The Best Companies To Work Forin Florida program was created by Florida Trend and Best Companies Group and endorsed by the Florida Chamber of Commerce, the Florida Association of Chamber Professionals, the Florida Economic Development Council, the Florida Restaurant and Lodging Association, the Florida Society of Association Executives and the Orlando Regional Chamber of Commerce.

“We are honored to be recognized by Florida Trend. Our employees are our most valuable asset, and we strive to provide solid benefits for them so we can continue to recruit and retain the best,” said Yvette Tremonti, vice president of Human Resources at Moffitt. “It’s quite an accomplishment to be on a list with other leading Florida companies.”

To be considered for participation, companies or government entities had to employ at least 15 workers in Florida and be at least 1 year old.

Companies that chose to participate in the Best Companies To Work Forin Florida process underwent a two-part survey process. The first part consisted of evaluating each company’s workplace policies, practices, philosophy, systems and demographics. The second part consisted of an employee survey to measure employee satisfaction. The combined scores determined the top companies and the final ranking. Best Companies Group managed the overall registration, survey and analysis process and determined the final rankings. Companies were not required to pay a participation fee to go through the online assessment process.

“Our goal is to recognize companies that strive to build even better workplaces for their employees, thereby strengthening their own, as well as Florida’s competitive advantage in the national and global arenas,” says Florida Trend Publisher Bruce Faulmann.
