CLEARWATER, Fla., July 29 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- BayCare Health System today announced that it has been recognized as one of Florida's Best Companies To Work For by Florida Trend magazine.
The rankings, which recognized 100 small, medium and large companies, were compiled from surveys of participating companies' employees and comprise the first statewide Best Companies list. The results appear in the August issue of Florida Trend and on FloridaTrend.com.
"I am very proud that BayCare Health System has been recognized as one of Florida's best places to work," said Stephen R. Mason, President and CEO of BayCare Health System. "This honor is a strong testament to the hard work and dedication of all of BayCare's nearly 18,000 employees and a demonstration of the power of us working together as a system."
The Best Companies To Work For in Florida program was created by Florida Trend and Best Companies Group and endorsed by the Florida Chamber of Commerce, the Florida Association of Chamber Professionals, the Florida Economic Development Council (FEDC), the Florida Restaurant and Lodging Association, the Florida Society of Association Executives (FSAE) and the Orlando Regional Chamber of Commerce.
"We've highlighted the practices of companies that have established themselves as great places to work -- including everything from how they train their workers to how they communicate and the kind of pay and benefits they provide. This is a great opportunity for companies in Florida to learn from each other as they go about improving their own effectiveness," says Mark Howard, executive editor.
To be considered for participation, companies or government entities had to employ at least 15 workers in Florida and be in business for at least one year.
