Best Places to Work is a national program that was developed to provide a confidential forum for local employers to participate in an evaluation of various local workplace best practices and programs. It provides an opportunity for employers to compare themselves to others of a similar size and serves as a valuable tool for business and human resource planning.
Last year's winners for the category of 25 employees and under were Brite Future Electric; Kmetz, Nuttall, Graham, CPA; Legler Orthodontics; and Spectrum Interior. In the category 25 to 150 employees the winners were Florida Eye Institute; Girard Equipment; Riverside Theatre; and Treasure Coast Community Health. In the category over 150 employees, the winners were Comcast; CVS Distribution Center; Seacoast National Bank; and VNA of the Treasure Coast.
This year, the companies indentified as Best Places to Work will be honored at a prestigious awards luncheon in October.
The kickoff will be held at 7:45 a.m. May 16 at Riverside Theatre, located at 3250 Riverside Park Riverside Theatre is also the kickoff sponsor for this year's event. A continental breakfast will be served.
