HRCap, the largest Korean-American Executive Search & HR Consulting Firm in the U.S., became the first Korean-American company to be honored as one of NJBIZ “2021 Best Places to Work in NJ.”

NJBIZ Best Places to Work honorees are evaluated by the Best Places to Work survey from the BridgeTower Media firm Best Companies Group, which confidentially collects survey data from a 2 part assessment survey: 1) Employer Benefits and Policy Questionnaire, and 2) Employee Feedback. Employers were evaluated on corporate history, demographics, HR policies, and response to the COVID pandemic; Employees provided feedback on work satisfaction, office culture, corporate values, training & development, digital assets, career growth potential, comp & benefits, and leadership.

The Top 120 NJBIZ Best Places to Work honorees spanned across 3 categories based on the number of employees, with 36 Small (15–49 employees), 42 Medium (50-249 employees), and 42 Big (250+ employees) businesses. In its first year of participation, HRCap was ranked #17 out of the Top 36 Small Businesses, and was evaluated highly on workplace satisfaction and employee experience, given our client service excellence, industry expertise, and timely response to the COVID pandemic.

On September 9, 2021, NJBIZ held the annual Best Places to Work in NJ Awards at The Event Center @ iPlay America to recognize and reveal the Top 120 rankings. Over 400 representatives attended the celebration event to represent their respective companies: New York Life NJ, AAA Northeast, Sharp USA, Wyndham Hotels & Resorts, Brother International, Holy Name Medical Center, Slalom Consulting.

The host of the event, Ken Kiczales (Publisher of NJBIZ), introduced and presented HRCap at rank #17 of Small Businesses, highlighting that “HRCap partners with their clients to localize and globalize with strategic investment in critical top talent. They have a proven global brand for service excellence in speed and accuracy with emphasis in integrity, intimacy, and professionalism.”

“HRCap is not your standard recruiting or staffing agency," said Stella H. Kim, the Head of Executive Search Practice at HRCap. “We have achieved great client satisfaction and employee satisfaction with our white-glove service centered around top notch performance and unique customer experience. We are learning to be nimble and adaptive to the change, oftentimes leading the transformational change for our industry. We have had incredibly strong years in 2020 and 2021 despite the pandemic, given the quality of top talent and dedication of all our teams here at HRCap. We are proud to have a team of highly collaborative and committed professionals, who value themselves as a partner to the growing organization, not just as an employee to the company. HRCap has become a family and a home where we can take great pride in the meaningful service we provide and the relationships we build together.”

We are incredibly grateful and honored to receive this recognition from NJBIZ,” said HRCap’s Founder and CEO Andrew Sungsoo Kim. “Being selected as Top 120 and ranked #17 truly shows how much Korean-American companies have grown and established themselves locally here in the U.S. and globally across the world. This will provide greater exposure and visibility of other Korean-American firms throughout the country. This award also validates how satisfied and proud our employees are of the quality of service they deliver to our clients and candidates. HRCap is committed to listening to feedback, improving our offerings, and regularly taking action to become a place where employees feel valued. We will continue to invest in our greatest asset, our people, by recruiting, developing, and retaining top talent to become the best Global Asian Executive Search & HR Consulting Firm here in the U.S.
