About the Company:
General Best Places to Work Information
Entering its ninth year in 2010, the "Best Places To Work" awards program recognizes top Southern Nevada employers for innovative human resource practices and programs.
This awards program can promote and distinguish your company as an employer of choice in our community. As a nominee, your company receives a listing in the "Best Places To Work" publication. Winners receive a prestigious award suitable for display, collateral material for recruiting and advertising.
In addition to nominating your company for this prestigious award, you have the opportunity to be a sponsor. Sponsorship is an excellent way to reach key decision-makers for hundreds of local businesses.
To be considered for an award, employees and their employers must follow a two-step process: First, an employee nominates their company as a Best Place to Work. Second, the employer (typically the HR Director and/or President) fills out the awards entry form which describes the company's work environment, employee benefits and other factors which lead the company to be one of the "Best Places to Work". A panel of judges anonymously judge the applications and award 1st, 2nd and 3rd place for each category: Small, Medium, Large
