We here at Fishbowl have always felt like we work at one of the best places in the cosmos. Now, at least, we have evidence we’re one of the best in Virginia!
Fishbowl was recently named as one of the 2014 Best Places to Work in Virginia. The annual list of the Best Places to Work in Virginia was created by Virginia Business and Best Companies Group. The award is designed to identify, recognize and honor the best places of employment in Virginia, benefiting the state’s economy, its workforce and businesses. The 2014 Best Places to Work in Virginia list is made up of 100 companies.
So how did we end up on the list? The first part evaluated each nominated company’s workplace policies, practices, philosophy, systems and demographics. This part of the process was worth approximately 25% of the total evaluation.
The second part consisted of an employee survey to measure the employee experience. This part of the process was worth approximately 75% of the total evaluation. That’s right: it was our own employees that articulated why Fishbowl is a great place to work, and man, they made their voices heard.
The combined scores determined the top companies and the final ranking. Best Companies Group managed the overall registration and survey process in Virginia and also analyzed the data and used their expertise to determine the final ranking. We’ll find out in February where we rank!
