TrueBlue’s PeopleManagement Division Recognized for Culture Excellence in 2022 Top Workplaces Awards


Earns 3 Culture Excellence Awards based on employee survey feedback


CHICAGO —May 25, 2022— TrueBlue’s PeopleManagement division announced today that its three brands – Centerline Drivers, SIMOS Solutions and Staff Management | SMX – have been recognized with three Culture Excellence Awards for Leadership; Innovation; and Purpose & Values. These awards are in addition to its previously announced place on the 2022 Top Workplaces USA list.

The awards come from employee feedback gathered through a third-party survey administered by research partner Energage, LLC, a leading provider of technology-based employee engagement tools. The anonymous survey measures several aspects of workplace culture, including alignment, execution and connection.

“Living our purpose, being innovators in the staffing industry and leading by example are key elements of our brands’ and our teams’ success,” said Carl Schweihs, president and COO of PeopleManagement. “It is empowering and rewarding to know that our teams not only live our purpose but value what those efforts bring to our business. Knowing that this recognition comes from our own people’s feedback makes these awards even more special.”

PeopleManagement has won Top Workplaces USA Awards in 2021 and 2022.

“During this very challenging time, Top Workplaces has proven to be a beacon of light for organizations, as well as a sign of resiliency and strong business performance," said Eric Rubino, Energage CEO. "When you give your employees a voice, you come together to navigate challenges and shape your path forward. Top Workplaces draw on real-time insights into what works best for their organization, so they can make informed decisions that have a positive impact on their people and their business.”
