To participate, companies or government entities were required to have at least 15 workers in Florida and to be in operation for at least one year. Companies that chose to participate 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.
"It was interesting to see how the Best Companies plan to operate, going forward, as the pandemic's threat wanes," says Executive Editor Mark Howard. "Many of our Best Companies are 'high-touch' companies that rely on collaboration among their employees and/or face-to-face contact with their clients. And most indicated that they intended to return to traditional in-office operations. But it's also clear that many have found that the company's performance didn't suffer greatly with employees working from home. Most firms indicated they're willing to give employees more flexibility in being able to work at home at least some of the time."
"Another impressive list of Florida companies... that know how to do it right!" says Florida Trend Publisher David Denor. "When faced with challenges these companies didn't flinch. They pivoted when needed, shifted working conditions as necessary, maintained employee morale, provided safe working environments, and continued to drive business opportunities. They got it done...even during the toughest of times. 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.
