For the third year in a row, the Southwest Florida Water Management District was recognized by the Pasco-Hernando Jobs and Education Partnership Regional Board, Inc. as one of the best places to work in the area.
The District was named the best place to work in Hernando County among employers with more than 125 employees. One winner was chosen in each county for each size category. The categories are 1-50 employees, 51-125 employees and more than 125 employees. Employers were judged on diversity, turnover, compensation as well as benefits and growth percentages.
During an awards ceremony last week, the winners were presented with a trophy and banner to display at their work place.
The purpose of the award program is to provide vital information to local companies about the practices used to attract and retain employees. Employers that participated in the nomination process will receive a report providing the results of the survey and how they compare to other companies.
