Tampa Bay Times Top Workplaces 2013 open for nominations

If you work for a great company, here's your chance to show it off.

The Tampa Bay Times is accepting nominations for its Top Workplaces 2013 special section.

Can your workplace make the Top 75 list? Maybe even dethrone last year's top scorers — Capital One (large), Residence at Timber Pines (midsize) or St. Mary's Episcopal Day School (small)?

Last year almost 23,000 workers from more than 130 companies took the survey. The Times' research partner, Workplace Dynamics, ranks employers within their size category based solely on the employee responses to the survey statements. The Times doesn't choose the winners; the employees of the companies do.

Here are the details:

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

Any organization — public, private, government or nonprofit — with at least 50 employees in the Tampa Bay area can participate. The deadline to nominate your company is Oct. 26. The special section will publish in the spring.

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/nominate or call (727) 498-5578.

    To Waste Management, the nation's largest handler of garbage, the liquid that winds up at the bottom of a landfill is called "leachate," and it can safely be disposed of in a well that's 4,200 feet deep.
