Love your job? Here’s how to nominate your employer as a Tampa Bay Top Workplace

Itís not easy to create an atmosphere where co-workers feel like family, are enthused about the job they do and relish the climate surrounding them.

Itís even more special when the employees are the ones touting the virtues of their workplace.

This is a special year for Tampa Bay Timesí Top 100 Workplaces, marking the 10th consecutive occasion weíre highlighting such crown jewels in our midst.

Since the first Top Workplaces was launched for 2010, more than a quarter million bay area employees have shared stories with us about why they enjoy their jobs, bragging about why their workplace stands out. Last year alone, nearly 36,000 employees from 186 organizations participated.

Now itís your turn.

The call for nominations is underway.

Hereís how the rankings are compiled:

Any employee can nominate an organization. The Timesí research partner, Energage, will contact nominated organizations and ask them to participate in a survey.

Energage ranks employers within their size category based solely on employee responses to the survey. The Times doesnít choose the winners; the employees of the companies do.

Any organization with 50 or more employees in the Tampa Bay area is eligible to participate ó be it public, private, non-profit or government.

As with previous years, winners will be divided into three categories based on the size of their workplace.

The deadline for nominations is Oct. 19.

A special section featuring the 2019 top workplaces will publish in the spring.

It is free to participate and every organization that does so will receive feedback on its workplace. An added bonus: look for a special event next year to both celebrate those being honored and to learn from them.

To make a nomination, go to www.tampabay.com/nominate or call (727) 498-5578.
