SC Biz News has revealed South Carolina’s Best Places to Work.
Nearly 700 people attended a special awards event Thursday at the Columbia Metropolitan Convention Center, where the best places were announced, honoring 111 companies and organizations in three categories.
Best Places to Work honorees were determined using several criteria through Best Companies Group. They must first meet or exceed the minimum response rate required on an employee survey in order for their data to be looked at. The overall score is a combination of the employee survey (worth 75%) and the Employer Questionnaire (worth 25%).
Best Companies Group then looks for at least an 80% positive response from employees and alignment across the eight core focus areas on the employee survey: Leadership and Planning, Corporate Culture and Communications, Role Satisfaction, Work Environment, Relationship with Supervisor, Training, Development and Resources, Pay and Benefits, and Overall Engagement.
“Congratulations to all the Best Places to Work in South Carolina,” said Jason Thomas, executive editor of SC Biz News. “Each of them plays a vital role in making South Carolina a leader in economic development and workplace satisfaction. They are the engine that powers South Carolina’s economy.”
Below is a list of Best Places to Work, by ranking.
