Norfolk, VA (November 2016): Wall, Einhorn & Chernitzer, P.C. (WEC) was recently named as one of the 2017 Best Places to Work in Virginia. The annual list of “Best Places to Work” was created by Virginia Business Magazine and Best Companies Group.
This survey and award program was designed to identify, recognize and honor the best places of employment in Virginia, benefiting the state's economy, its work force and businesses. The Best Places to Work in Virginia list is made up of a total of 80 companies, divided into three groups: small employers (fewer than 100 employees); mid-sized employers (100-250 employees); and large-sized employers (more than 250 employees).
To be considered for participation, companies had to fulfill the following eligibility requirements:
- Be a for-profit, not-for-profit business or government entity;
- Be a publicly or privately held business;
- Have a facility in the state of Virginia;
- Have at least 15 employees working in the state of Virginia; and
- Must be in business a minimum of 1 year.
Companies from across the state entered the two-part survey process to determine the Best Places to Work in Virginia. 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 ranking. Best Companies Group managed the overall registration, survey and analysis process and determined the final ranking.
The final rankings will be announced at an awards luncheon on February 2, 2017 at the Williamsburg Lodge in Williamsburg, VA. For more information on the Best Places to Work in Virginia program, visit www.BestPlacesToWorkVA.com.
