SARASOTA, Fla. (PRWEB) July 26, 2012
FCCI Insurance Group was again named one of Florida’s Best Companies To Work For. This year, FCCI was ranked #5 in the Best Large Companies category. This is the fourth consecutive year FCCI has ranked in the top ten.
The fourth annual statewide Best Companies list appears in the August issue of Florida Trend magazine and on FloridaTrend.com. One-hundred companies were recognized in small, medium and large company categories.
“One thing that distinguishes best companies everywhere is their ability to hire effectively. So for our coverage this year we focused on how Florida's Best Companies go about identifying and choosing their workers,” says Mark Howard, executive editor. “Hard skills are clearly important, but the companies we talked to generally put a lot of emphasis on other things as well — how well a worker will fit into the company's culture, for example. And in deciding whether to hire someone, they frequently involve as many of their current employees as possible.”
“The groups that carefully evaluate new staff are frequently the same ones that serve their clients exceptionally well,” says Florida Trend Publisher Andrew Corty. “It's our pleasure to recognize these great companies and encourage others to join them in building Florida's competitive advantage.”
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.
To be considered for participation, 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. Best Companies Group managed the registration, survey and analysis and determined the final rankings.
