This year, 56 companies were chosen by their employees as Nevada Top Workplaces. That’s 14 more companies than last year, a record number for this campaign.
Energage, a Philadelphia-based research company, conducted an extensive employee survey process on 91 companies out of the 1,532, which were invited to participate in the process. That also was a record high for Nevada Top Workplaces. Energage calculated the winners based solely on employee feedback. Each participating company received a free overview of its survey results. The surveyed companies employ more than 28,600 Nevada workers.
This year, there are 29 newcomers to the winners list. Some include Clark County Credit Union, DraftKings Inc. and YMCA of Southern Nevada.
Top Workplaces Nevada has four divisions: large, 500 or more employees; midsize, 150-499 employees; and small, 149 or fewer employees in the region.
