Forbes ranks ProQuest among America’s best mid-size employers

May 17, 2018 (ANN ARBOR, MI) -- EdTech leader ProQuest has been ranked by Forbes as one of America's best mid-size employers. The ranking is the result of an independent survey of American workers about their feelings about their own company and others in their industry.

Forbes teamed with Statista.com to develop and administer a survey of 30,000 U.S. workers employed by companies with at least 1,000 employees. They were asked a series of questions, including how likely they would be to recommend their employer to others and other questions about the potential for development, working conditions, compensation and company reputation. Further, respondents were asked to identify stand-out companies across their industry.

"To be recognized this way by our employees and others across the ed tech community is very gratifying," said Matti Shem Tov, ProQuest CEO. "The important and meaningful work at ProQuest attracts exceptional people. We're committed to keeping them here by creating an environment that helps them thrive and grow in their careers, while making an impact on the community that we serve."
