Sereno Group Named Bay Area Top Workplace for the Seventh Consecutive Year

For the 7th consecutive year, Sereno Group has been named as one of the best places to work in the greater Bay Area by the Bay Area News Group in its prestigious Top Workplaces 2016 list. The annual profile identifies the top 100 places to work in the Bay Area’s Santa Clara, San Mateo, Contra Costa, Alameda, and Santa Cruz counties.

Sereno Group is one of a handful of companies across all industries to be honored every single year since the inception of the award in 2010. Also, Sereno Group stands alone as the only real estate company to be honored seven consecutive years.

“Our team is amazing! Sereno Group is blend of hard working, vibrant, considerate, and thoughtful professionals. The group’s collective energy and graciousness creates a fantastic culture,” said Chris Trapani, Founder of Sereno Group. “We are truly humbled by this continued yearly recognition as one of the Top Workplaces in the Bay Area; this is now for seven years in a row for us. We strive to be an employee-centric organization and this award highlights that commitment.”

Sereno Group was originally recognized in 2010 on the small-size company list (50-150 employees) and has received the recognition on the medium-size company list (151-500 employees) for the past four years. The firm has been ranked either first or second in each category for each of the past seven years. More than 7,000 companies have been nominated since 2010 and the final list of 100 companies comprises a diverse cross section of firms which include high tech and engineering organizations, nonprofits, hotel services, and legal firms, among others.

The Bay Area News Group, which owns the San Jose Mercury News, Oakland Tribune, Contra Costa Times and other media properties, selects Top Workplace winners based on an annual survey of Bay Area company employees, measuring employee engagement, organizational health, satisfaction and company culture. The employee survey is conducted by WorkplaceDynamics, LLP, a leading research firm on organizational health and employee engagement.
