You still have time to celebrate your workplace and help it earn some well-deserved recognition.
The nomination deadline for Nevada Top Workplaces has been extended to Feb. 16. Anyone can nominate any organization, whether it is public, private, nonprofit, a school, or even a government agency. To nominate an employer, visit topworkplaces.com/nominate/Nevada or call 702-608-4829.
This is the fifth year the Las Vegas Review-Journal and Business Press will participate in the annual campaign.
Las Vegas Review-Journal Senior Vice President of Sales Mike LaBonia took over the executive position in October. Previously, he was the senior vice president of advertising and sales for the Hearst Newspaper Group. Also, he served as chief revenue officer for the Houston Chronicle and senior vice president of advertising and sales at the San Francisco Chronicle and Minneapolis Star Tribune.
He said he is bullish on the Las Vegas economy and the Nevada Top Workplaces is a perfect way to recognize the state’s successful companies that are “building their business the right way.”
“We had about 300 Nevada companies at our last awards event,” he said. “It was exciting to talk to the top business leaders in the state and hear what their thoughts are for the future. “Everyone is looking forward to the Super Bowl and other major sporting events and learning how this will translate into a stronger, more resilient local economy.
“Also, sports encourage us to build better, bigger and strong teams in the workforce. Las Vegas is shifting into a higher gear when it comes to business, and we are all excited to be part of that.”
Any organization with 35 or more employees in Nevada is eligible to earn Top Workplaces recognition.
To qualify for a Nevada Top Workplaces award, employees evaluate workplaces using a short 24-question survey that takes about five minutes to complete. Companies will be surveyed through March.
There is no cost to participate, and winners will earn the coveted gold Top Workplaces badge to tout their achievement in 2024.
Jeff Lawrence, director of advertising for the Las Vegas Review-Journal, is spearheading the Nevada Top Workplaces campaign. He has worked in several newspaper markets across the country helping to build local Top Workplaces efforts.
“We are looking forward to another banner year in 2024,” he said. “Las Vegas businesses are ready to make big things happen.”
The 2024 Nevada Top Workplaces event will be held this fall. Details will be announced later this year.
Energage, the Pennsylvania-based research partner for the project, conducts Top Workplaces surveys for media in 65 markets nationwide and surveyed more than 2 million employees at more than 8,000 organizations in the past year.
For 2023, a record 67 Nevada employers earned recognition as Top Workplaces.
