Employees nominated their employers and were surveyed about several topics, including practices and policies that make these companies the top places to work.
In the Tampa Bay region, 100 leading employers were nominated by their employees. To be considered for participation, companies or government entities had to employ at least 50 workers in Florida and be at least a year old.
The Top Workplaces 2013 in Tampa Bay program was created by the Tampa Bay Times and WorkplaceDynamics.
The companies were ranked based on leadership, compensation and training, workplace flexibility, and diversity. The rankings were published on TampaBay.com, in the April 21 edition of the Tampa Bay Times and on April 22 in tbt*.
“We are thrilled to be one of Tampa Bay’s Top Workplaces,” said Marlene Velez, director of human resources. “Our employees are our number one resource, and we are committed to providing a positive, productive work environment for all of our team members.”
