To participate, companies or government entities had to employ at least 15 workers in Florida and have been in operation 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.
Centauri employees cited numerous factors in this year’s survey such as workplace amenities, a fitness program, fun teambuilding outings, volunteer opportunities and an excellent benefits package in addition to the company’s family-like culture which encourages collaboration.
"At Centauri, we work together like a team or a family. Whether it's participating in company-sponsored fitness classes, collaborating on marketing ideas, going to a baseball game or planning annual events - we all work well together and have a good time doing it," said Marguerite Wachter, Corporate Events Coordinator. "Moving into our new building will give us even more space to grow and work together."
The company’s new 30,000-square-foot waterfront facility in Lakewood Ranch is set to open next month and will feature an on-site fitness center and unique workspaces designed with teamwork and collaboration in mind.
"I'm really looking forward to having a fitness center and a wellness room at our new office," said Jenna Feverston, Advertising & Marketing Coordinator. "As a busy mom, this will make it much easier to achieve a work/life balance."
“What’s clear from our list is that amenities like free lunch or a game room at the workplace are not the things that make a great workplace. Those amenities are just part of the way companies reflect their cultures — it’s the culture of the company and the company’s ability to hire people who understand and embody the culture that create a great workplace,” says Executive Editor Mark Howard.
"The best companies obviously provide strong pay and benefits to their employees, but they also offer fun diversions such as ice cream socials, holiday parties and field days," says Florida Trend Publisher Andy Corty, "And these top companies encourage employees to participate in the organization's overall success with training and open communications."
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.
