Salo takes home Twin Cities Business Best of Business 2021 Award for the fifth year running

We’d Like to Thank the Academy

They like us! Twin Cities Business and their partners like us! And we’re shouting from the rooftops: Salo won the Twin Cities Business Best of Business award for 2021 for Staffing, Recruiting, & Executive Search.

This one feels extra-special: It’s our fifth win in a row from Twin Cities Business.

It never gets less exciting to share that Salo has been acknowledged for the very real and very thorough work we pride ourselves on. That work could not be done without tipping our hat to our ambitious, go-getting team. Every member, every meeting, every email, every attitude: It’s how we get things done right. We are so thankful to be surrounded by—well—the best in the business.

An Honor to Be Nominated

Best of Business Awards are determined by Twin Cities Business, a lauded magazine with deep roots in the Minneapolis/St. Paul area community.

Businesses receive these awards upon being “identified as one of the most appreciated and affirmed companies in Minnesota,” according to Twin Cities Business.

Twin Cities Business partnered with DataJoe Research to identify 2021’s list of companies, and polled executives and business decisionmakers for recommendations in 40 business service categories.

Speech! Speech!

It means so much to be acknowledged by this prestigious award, by a publication we admire, and to share this rarefied air with other premier businesses and organizations, especially when our work impacts so many other businesses in our community.

We’re grateful for the ability to do the work and to celebrate this achievement with them—and you.
