The SHARE Foundation was recently recognized as one of the Best Places to Work in Arkansas. The program, currently in its eighth year, was created by Arkansas Business and Best Companies Group.
The survey and awards program was designed to identify, recognize and honor the best employers in Arkansas, that benefit the state’s economy, workforce and businesses. The list is made up of 50 companies.
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 Arkansas;
Have at least 15 employees in Arkansas;
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 Arkansas.
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 rankings.
Best Companies Group managed the overall registration and survey process in Arkansas, analyzed the data and determined the final rankings.
“We are so excited to receive this acknowledgement again this year,” says Dr. Brian Jones, SHARE Foundation president and CEO. “Last year was a challenging year for SHARE with the pandemic. Our employees rallied together and stood fast with us during a very bumpy ride. I am grateful to all of our amazing employees and to the oversight and support given by the SHARE Board of Directors.”
All of the winners will be celebrated and category winners including the Benchmark Award winner will be revealed at a hybrid event with in-person and virtual package options on September 29 at the DoubleTree Hotel Little Rock, and then published in a special supplement of Arkansas Business on October 4.
