IDR, Inc.’s Denver and Nashville Branches Recognized as 2020 Best and Brightest Companies to Work For Winners

National IT Staffing Firm Recognized for Leadership and HR Best Practices in Expanded Regional Competition


ALPHARETTA, GA – IDR, Inc., an award-winning, employee-owned staffing firm, is excited to announce their selection by the National Association for Business Resources (NABR) as a 2020 winner for Denver and Nashville’s Best and Brightest Companies to Work For. This award identifies and honors organizations with a commitment to excellence in operations and employee enrichment leading to increased productivity and performance.


The NABR expanded their Best and Brightest Companies to Work For program to new regions in 2020 including Charlotte, Denver, Miami, Nashville, and New York. The winning companies in each of these regions were assessed by an independent research firm, which reviewed a number of key measures relative to other nationally recognized winners. Out of 480 nominations in these 5 regions, IDR is proud to be among the 47 winning organizations that were selected. Best and Brightest winners were not ranked.


“We are thrilled to have not just one, but two IDR branches recognized as Best and Brightest Companies to Work For in this expanded competition,” said Ashely Holohan, President and Chief Operating Officer at IDR, Inc. “In spite of the challenges this year has brought, our offices in Denver and Nashville have thrived and these awards are a recognition of their hard work and commitment. We’re honored to have Denver and Nashville join our Atlanta and Dallas branches as Best and Brightest winners.”


“Throughout 2020, the Best and Brightest Companies to Work For have demonstrated leadership and forward thinking as they pivoted their business and workforce through COVID-19. As the conversation and focus has shifted, Best and Brightest winning companies have also been a voice for important actions regarding creating a virtual culture that works and ensuring that the wellbeing of their employees come first. In these unique times, these Best and Brightest Companies to Work For excel and share their knowledge with others,” said Jennifer Kluge, President and CEO, Best and Brightest Programs.


“We are grateful to be recognized as a Best and Brightest Company alongside so many impressive organizations,” said Danny Roberge, Vice President of IDR’s Denver and Nashville offices. “We have always recognized that our people are the reason we’ve been able to grow and succeed. Providing an exceptional experience for our employees and consultants is crucial and we will continue to strive for excellence in this area.”


The 2020 Best and Brightest Companies to Work For winners will be honored in the spring of 2021 during the virtual Illuminate Business Summit Week. This weeklong virtual celebration in March will be filled with opportunities for education, connection, engagement, and inspiration.
