The Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) Colorado State Council, six local SHRM chapters in Colorado, Jobing.com, Colorado Biz Magazine, and the Best Companies Group honored the top 40 Best Companies to Work For in Colorado for 2008 during an awards ceremony at the DCPA's Seawall Ballroom today. 9News Business Reporter Simone Wilkerson emceed the event.

"The SHRM Colorado State Council was proud to support this statewide Colorado program that recognizes the Best Companies to Work For," said Carlene Goldthwaite, Director of the SHRM Colorado State Council. "The strong attendance at today's event underscores the value of this event. It is a standard of achievement and a distinction that makes companies more marketable to potential employees and customers."

The Best Companies to Work for in Colorado recognizes participants in two different categories in Colorado: small/medium-sized companies (25-249 employees) and large-sized employers (250 employees or more).

Through established research practices, a survey was sent to both employers and employees in a large and diverse pool of companies across Colorado. The Best Companies Group, in coordination with ModernThink, LLC scored the workplace practices surveys along with the employee survey using a formula similar to, but not identical to, Fortune's "100 Best Companies to Work for in America." Winners are highlighted in the August 2008 Colorado Biz Magazine.

To be eligible for consideration, companies had to meet the following criteria:

Be a for-profit or not-for-profit business
Be a publicly or privately held business, or government entity
Have a facility in the state of Colorado
Have a minimum of 25 employees in the state of Colorado
