  • C&A Industries Named Among Best Places to Work in Omaha for Eighth Year

    February 27, 2017
    C&A Industries, Inc., a national leader in staffing and recruitment, has been named among the Best Places to Work in Omaha for the eighth time in ten years. The parent company to workforce solution firms Aureus Group, Aureus Medical Group, AurStaff, Celebrity Staff, and FocusOne Solutions, as well as AurTravel and AurHomes, has been recognized in the large company category of staffing firms with more than 200 employees.

    The annual Best Places to Work initiative, sponsored by the Greater Omaha Chamber of Commerce and Baird Holm, recognizes a select number of companies based on the results of surveys completed by the employees of participating organizations. Surveys measure employee engagement, satisfaction, morale, opportunities for professional growth, and workplace culture.

    “We are proud to be honored once again among a group of highly respected organizations. To be recognized repeatedly for this many years is representative of what’s truly important to us - being a great place to work and career home for our talented team of employees who are the heart and spirit of C&A,” said Scot Thompson, President and CEO of C&A Industries.

    C&A is a leader in nearly every market it serves. Industry-leading training and extensive professional development programs; its award-winning health and wellness program; and community involvement and philanthropy are, according to Thompson, key factors in maintaining C&A’s high levels of employee engagement and morale. He adds that employee recognition programs and focus on communication and idea sharing are also embraced companywide.

    “The level of growth and success that C&A has experienced on a local and national scale would not be possible without our extraordinary group of employees who dedicate themselves to excellence, work collaboratively, and live our mission and values daily. They quite simply are the best of the best and deliver an exceptional level of service that is unmatched,” added Thompson. “Knowing this recognition comes as a result of their employee experience is very meaningful to us.”

    C&A will be honored along with other Best Places to Work in Omaha recipients during a luncheon in May 2018.
