ST. PETERSBURG, FL, Aug. 09, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The annual Best Companies To Work For In Florida list is featured in the August issue of Florida Trend magazine. One hundred companies are ranked in small, medium and large employer categories. 

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. 

“This year it was appropriate to focus on how the Best Companies to Work For responded to the impact of the coronavirus,” says Executive Editor Mark Howard. “The companies we report on found creative ways to keep their businesses going while supporting their employees and continuing to serve their customers.”

“An impressive list of Florida companies… that know how to do it right!” says Florida Trend Publisher David Denor.  “When faced with the challenges during these uncertain times, many of these companies didn’t flinch.  Knowing they needed to pivot, shift working conditions, maintain morale, provide safe working environments and still drive business opportunities, they got it done… these best companies provide inspiration and lessons we can all learn from.” 

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. For a list of the 100 Best Companies To Work For In Florida, go to
