100 companies made the cut in Florida Trend’s 8th annual Best Companies To Work For In Florida rankings and for the 3rd consecutive year, CBIZ & MHM Tampa Bay has made the list.  The Tampa Bay practice ranked 16th in the “Best Large Companies” category, recognizing those companies with more than 250 employees in the State of Florida.

Florida Trend partnered with the Best Companies Group to survey firms with at least 15 employees in Florida. The first part of the survey involved a questionnaire about company policies, practices and demographics. The second part went to a randomly selected group of each firm’s employees, who responded to statements on a five-point agreement scale. The questions focused on eight themes: Leadership and planning; corporate culture and communications; role satisfaction; work environment; relationship with supervisor; training and development; pay and benefits; and overall engagement.
