NCEES named one of the Best Places to Work in South Carolina

NCEES was recently named one of the Best Places to Work in South Carolina. SC Biz News created this 16th annual program in partnership with the South Carolina Chamber of Commerce and Best Companies Group. This survey-and-awards program was designed to identify, recognize, and honor the best employers in the state of South Carolina, benefiting the state’s economy, workforce, and businesses. The list is made up of 81 total companies.

NCEES is a national nonprofit organization headquartered in Greenville, South Carolina. Since its founding in 1920, the organization has been committed to advancing licensure for engineers and surveyors in order to safeguard the health, safety, and welfare of the public throughout the United States.

“NCEES is honored to be named one of the best places to work in South Carolina,” said NCEES CEO David Cox. “We value our employees and recognize the impact their day-to-day work has in protecting the health, safety, and welfare of the public. Providing them with the best possible climate for development, health, and wellness ultimately benefits us all.”

To be considered for participation in the Best Places to Work in South Carolina, companies had to fulfill the following eligibility requirements:

  • Be a for-profit or not-for-profit business or government entity;
  • Be a publicly or privately held business;
  • Have a facility in the state of South Carolina;
  • Have a minimum of 15 employees working in the state of South Carolina; and
  • Be in business a minimum of 1 year.

Companies from across the state entered the two-part survey process to determine the Best Places to Work in South Carolina. The first part consisted of evaluating each nominated company’s workplace policies, practices, philosophy, systems, and demographics. The second part consisted of an employee survey to measure the employee experience. The combined scores determined the top companies and the final ranking. Best Companies Group managed the overall registration and survey process, analyzed the data, and determined the final rankings.

The ranked companies will be recognized at an in-person awards ceremony on August 5, 2021, at the Columbia Convention Center. The rankings will be published in the August 2021 issue of SCBIZ magazine. For more information on the Best Places to Work in South Carolina program, visit www.BestPlacesToWorkSC.com.
