The Virginia Society of CPAs (VSCPA), the leading professional association dedicated to enhancing the success of CPAs, has been ranked the No. 5 Best Place to Work in Virginia in the small employer category by Virginia Business magazine and Best Companies Group.
This survey and award program is designed to identify, recognize and honor the best places of employment in Virginia, benefiting the commonwealth's economy, its work force and businesses. The Best Places to Work in Virginia list is made up of a total of 50 companies, split into three groups: 14 small employers (fewer than 100 employees); 16 mid-sized employers (100–250 employees); and 20 large-sized employers (more than 250 employees).
“This is wonderful news,” VSCPA President & CEO Stephanie R. Peters, CAE, said. “Our staff makes our office such a positive place. It’s so important to have a workplace that you enjoy going to day after day, and each person here makes the VSCPA such a great place for me. We hope our members feel great pride about this recognition.”
Organizations from across the state entered the two-part survey process to determine the Best Places to Work in Virginia. The first part consisted of evaluating each nominated company's workplace policies, practices, philosophy, systems and demographics. The second part consisted of an employee survey to measure the employee experience. The combined scores determined the top organizations and the final ranking. Best Companies Group managed the overall registration, survey and analysis process and determined the final rankings.
The full ranking was published in the February 2011 issue of Virginia Business. For more information on the Best Places to Work in Virginia program, visit http://www.bestplacestoworkva.com/.
