Lanier Upshaw Selected as a Top 100 Company to Work For

Lanier Upshaw was recently named one of Florida’s Best Companies To Work For. 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, and Lanier Upshaw was ranked #14 on the best midsize company list.

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.

“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,” said Executive Editor Mark Howard.

Scott Franklin, Lanier Upshaw President and CEO commented, “We thank everyone at Lanier Upshaw for making our company such a great place to work!”

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. Click here to see a list of the 100 Best Companies To Work For In Florida.
