The NJBIZ program identifies, recognizes, and honors the top places of employment in New Jersey that benefit the state's economy, its workforce, and businesses. The award program, created in 2005, is produced by NJBIZ and evaluates each nominated company's workplace policies, practices, philosophy, systems, and demographics. Employees are then surveyed to measure the employee experience. SHI International’s corporate headquarters is located in Somerset, N.J. and houses about 1,000 employees.
NJBIZ, program sponsors, and partners will honor this year’s 100 Best Places to Work and announce their ranking during an awards dinner and ceremony on Wednesday, April 25, 2012 at the Hilton East Brunswick.

In addition to the company’s overall ranking, SHI International was recognized in the Best New Ideas category of the Top Workplaces Special Awards, given to companies with the highest ratings in key areas. SHI International’s Austin office employs over 225 staff.
The Austin American Statesman worked with industry leader Workplace Dynamics to rate the best places to work in Central Texas, based on anonymous surveys from employees. Almost 600 companies were nominated to the Top Workplaces list in three separate categories: large, mid-size, and small companies. Participating companies’ employees were asked to rate their employer on issues such as leadership and direction, ethics and values, and how well employees are treated.
SHI currently employs nearly 1,800 staff across 26 offices around the world.
