Dallas, TX – February 6, 2023 – ShiftKey, a leading technology company transforming the future of work by empowering independent licensed professionals to connect directly with healthcare communities with open workforce needs, has been named a 2023 Top Workplace, USA.
This award issued by Energage, a purpose-driven organization that develops solutions to build and brand Top Workplaces, is solely based on feedback from a distributed employee engagement survey. ShiftKey was one of more than 42,000 organizations that were invited to participate in the Top Workplaces Survey. The positive feedback from ShiftKey employees was calculated based on comparisons to research findings and 15 ‘Culture Drivers’ proven to predict high performance against industry benchmarks.
Since ShiftKey was founded in 2016, the company has grown from 25 to more than 300 employees in the United States. ShiftKey also has a growing international team presence with nearly 80 team members in Poland. ShiftKey’s team of motivated, creative individuals have connected more than 10,000 healthcare communities with hundreds of thousands of licensed professionals across the country to fill open workforce needs and empower independent licensed professionals to work on their own terms.
“From the beginning, a non-negotiable for me in starting my own company was creating a place where we give people the opportunity to succeed in an environment where they are excited to show up to work every day.” says Tom Ellis, founder & CEO, ShiftKey. “As a business owner, this award is particularly meaningful because it’s a reflection of direct, honest feedback from ShiftKey team members.”
“We celebrate and champion one another always, and we support each other in challenging moments,” says Karen Clark, chief human resources officer, ShiftKey. “We have a team that genuinely believes in the impact we can have on the future of technology and work, truly empowering people to live their lives on their own terms—and that passion and energy for the vision really drives our culture.”
This recognition follows a series of rapid, strategic growth announcements for the company, including a funding round sponsored by majority investor Lorient Capital and four additions to the ShiftKey executive leadership team. ShiftKey was also recently named the No. 1 fastest-growing privately held company in Dallas and recognized as a regional finalist for the EY Entrepreneur of the Year awards.
