Companies that focus on employee engagement tend to perform better financially, attract and retain the best talent and enjoy improved customer service and client retention,” said Razor Suleman, Founder and Chairman of Achievers. “These companies serve as role models for other businesses to engage their own employees and build success.” Higher One will be honored alongside other recipients of the Achievers 50 Most Engaged Workplaces™ Award at the awards gala on October 25, 2012 at the Julia Morgan Ballroom in San Francisco, California.
