We have received a healthy number of entries for our 2020 Top 100 Workplaces survey. But we want to make sure our annual ranking represents the best of the best.

So we have extended the deadline until Nov. 15 to nominate your employer.

The Tampa Bay Times has done this survey for 10 years. As we start a new decade, we want to ensure our list represents the true diversity of the Tampa Bay job market. We build this effort around the people who know their companies and other organizations best: their employees. Last year we surveyed more than 40,000 employees from 191 organizations that agreed to participate.

Here’s how it works:

  • You submit the name of your employer, if you feel the company or organization is worthy of consideration. The Times’ research partner, Energage, will reach out to nominated organizations to see if they are willing to participate.
  • Any organization that has at least 50 employees in the Tampa Bay area is eligible. They can be public, private, non-profit or a government agency.
  • Energage will distribute to employees a 24-question confidential survey to evaluate the nominees. It will then rank those nominees, grouping them by size.
  • The results will be publicized in a special section of the Times that will appear in print and online in the spring. We’ll also hold a special event to celebrate the honorees.

To make a nomination, go to or call (727) 498–5578.
