On Thursday, February 25, 2016, South Florida Business Journal presented the 2016 Best Places to Work Awards, a program that celebrates excellence and employee satisfaction in the workplace. Each year, companies are invited to participate in the survey program, which is powered by Quantum Workplaces. They survey evaluates ten areas of engagement, including employee benefits and recognition, leadership, turnover, employee and leadership management and more.
Awards were presented in three categories, Small (10 to 49 employees), Medium (50 to 99 employees) and Large (100 + employees) in a countdown format to the number one ranked company in each category. Each honoree company was presented with a custom plaque and invited up onto stage for photos. Nominations were accepted from August through October 2015 and surveys were administered in the month of November. All honoree companies were notified in December and rankings were announced at the awards luncheon.
The awards luncheon was sponsored by AvMed, Baptist Health South Florida, Comcast Business, The Signature Grand and Comcast Business.
