Love your job? Nominate your workplace!

Elections

Do you secretly love your job? Admire your bosses and adore your colleagues? Do you actually look forward to getting up in the morning?

Keep it to yourself no longer! The Baltimore Sun has extended the nomination deadline for the Top Workplaces competition to Aug. 19 and wants your ideas. Nearly 300 local companies have already been nominated.

Please nominate a company you think Sun readers should know about. Anyone can nominate a firm: a CEO, a summer intern, a customer. All kinds of companies are eligible: public and private, for-profit and nonprofit. Organizations must have at least 50 employees to qualify.

Employees of companies that elect to take part will be interviewed this summer by Workplace Dynamics LLC, which has conducted Top Workplace surveys for more than 25 major metropolitan newspapers and last year surveyed over 1 million employees nationwide. Employees will complete a quick, 25-item questionnaire.

Once the surveys are in they'll be used to compile the rankings, which will be published in a special magazine this December. An evening event for winners will be held Dec. 1.

To nominate a company, please go to baltimoresun.com/topworkplaces or call 410-779-9337.

Yours sincerely,

Hope Keller

Assistant business editor
