As a mobile-first, web-second tech company, we at TheLadders have always had our finger on the pulse of the latest markets that excel in technology and entrepreneurship. Proudly, TheLadders boasts some of the most innovative employers in the country. In fact, since announcing one year ago that we are a free resource to employers, TheLadders has grown to more than 49,000 – the highest number in our company’s history.

That said, it is important for us to celebrate the people who contribute to our success in each of our key markets. Earlier this year, I announced the launch of a new program for employers -- TheLadders ELITE -- which recognizes the top 1% of exceptional employers in our most popular recruiting markets. Each ELITE honoree is hand-selected based on their TTM performance (Trailing Twelve Months, immediately prior to the list’s announcement), and demonstration of outstanding citizenship within TheLadders’ community.

As Boston continues to hold its place as one of the nation’s top 10 hiring markets, it’s a hotbed for some of the best talent-acquisition experts in the country. Today, we proudly recognize the 60 professionals that stand out amongst the rest. 

Join us at JobMobile Boston to celebrate the 2013 honorees:

    3. Exposure in TheLadders’ social media (TheLadders Blog, Facebook, Twitter, etc.)
    4. Networking opportunities with other ELITE members
    5. Complimentary ELITE merchandise
