If your new year’s resolution is to give your workplace a boost in pride, we’ve got the perfect opportunity. But time is running out.

Integrated Media Publishing – publishers of Greenville Business Magazine, Charleston Business Magazine, and Columbia Business Monthly – is still on the lookout for terrific places to work in the state. Companies that make the Top Workplaces list based on the employee feedback will be featured in a special edition of our magazines.

“Top Workplaces is more than just recognition,” said Doug Claffey, CEO of Energage, the third-party research partner for the project. “Our research shows organizations that earn the award attract better talent, experience lower turnover, and are better equipped to deliver bottom-line results. Their leaders prioritize and carefully craft a healthy workplace culture that supports employee engagement.”

The deadline to nominate a company for Top Workplaces is Jan. 19. Just go to As long as you have 35 or more employees in the Palmetto State, you are eligible. Employers can be public, private, non-profit, schools or government institutions. For more information, you also can call (864) 501-9699.

Workplaces are evaluated by employees, who take a short, 24-question survey. Companies will be surveyed this month. Best of all, there is no cost to participate, no obligation to buy anything, and every surveyed organization will receive an overview of survey results for free.

Energage, formerly WorkplaceDynamics, is an Exton, Pa.-based research and consulting firm. It conducts Top Workplaces surveys for more than 40 major metro media partners nationwide. The company surveyed more than 2.5 million employees at nearly 7,000 organizations in 2017.
