“Being named a Best Place to Work in Birmingham is a great team award for our company,” said Robert Jolly, Founder and CEO of Retail Specialists. “When my partner, Mead Silsbee, and I started this company in 2005 we had no idea where it would take us. I couldn’t be more proud of the hard work, growth, and unique culture our team has seen over the last two decades.”

The BBJ’s annual Best Places to Work program recognizes employers in the Birmingham area that have gone above and beyond to create outstanding workplace environments. They went through a survey system from Quantum Workplace and have come out in the top of their categories. Retail Specialists is a finalist for the Small Sized Business category with 10-24 employees. Its sister company, Retail Strategies, was also named a finalist for the 2022 Best Places to Work award.

The 2022 honorees will be featured in the Business Journal’s May 13th Best Places to Work special edition, as well as online. The 2022 finalists will be honored at the BBJ Best Places to Work in person event in May. Category winners will be announced at the event.
