This county wide survey and awards program is designed to identify, recognize and honor the best places of employment in San Diego, benefiting the county's economy, workforce and businesses. The 2012 Best Places to Work in San Diego list is made up of 85 companies. The rankings of the Best Places to Work in San Diego will be unveiled at an awards ceremony and in a special publication in mid August.
To be considered for participation, companies had to fulfill the following eligibility requirements:
•Be a publicly or privately held business
•Be a for-profit, not-for-profit business or government entity
•Have a facility in San Diego County
•Have a minimum of 15 full-time or part-time employees working in San Diego

"We know that being a Best Place to Work involves not just having an attractive culture, effective policies, and rewarding corporate programs," says Todd Willer, Learning and Performance Manager at The Ken Blanchard Companies. "It also requires having great employees who create that culture and live the Blanchard mission."
"We work hard to create a work environment that cultivates employee work passion and shared purpose," says Scott Blanchard, Principal and EVP of The Ken Blanchard Companies. "We practice what we teach our clients, so this recognition is especially gratifying."
Companies from across the county entered the two-part survey process to determine the Best Places to Work in San Diego. The first part consisted of evaluating each nominated company's workplace policies, practices, philosophy, systems, and demographics. This part of the process was worth approximately 25% of the total evaluation. The second part consisted of an employee survey to measure the employee experience. This part of the process was worth approximately 75% of the total evaluation. The combined scores determined the top companies and the final rankings. Best Companies Group evaluated the data collected from the participating companies and used its expertise to determine the final rankings.
