The Best Companies To Work For in Florida program was created by Florida Trend and Best Companies Group and endorsed by the HR Florida State Council.
“Companies that retain the best employees with strong workplace programs typically stand out from the crowd by offering exceptional customer focus from a friendly, upbeat staff," says Florida Trend Publisher Andrew Corty. "It's our pleasure to recognize these great organizations and encourage others to join them in building Florida's competitive advantage."
To be considered for participation, companies or government entities had to employ at least 15 workers in Florida and be at least a year old.
“We are honored to be named one of the Best Companies to Work For in Florida. We have always felt that our employees are our greatest asset, and earning this distinction serves as an important reminder of the dynamic family environment we have within our team,” said Carlos Ferrera, Chief Operating Officer at Solstice Benefits.
Companies that chose to participate in the Best Companies To Work For in Florida process underwent a two-part survey process.

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.
"One strong theme in this month's Best Companies coverage is how companies keep good employees. We highlight companies that take sophisticated, enlightened approaches to training, communicate the company's values clearly, and listen to employees as they try to improve the workplace and make the company more productive." says Mark Howard, executive editor.
