Nominate your company for Tampa Bay's Top Workplaces

Just how good is your workplace? How does it stack up when it comes to providing a creative, supportive, energetic and inclusive environment?

Due to popular demand, we've extended the deadline for you to find out. The deadline to register for the St. Petersburg Times' Top Workplaces survey is now Dec. 3.

Last time, nearly 17,000 employees from more than 110 companies participated. The Top 60 workplaces were revealed in a 28-page special section in March.

Can your workplace dethrone the 2010 category winners — New York Life (large), American Strategic Insurance (medium) and St. Mary's Episcopal Day School (small)?

Here's how it works:

Any employee from the CEO on down to a part-time worker can nominate an organization. Our research partner, Workplace Dynamics, will contact nominated organizations and ask them to participate in a survey.

It is free for your organization to participate, and every organization that participates will receive feedback on its workplace. To make a nomination, go to www. tampabay .com/ topworkplaces or call (727) 498-5578.

To participate, your organization — public, private, government or nonprofit — must have at least 50 employees in the Tampa Bay area. So send in your nominations ASAP. The Times will publish the special section in the spring.

To view complete coverage of the 2010 winners, go to www. tampabay .com/ topworkplaces2010 .

  1. Related Group breaks ground on complex at old Tampa Tribune site

    Real Estate

    TAMPA — When Miami developer Jorge Perez first eyed a 4.2-acre tract on the west bank of the Hillsborough River two years ago, people asked him if he wouldn't prefer to build on the opposite side closer to the downtown core.

  2. Eat 3-course meals for $35 at these 100 restaurants for Orlando's Magical Dining Month

    Food & Dining

    In the early 1900s, hotels offered "table d'hote" or "prix fixe" menus as a form of loss leader. Hotels didn't necessarily make money on these lower-priced, multi-course meals, often served at communal tables, but they made up for it on the booze.

  4. Trigaux: As Florida seeks top 10 status as best business state, red flag rises on workforce


    In the eternal quest to appeal more to business than other states, Florida's managed to haul itself out of some pretty mediocre years. After scoring an impressive 8 among 50 states way back in 2007, Florida suffered horribly during and immediately after the recession. Its rank sank as low as No. 30 only four years ago, …

    Florida's trying to make strides in preparing its high school and college graduates for the rapidly changing skill sets of today's workforce. But the latest CNBC ranking of the best and worst states for business gave Florida poor marks for education, ranking No. 40 (tied with South Carolina for education) among the 50 states. Still, Florida ranked No. 12 overall in the best business states annual ranking. [Alan Berner/Seattle Times]
  5. For the first time in Florida, a white person is set to be executed for killing a black person.

    State Roundup

    GAINESVILLE — For the first time in state history, Florida is expecting to execute a white man Thursday for killing a black person — and it plans to do so with the help of a drug that has never been used before in any U.S. execution.
