Prince George County Government has been named one of the top workplaces in the Richmond Region for a second year in a row in a report recently released by the Richmond Times-Dispatch.
Prince George is listed as one of 10 workplaces for midsized companies having 125-399 employees. Prince George County is the only local government entity listed among the top workplaces.
“We are very proud of this recognition,” stated County Administrator Percy C. Ashcraft. “To be listed among many of the top companies in the region is a real compliment to the leadership of our Board of Supervisors and work ethic of our employees.”
The Times-Dispatch teamed with Workplace Dynamics, a suburban Philadelphia-based company that has conducted workplace surveys for dozens of other newspapers across the country. Workplace Dynamics had employers participate in a comprehensive survey, including having employees completing a short survey about their workplaces. Employers who scored the highest locally – and met national benchmarks – made the list. Workplace Dynamics looked at many factors, including how engaged employees are, how employers encourage community involvement, and how businesses promote diversity.
The process was open to any employer – private, public, government and nonprofit – in the region that had at least 35 employees last fall when the surveying was conducted.
In addition to midsize companies, categories included mega-size, large-size and small-size. One overall winner in each category will be selected at the Sterling Workplace Awards program May 7 at the University of Richmond Modlin Center for the Arts.
