Richmond (Dec. 12, 2016) — The Virginia Society of Certified Public Accountants (VSCPA) was recently named as one of the 2017 Best Places to Work in Virginia. The annual list of the Best Places to Work in Virginia was created by Virginia Business and Best Companies Group.
This statewide survey and awards program is designed to identify, recognize and honor the best places of employment in Virginia, benefiting the state's economy, workforce and businesses. The 2017 Best Places to Work in Virginia list is made up of 100 companies.
“We are honored again to be named a Best Place to Work in Virginia. The knowledge and talent of the staff are key to so many of our successes,” VSCPA President & CEO Stephanie Peters, CAE, said. “Our staff truly cares about the CPA profession and is dedicated to promoting and supporting our members. Providing a competitive work environment is critical to meeting our mission.”
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
- Be in business a minimum of one 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 percent 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 percent of the total evaluation. The combined scores determined the top companies and the final ranking. Best Companies Group managed the overall registration and survey process in Virginia and also analyzed the data and used their expertise to determine the final ranking.
The final rankings will be announced at an awards luncheon on Feb. 2, 2017, at the Williamsburg Lodge in Williamsburg.
