The Ōnin Group, a Birmingham-based group of companies focused primarily on staffing, has been recognized as a 2022 Staffing Industry Analysts (SIA) Best Place to Work Firm. Ōnin has earned this recognition for the second consecutive year.

“Ōnin has always committed to its mission of creating opportunity and empowering people, and we’ve continued to intensify that commitment to our internal employees and contingent workers over the past two years,” said Christina Johnson, Director of People & Culture at The Ōnin Group. “We’ve added more benefits and created deeper investments into our people. That’s something that our team feels.”

Ōnin has invested in comprehensive benefits for both its internal employees (Ōninites) and its contingent workers (Teammates), which includes affordable health, dental, vision, legal services and life insurance as well as mental health counseling programs and other benefits. Internal employees also have access to a leadership development program that helps them nurture their full potential.

“The more we invest in our teams, the better those teams are equipped to produce exceptional value for clients and communities,” said Johnson. “The Ōnin team is incredibly passionate and competitive in everything we do. This is an inspiring place to invest in work that truly matters at a high level of excellence.”

SIA Best Staffing Firms to Work For awards are given annually by SIA, the global advisor on staffing and workforce solutions. The award recognizes employers for their top performance in engaging their employees and creating a workplace conducive to talent development, enjoyment, collaboration and productivity.

Close to 300 firms sought participation in the program this year, which was conducted by SIA in conjunction with Quantum Workplace. Internal employees at each firm were asked to complete an online survey that measured key engagement categories, focusing on items including teamwork, trust in senior leaders, feeling valued, manager effectiveness, compensation and benefits. Companies were ranked in each category according to their overall score, and winners were chosen based entirely on the survey results.

Ōnin’s culture has also been recognized by the Birmingham Business Journal as a 2022 Best Place to Work company.

Non-staffing ventures include Mōmentum Capital Funding, Woodhaven Custom Calls, Ōnin Properties and Pleasant Hill Timber.
