The “Best Places to Work” awards program was a commissioned study by CareerSource Research Coast.  The purpose of the program was to recognize some of the best employers in our local area and provide vital information to companies about the practices they use to attract and retain employees.  Each company participating was required to complete a 40-question survey that allowed their employment practices to be analyzed by the consulting firm of Personnel Dynamics Consulting of Florida. Every company participating in the survey will receive a detailed 20-page report detailing the information on their company and the results of the survey.  Those companies who are being recognized receive a special award at the Best Places To Work Awards Banquet on June 16, 2016.
