The annual Best Companies list appeared in the August issue of Florida Trend magazine. We are one of one hundred companies that made the cut.
To be considered, Lanier Upshaw had to undergo an evaluation of our 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.
“The top companies seek high energy employees who vigorously accept the organization’s core values,” says Florida Trend Publisher Andy Corty. “The companies that attract these great employees are the same companies that show growth even in a challenging business environment. It’s our pleasure to recognize them and encourage others to build Florida’s competitive advantage.”
“I’m very proud of our Lanier Upshaw team for its recognition as one of Florida’s Best Companies To Work For,” Lanier Upshaw President and CEO Scott Franklin said. “I’ve always been a believer in trying to do the things that earn awards like this, but not getting hung up on winning the awards themselves. It’s all about improvement and fulfilling our potential – the accolades are validation that we’re on the right track and icing on the cake.”
