LOS GATOS, CA – For the 6th 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 their prestigious Top Workplaces 2015 list, an annual profile of the top 100 places to work in the Bay Area’s Santa Clara, San Mateo, Contra Costa, Alameda, and Santa Cruz counties.
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 three years. The firm has been ranked either first or second in each category for each of the past six years.
A significant distinction, Sereno Group is the only real estate company to win every single year since the awards inception in 2010, as well as one of only seven companies across all businesses. More than 6,400 companies have been nominated since 2010 and the final list of 100 companies is comprised of a diverse cross section of firms which include high tech and engineering organizations, nonprofits, hotel services, and legal firms, among others.
