Register for the 2017 Best Places to Work rankings


    Think your company is one of the best places to work in Baton Rouge?

    Now is the time to register to participate in Business Report’s ranking of the 2017 Best Places to Work. There is no fee to participate in the awards program; deadline for registering is Friday, May 5.

    Companies on the list are known for recruiting and retaining the best and brightest in the workforce. Those that make the list will be highlighted in October in a special issue of Business Report and honored at a breakfast event. See last year’s honorees.

    Selection and rankings for the Best Places to Work are determined by the independent national firm Best Companies Group. For-profit or nonprofit publicly or privately held entities with a facility in the nine-parish Capital Region and a minimum of 15 full- or part-time employees working locally are eligible to participate. Contract employees are not included.

    Companies that choose to participate are assessed on two factors. The first is a questionnaire about company policies and practices, demographics and benefits. The second is a survey of randomly selected employees at each firm who respond anonymously to 78 statements on a five-point agreement scale, as well as a handful of open-ended questions and demographic inquiries.

    Best Companies Group analyzes and ranks participating firms on eight areas: leadership and planning; corporate culture and communications; role satisfaction; work environment; relationships with supervisors; training, development and resources; pay and benefits; and overall engagement.

    Best Places to Work in Baton Rouge is presented by Business Report, the Greater Baton Rouge Society for Human Resource Management and Best Companies Group.
