Clearwater, Fla. (PRWEB) August 10, 2009
Sunbelt Software, a leading provider of Windows security software, today announced that it was recently named one of Florida's Best Companies to Work For by Florida Trend business magazine.
One-hundred companies were recognized in small, medium and large company categories. Sunbelt placed as number 25 on the rankings of medium-sized companies. The first statewide Best Companies list appears in the August issue Florida Trend and on FloridaTrend.com.
The Best Companies to Work For in Florida program was created by Florida Trend and Best Companies Group and endorsed by the Florida Chamber of Commerce, the Florida Association of Chamber Professionals, the Florida Economic Development Council (FEDC), the Florida Restaurant and Lodging Association, the Florida Society of Association Executives (FSAE) and the Orlando Regional Chamber of Commerce.
"Our goal is to recognize companies that strive to build even better workplaces for their employees, thereby strengthening their own as well as Florida's competitive advantage in the national and global arenas," says Florida Trend Publisher Bruce Faulmann.
Companies that chose to participate in the Best Companies to Work For in Florida process underwent a two-part survey process. The first part consisted of evaluating each company's workplace policies, practices, philosophy, systems and demographics. The second part consisted of an employee survey to measure employee satisfaction. The combined scores determined the top companies and the final ranking. Best Companies Group managed the overall registration, survey and analysis process and determined the final rankings.
"It is an honor to be among the top Best Companies to Work for in Florida and to be recognized for something that our entire company can take credit for," said Alex Eckelberry, CEO of Sunbelt Software. "We place high value on creating a corporate culture that fosters a rewarding place to work and value the loyalty and dedication of our employees."
"We've highlighted the practices of companies that have established themselves as great places to work -- including everything from how they train their workers to how they communicate and the kind of pay and benefits they provide. This is a great opportunity for companies in Florida to learn from each other as they go about improving their own effectiveness," says Mark Howard, executive editor.
