The 60 top companies representing the 2016 Best Places to Work in South Carolina was announced last week by the South Carolina Chamber of Commerce, Best Companies Group, and SC Biz.
The Best Places to Work rankings has been identifying South Carolina’s most innovative and top employers for the past 11 years. The 2016 rankings are divided between small/medium employers (between 15 and 249 U.S. employees) and large employer winners (250-plus U.S. employees). Colonial Life revealed the rankings during an awards dinner on Aug. 4.
“Congratulations to the winning companies and organizations,” South Chamber President and CEO Ted Pitts said. “Every year this is one of the most coveted recognitions for South Carolina’s businesses. A company and organization’s success is dependent on its employees and these employers get it. These companies are truly the best of the best here in South Carolina.”
The top five small/medium employer winners were: Hire Dynamics, Scott and Company LLC, Palmetto Technology Group, Recruiting Solutions, and Southern Diversified Distributors. The top five large employer winners were Edward Jones, Total Quality Logistics, Hubbell Lighting Inc., Elliott Davis Decosimo and South Carolina Federal Credit Union.
Thirty-seven of the 60 companies are state Chamber members and a full list of winners can be found on the South Carolina Chamber of Commerce website.
