The annual Best Companies To Work For In Florida list is featured in the August issue of Florida Trend Magazine. One hundred companies are ranked in small, medium and large employer categories.
To participate, companies or government entities had to employ at least 15 workers in Florida and have been in operation at least one year. Companies underwent an evaluation of their workplace policies, practices, philosophy, systems and demographics. The process also included a survey to measure employee satisfaction. The combined scores determined the top companies and the final ranking.
"This year it was appropriate to focus on how the Best Companies to Work For responded to the impact of the Coronavirus," says Executive Editor Mark Howard. "The companies we report on found creative ways to keep their businesses going while supporting their employees and continuing to serve their customers."
"It was an honor to be recognized amongst very respectable organizations from across the state," says SST President Dave Bailey. "But it was an even greater honor for the people of our organization to have a moment to be seen for all that they do! We believe in rewarding world class contribution and that's what really makes this organization one of the 'Best Companies' - the people who show up every day with a commitment to excellence. For their peers, their customers, and their communities."
"An impressive list of Florida companies... that know how to do it right!" says Florida Trend Publisher David Denor. "When faced with the challenges during these uncertain times, many of these companies didn't flinch. Knowing they needed to pivot, shift working conditions, maintain morale, provide safe working environments and still drive business opportunities, they got it done... these best companies provide inspiration and lessons we can all learn from."
The Best Companies To Work For In Florida program was created by Florida Trend and Best Companies Group and is endorsed by the HR Florida State Council. Best Companies Group managed the registration, survey and analysis and determined the final rankings.
