The Smart Center has been putting people to work in Shasta County since 1979. Realizing that this mission depends on companies that are hiring, and understanding that a healthy business community creates economic vitality, Smart has worked hard to better understand the challenges businesses face.
In doing so, Smart discovered great things happening in local companies, large and small. From that discovery, Best Companies to Work For in Shasta County was born and the first awards were presented in 2007.
Since establishing this effort, Smart has identified many examples of great work environments, cost effective hiring, employee training opportunities, and exemplary customer service - and hopes to be the catalyst in sharing these examples and helping every company become the best it can be.
Shasta County truly is a great place to live and work and Smart is proud to showcase local practices that create the best companies to work for in Shasta County!
