Today, Florida Trend magazine named Coastal Cloud #3 of the “Best Companies to Work For” in the 2017 mid-sized employers category. The annual Best Companies list is featured in the August issue of Florida Trendmagazine. One-hundred companies are ranked in small, medium and large employer categories.
Participating companies 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. To participate, companies had to employ at least 15 workers in Florida and have been in operation at least one year.
“We are extremely proud to be ranked so high amongst a list of great companies,” says Sara Hale, co-founder and managing partner of Coastal Cloud. “We put as much focus on our company culture as we do our growth, work and client satisfaction. We greatly value the talent we have on our team and work diligently to maintain our unique environment.”
“What’s clear from our list is that amenities like free lunch or a game room at the workplace are not the things that make a great workplace. Those amenities are just part of the way companies reflect their cultures — it’s the culture of the company and the company’s ability to hire people who understand and embody the culture that creates a great workplace,” says Executive Editor Mark Howard.
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.
