HOUSTON (PRWEB) March 31, 2023
Smith, a leading global distributor of semiconductors and electronic components, today announces that it was named to Comparably’s lists for Best Sales Teams and Best Company Outlook, ranking #13 and #90, respectively. These recognitions are based exclusively on anonymous employee feedback on the Comparably website. This is the first time Smith has been named to either list.
The awards come after Smith’s best year ever in 2022, during which the company earned $4.8 billion in total revenue and made significant investments in global expansion. Smith opened a new sales office in London and expanded its existing offices in Berlin, Cluj-Napoca, Guadalajara, Hong Kong, and Shenzhen. The company increased its workforce by 18 percent worldwide and continues to attract top talent for new career opportunities.
“Smith has a tremendous infrastructure in place to drive our growth,” said Jennifer Kabbara, Director of Global Sales at Smith. “From our IT systems and operational processes to our employee development and collaborative environment, we have equipped our workforce with the tools and resources they need to support their success.”
Smith’s sales team members gave the company an A+ rating in 17 different categories, from leadership and outlook to diversity and environment.
“Our people are Smith’s most valuable asset, and our investments in our people are a key component of our success,” said Jennifer. “These investments help to foster growth, opportunity, and satisfaction among our employees, which in turn supports our recruitment and retention efforts.”
The company’s outlook ranked in the top five percent of nearly 1,500 similarly sized companies and received an A+ rating from Comparably. These scores reflect the positive sentiments shared among hundreds of anonymous reviews:
