Versique Voted “Best of Business: Human Resource Services” by Twin Cities Business Magazine

Versique was recently named the top Human Resource Services company in the Twin Cities by Twin Cities Business Magazine’s Best of Business Awards.

Twin Cities Business Magazine partnered with DataJoe Research to survey local executives and business decision makers to determine the most highly ranked, go-to providers they confidently refer to their peers and clients.

According to Twin Cities Business, “Thousands of local professionals were asked the question, ‘Which companies exemplify true excellence in their respective industries?’”

Versique was selected as the Twin Cities business community’s choice for the top Staffing/Recruiting/Executive Search firm.

“At Versique, our mantra is, ‘We deliver experiences worthy of a referral,” said Chris Ohlendorf, Co-Founder of Versique. “That’s what this award is all about, and it’s a tribute to our employees and the experiences they share with our clients, candidates, and the business community. I could not be more proud of them and the company we’ve grown.”

Here’s what Twin Cities Business Magazine had to say about Versique:

With 100 employees and more than $20 million in annual revenue, Versique is one of the fastest-growing executive search firms in Minnesota. Versique has three major areas of expertise: consulting, executive search, and digital marketing services – and serves clients of every size, from startups to Fortune 500 companies. The company’s culture encourages mutual support, collaboration, and peer recognition, with incentives for top performers. Versique’s digital-marketing services offerings are growing so fast that in July the division was spun off into a separate business unit known as Parqa.
