Orlando, Florida (PRWEB) August 13, 2014
UniFirst, a North American leader in the supply and servicing of uniforms, workwear, and protective clothing, was recently named one of Florida’s “Best Companies To Work For.” UniFirst serves business customers through 225 locations in the United States and Canada, with several in Florida, including Clearwater, Fort Pierce, Fort Myers, Jacksonville, Ocala, Miami, Orlando, Panama City, Pompano Beach, Tallahassee, Tampa, and Titusville.
The annual Best Companies list appears in the August issue of Florida Trend magazine. One hundred companies are ranked in small, medium and large employer categories. UniFirst placed 8th in the large employer category.
"Our Best Companies to Work For coverage always seeks to offer lessons for companies that aspire to create a Best Company workplace,” says Mark Howard, the magazine’s executive editor. 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 participate, companies or government entities had to employ at least 15 workers in Florida and been in operation at least one year. Companies that chose to participate underwent an evaluation of their workplace policies, practices, philosophies, 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 ranking.
"The top companies seek high energy employees who vigorously accept the organization's core values," says Florida Trend Publisher Andy Corty. "The companies that attract these great employees are the same companies that show growth even in a challenging business environment. It's our pleasure to recognize them and encourage others to build Florida's competitive advantage."
The “Best Companies to Work For” honor helps round out a spate of recent accolades UniFirst has won. The company has also earned “50 Best Companies to Sell for in North America” designation by Selling Power magazine, has been named to Apparel magazine’s “Top 50 Apparel Companies” list, and has garnered a spot on the prestigious Forbes magazine “Platinum 400 - Best Big Companies” list.
