The program identifies public, private, nonprofit or government organizations that excel at organizational health and employee engagement that have at least 35 employees in the state.
The Las Vegas Business Press and Review-Journal have partnered with research firm Energage to bring back and expand the Top Workplaces campaign, which had a brief run in the Las Vegas area in 2013 and 2014 with the newspaper.
For the 2020 campaign, Energage surveyed more than 16,000 employees at the Nevada companies that signed up for the program. In the end, 40 employers were chosen as Top Workplaces based on the survey feedback. The survey process was free, and each company received a free copy of the results from Energage.
In September, Top Workplaces Nevada 2020 announced its list of winners in a virtual awards ceremony. The winning companies also were featured in a special section in the Las Vegas Review-Journal.
Plans for a 2021 awards ceremony and special publication will be announced soon, according to Tom Heaton, senior director of advertising for the Las Vegas Review-Journal.
“We are excited to build on the success of the 2020 Top Workplaces program. We’ve heard positive feedback from the 2020 winners, and hope to bring more companies into that elite group of Nevada companies in 2021,” he said.
Energage conducts a free assessment through a simple, scientifically sound and anonymous employee feedback survey. Those companies selected to participate in the program will be surveyed from November through January.
“We know the definition of the workplace is changing, and going into 2021, companies are working hard to meet the needs of their employees and their customers. More than ever, those efforts deserve recognition. That’s the goal of Top Workplaces: to give employees a voice to express why they love their jobs and how their organizations are making a positive difference in people’s lives,” said Bob Helbig, Energage’s Media partnerships director. “The pandemic did not prevent acknowledgement of what’s happening in the workplace. In fact, Top Workplaces went nationwide, with a new opportunity for companies with a national footprint to earn recognition through Top Workplaces USA. So now, companies can be recognized in their backyard as well as alongside other great employers across the U.S.”
Organizations throughout the country with 150 or more employees also can be nominated for the Top Workplaces USA awards. Results are based solely on anonymous employee feedback captured by a single, five-minute employee engagement survey, Helbig said. Nominations for Top Workplaces USA are now being accepted at topworkplaces.com. The winners will be announced in January.
