SEATTLE, Wash., Aug. 15, 2012 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — Sales Talent Inc., a sales recruiting firm based in Mercer Island, Wash., was selected as one of Washington State’s “100 Best Companies to Work For” by Seattle Business Magazine. Awards were presented during a cocktail reception and dinner at the Westin Seattle on June 14, hosted by Brock Huard, with a keynote by Seattle Seahawks Head Coach Pete Carroll.

Companies were judged on benefits, communication, corporate culture, hiring and retention, performance standards, responsibility and decision making, rewards and recognition, training and education, and work environment. To be considered for the Best Workplaces list, applicants must submit a formal nomination, participate in an employee satisfaction survey conducted by an independent third-party, and then be selected by a panel of judges from previously recognized workplaces throughout the state.

“Sales Talent is honored to have been selected to Seattle Business Magazine’s 100 Best Companies list in 2012,” said Chris Carlson, President of Sales Talent. “I feel this award is a reflection of the dedication and commitment to excellence that each of our employees exhibits.
