This year was unprecedented in the number of organizations identified and awarded as Best Places to Work in Oklahoma. Best Companies Group (BCG) identified a total of 35 companies.
Companies are required to have 25 employees working in Oklahoma to be considered for eligibility. Small to medium businesses must have less than 250 employees, and large businesses must have over 250. Numerous businesses apply each year to BCG, located in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, which independently surveys, compiles and analyzes a comprehensive list of information. From there, a list of finalists is created and BCG selects winners. BCG then notifies the winners and partners with Tierra Media Group to promote the recipients for this special publication, Best Places to Work in Oklahoma; okc.BIZ (the program sponsor); and Oklahoma Gazette.
“We had many returning and some new businesses. We congratulate all of you! Some commonalities of the companies this year and throughout the many of the years we’ve been presenting Best Places to Work in Oklahoma are promotion of health and wellness programs, green practices, community service and fun,” said okc.BIZ Publisher Bill Bleakley.
