Top Workplace Nevada winners will celebrate Sept. 29 at a live in-person luncheon awards ceremony at the new Area15 Portal, an immersive entertainment complex on South Rancho Drive, off the Las Vegas Strip.
“It’s going to be a lot of fun,” said Tom Heaton, senior director of advertising for the Las Vegas Review-Journal. “I can’t think of a better place to honor the 2021 Top Workplaces Nevada winners.”
This year, 42 winners were chosen. The specific rankings, No. 1 spots for large, midsize and small companies and special awards will be announced at the event. This will mark the first live event for Top Workplaces Nevada. Last fall, because of the global pandemic the 2020 winners were announced on a virtual event.
This year’s list increased by two and included 22 newcomers, including Station Casinos and Wynn Las Vegas. The winners have been published in alphabetic order.
“Las Vegas businesses have always been able to pivot and adapt to new circumstances,” Heaton said. “We all have a lot to be proud of after a year that continued to bring great challenges during the global pandemic,” Heaton said. “This event will be a wonderful way to congratulate our winners and celebrate the resiliency and innovation of our Nevada businesses. They deserve to be recognized.”
The winners were selected after extensive employee surveys of each company. Research firm Pennsylvania-based Energage completed the free surveys in April. Each company received a free copy of the results. The company surveyed 64 statewide businesses, which employ 23,205 people. Nearly all, or 23,073, employees received surveys, and 12,478 responded.
The Las Vegas Business Press and Las Vegas Review-Journal partnered with 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.
“During these challenging times, we are so proud to recognize companies that are going above and beyond to meet the needs of their employees and their customers,” said Bob Helbig, media partnerships director for Energage.
Last year, Helix Electric won in the category of 500 or more employees. Encompass Health — Home Health Hospice won in the category of 150 to 499. Steelhead Productions won in the category of fewer than 150 employees.
