Last chance! Friday is the deadline to nominate your company as a Top Workplace in the Baltimore region.
If you love where you work, think your co-workers and your bosses are awesome, feel like you’re part of something great, why not let the world — and potential future coworkers and employees — know.
But don’t miss out, all nominations are due by Friday.
This will be the eighth year The Baltimore Sun Media Group has showcased the region's Top Workplaces in December, based on surveys of their employees by our partner, Energage, which has conducted Top Workplace surveys for dozens of news organizations across the country.
In 2017, The Sun recognized 125 companies as Top Workplaces in the Baltimore region, encompassing the city and Anne Arundel, Baltimore, Carroll, Harford and Howard counties.
Research shows that companies deemed top workplaces attract more highly qualified job applicants and experience reduced employee turnover.
Anyone can suggest a company — employees, executives, even customers.
It doesn't matter whether the workplace is for-profit or nonprofit, privately owned, publicly held, a school or a government entity. Companies must employ at least 35 people to qualify.
Employees of nominated companies that choose to participate will be asked to respond to a short survey this summer by Energage. The firm will use the surveys to rank the top companies.
Winners will be announced at an evening event in early December and featured in a special magazine published in The Sun.
Does your employer have what it takes to unseat last year’s winners?
The Sparks-based engineering firm KCI Technologies topped last year’s list for large workplaces; McDonogh School, an Owings Mills private institution that’s a perennial contender, ranked No. 1 among mid-sized workplaces; and Fortego, a Columbia-based cybersecurity firm, jumped to the top of the ultra-competitive list for small workplaces.
To nominate a company, go to baltimoresun.com/nominate or call 410-779-9337.
Nominations are due by Friday. Don’t delay. Act today.
