The Lord’s Place Makes Top 10 Best Companies List

Categories: In the News

The Lord’s Place was recently named one of Florida’s Best Companies To Work For.   The Lord’s Place ranked ninth in the list of the 32 mid-sized companies receiving the honor, with 50 to 249 employees. This is the fifth consecutive year that The Lord’s Place has received this prestigious designation.

The annual Best Companies list is featured in the August issue of Florida Trend magazine. One-hundred companies are ranked in small, medium and large employer categories.

“We are pleased to once again be recognized by Florida Trend as one of the best companies to work for in Florida,” said The Lord’s Place CEO Diana Stanley. “It is a recognition of our company’s culture to demonstrate to our employees their great value as they work to help some of the most vulnerable members of our community.  This work brings with it unique stressors as well as rewards.  We are diligent in our efforts to make sure our team members know they are appreciated and are critical to the success of our work.”

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.

“Employers we speak with talk a lot about how workplaces are changing and how young employees expectations are changing. For the Best Companies issue this year, we spoke with new hires and got their perspectives on what attracted them to the companies where they now work and what they now like best about their workplaces. One key concern that young workers talk about is whether the company seems to care about more than their academic record and technical qualifications,” says Executive Editor Mark Howard.

“The best companies obviously provide strong pay and benefits to their employees, but they also offer fun diversions,” 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.
