"We are extremely proud of our many associates and very much appreciate their commitment back to the Company. We have worked hard to create and foster a culture of personal and corporate accomplishment -- one without the other is not nearly as satisfying," said Daniel M. DuPree, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of PAC.
The AJC Top Workplaces are determined based solely on employee feedback. The employee survey is conducted by Energage LLC, a leading research firm on organizational health and employee engagement. The survey measures several aspects of workplace culture, such as overall happiness, management performance, workplace environment and career progression opportunities. The top 150 companies, grouped by size from small, medium and largest, were then ranked based on highest tabulated scores. There were more than 4,300 companies nominated or requested to participate in this year's competition.
