BRPH, an international architecture, engineering design and construction services firm, has been listed in the top 100 “Best Companies to Work For in Florida” by Florida Trend magazine.
“Our success as a firm is directly attributed to the hard work and dedication of our employees, so we do all we can to ensure our team members are excited to come to work every day,” said BRPH President and CEO Brian Curtin. “Employee satisfaction remains a top priority for us and we’re honored to be recognized as a Florida Trend ‘Best Company to Work For.’”
To compile the Best Companies list, Florida Trend partnered with the Best Companies Group, an organization that surveys firms interested in participating. The two-part survey consisted of questions regarding company policies, practices and demographics, as well as 72 statements on a five-point agreement scale answered anonymously by company employees. Two additional open-ended questions rounded out the survey which in general focused on eight themes: leadership and planning; corporate culture and communications; role satisfaction; work environment; relationship with supervisor; training and development; pay and benefits; and overall engagement.
"The Best Companies find ways to make the workplace an easy place to be — at least one in five of this year's best companies has a game room or game table. Those companies understand the value of using games to build relationships among their employees, and also in promoting wellness. In addition, those gaming tables reflect another trend: Employers are investing in their office space," says Florida Trend Executive Editor Mark Howard.
"Top companies provide excellent pay, health insurance, 401k plans, and other "hard" benefits, but they also offer the leadership and communications that encourage employees to participate in the organization's overall success," says Florida Trend Publisher Andy Corty. "And to that long list, enjoyment options such as table tennis or other games bring energy to the enterprise."
The annual best companies list is featured in the August issue of Florida Trend magazine. BRPH ranked #23 in large firms consisting of 250 or more employees.RSS
