Lucas Group Recognized as a “Top Workplace for Remote Work”

2 December 2021

Atlanta, GA – December 2nd, 2021 – Lucas Groupranked eighth on Forbes’ Best Professional Recruiting Firms list for 2021, has been named as a “Top Workplace for Remote Work” by Top Workplaces. The award recognizes companies whose workforce is at least 50% remote. Lucas Group is recognized in the company category of 150-499 employees. 

At Lucas Group, the entire workforce is provided the option to work remotely. The company has workplaces in cities across the country for in-person work, collaboration, and team building. Employees located near these workplaces may choose whether to be in the office, and employees may also live/work in geographically distant locations. 

“We’ve always offered great work-life flexibility to our employee base, but the pandemic provided an opportunity for us to take this flexibility to a whole new level,” says Heath Henson, Chief People Officer. “The flexibility of offering remote work options has really turned into a differentiator for our brand which has significantly enhanced our ability to attract and retain the best employees. Being named a top company for remote work affirms that what we’re doing is working– employees are building thriving careers with the option to be productive from virtually anywhere. To that point we have a number of stories from employees finalizing deals from an extended vacation some even occurring outside of the country.” 

With a collaborative environment where recruiters and managers go out of their way to help each other, Lucas Group is the opposite of many executive search firms. New Associates are assigned Mentors and senior Associates and Partners actively help new Associates coming on board. Lucas Group Associates happily refer each other business across the company’s divisions and team up within divisions to provide exceptional client service. Monthly team building events and lunches, annual sales trips, and regular training events help make up a culture that feels like family. 

“A common challenge with remote work is the risk of burnout and loss of coworker connection,” says Natasha Austin, Internal Talent Acquisition Director. “By being intentional in our approach to keeping teams connected through various forms of technology & engagement and offering true flexibility to employees, we’ve built a culture where every employee has the opportunity to realize professional success and achieve personal balance.”  

“How we work is changing, and Lucas Group is at the forefront. Our perspective uniquely positions us to recruit exceptional talent for how teams work today and tomorrow,” says Austin. 

Lucas Group recruiters span many U.S. cities and functions including Accounting, Finance, Human Resources, IT, Legal, Marketing, Manufacturing Operations, Military Transition, Sales and Supply Chain. Beginning as a one-man operation in Atlanta dedicated to transitioning former military to the civilian workforce, Lucas Group is now a national recruiting firm dedicated to relationships built on trust and integrity.
