More than 125 companies have signed up to participate in this year’s Nevada Top Workplaces survey process. In 2023, 100 companies took the challenge of having their employees respond to the survey conducted by Energage, a Pennsylvania-based employee survey firm.
“We continue to see record growth in Nevada Top Workplaces,” said Bob Helbig, media partnerships director at Energage. “Employers across the state are eager to show their commitment to building a people-first culture. These organizations stand apart from their competitors as places where employees want to work and want to remain for the long haul. The Top Workplaces awards provide third-party validation of these terrific employers.”
This is the fifth year the Las Vegas Review-Journal and Business Press will participate in the annual campaign.
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.
Last year, there were 1,956 organizations invited to participate in the program. Out of that, 100 were surveyed. The number of employee survey responses was 17,143.
The 24-question survey collects feedback from those who know organizations the best: the people who work there, Helbig said. Employee feedback is the sole basis for determining which employers make the Top Workplaces list.
“What we think makes this award meaningful is it’s based entirely on employee survey feedback,” Helbig said.
In October about 300 Nevada companies attended the awards ceremony. For 2023, a record 67 Nevada employers earned recognition as Top Workplaces.
The keynote speaker was Qiava Martinez, senior vice president, chief of sales for the Las Vegas Raiders. Carrie Roper, Las Vegas-Review Journal’s director of digital broadcast, hosted the event. John Di Domenico, actor, writer and comedian/impersonator, was the awards presenter.
Roper moderated a speakers panel on how the sports industry is affecting Las Vegas. Panelists include Jeremy Aguero, principal analyst with Applied Analysis; Sam Joffray, president and CEO of the Super Bowl LVIII Host Committee; and Alise Porto, senior vice president of sustainability for Switch.
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.
