This survey and awards program was designed to identify, recognize, and honor the best employers in San Diego benefiting the state’s economy, workforce, and businesses. The list is made up of 100 companies split into four categories: 33 small-sized companies (15–49 US employees), 33 medium-sized companies (50–249 US employees), 14 large-sized companies (250–1,999 US employees), and 20 mega-sized companies (2,000 or more US employees). The Ken Blanchard Companies received sixth place in the large-sized companies’ category.
Companies from across the county entered an extensive 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. The second part consisted of an employee survey to measure the employee experience. The combined scores determined the top companies and the final ranking. Best Companies Group managed the overall registration and survey process in San Diego, analyzed the data, and determined the final rankings.
“We are honored to receive this recognition. We strive to practice what we teach and we’ve seen first-hand with our clients that by improving their leadership capacity they help to create engaged and productive workplaces and make a real difference in people’s lives,” said Howard Farfel, President of Blanchard®. “We’re helping people make a leadership difference around the globe and our employees find it rewarding to be a part of the Blanchard organization.”
The ranked companies were recognized at a special awards ceremony on August 7, 2014 and the rankings will be published in the August 18 issue of the San Diego Business Journal.For more information on the Best Places to Work in San Diego program, visit www.BestPlacesToWorkSD.com.
