The top-ranked firms on this year’s list of the Best Places to Work in Baton Rouge were unveiled this morning during an awards ceremony at the Crowne Plaza.

In the large companies category, L’Auberge Casino & Hotel; Baker, Donelson, Bearman, Caldwell & Berkowitz; GMFS; and Woman’s Hospital make up the top five.
To compile this year’s list, Business Report once again partnered with the Greater Baton Rouge Society for Human Resource Management to discover what makes a great workplace in our community, as well as provide participating employers insight into what their employees think.
Independent national firm Best Companies Group surveyed companies that chose to participate. For-profit companies and nonprofits, as well as publicly and privately held companies were all eligible to participate, so long as they have a facility in Baton Rouge and a minimum of 15 full- or part-time employees working in the nine-parish Capital Region. Contract employees are not included in employee counts or surveys.
