Ward and Smith, P.A. recently was named as one of the 2015 Best Employers in North Carolina. The list of the Best Employers in North Carolina was created by Business North Carolina in partnership with the Society for Human Resources Management – North Carolina State Council, and Best Companies Group. The statewide survey and awards program is designed to identify, recognize, and honor the best places of employment in North Carolina.
Companies from across the state entered the two-part survey process to determine the Best Employers in North Carolina. Part one involved the evaluation of each nominated company's workplace policies, practices, philosophy, systems, and demographics. This part of the process was worth approximately 25% of the total evaluation score. Part two consisted of an employee survey that measured the employee experience and was worth approximately 75% of the total evaluation score. The combined scores determined the top companies and the final rankings. Best Companies Group managed the overall registration and survey process in North Carolina, analyzed the data, and used its expertise to determine the final rankings.
Ward and Smith is honored by this distinction.
