Arkansas Business Announces 'Best Places to Work' Honorees, Live Event

Arkansas Business will honor 50 companies designated among this year's "Best Places to Work" during a live event in September at the DoubleTree Little Rock.

The annual event is tied to the "Best Places to Work" survey, which companies can use to determine employee perceptions of their organization and leadership. 

The live, movie-themed event, presented by Consolidated Admin Services of Cabot, is scheduled for 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Sept. 29. The ceremony, hosted by Arkansas Business Publisher Mitch Bettis and Editor Lance Turner, will honor each of this year's finalists and winners in front of audiences that are live in studio and joining through an interactive online broadcast. They'll also reveal this year's Benchmark Award recipient for general workplace excellence.

Businesses use Arkansas Business' annual "Best Places to Work" survey to ask employees for feedback on company leadership and planning; corporate culture and communication; employee relationships to supervisors; and pay and benefits. 

Employees complete the survey anonymously, and employers can analyze the results by specific topics and demographics, including age, sex, ethnicity, status, job role and department. Employers pay a fee to take part in the survey, which is administered by the Best Companies Group

"Best Companies Group compiles a detailed view of aggregated responses and a full transcript of employee comments to open-ended questions," said Bettis, who has used the survey since 2014. "Management can use the data to benchmark responses coming from other participating companies and, more importantly, to benchmark progress within your company year-to-year."
