (America’s Best Professional Recruiting Firms of 2021).
