CHARLESTON, SC--(Marketwired - Aug 18, 2014) - Adam Witty's international publishing company, Advantage Media Group, (http://advantagefamily.com/), was recently named as one on a list of "Best Places to Work in South Carolina," the ninth annual compilation by SC Biz News, in partnership with the South Carolina Chamber of Commerce and Best Companies Group.
Advantage's ranking -- No. 17 out of 25 companies in the small/medium employer category this year -- is the result of a survey and awards program designed to identify, recognize and honor the best employers in the state of South Carolina, benefiting the state's economy, workforce and businesses.
"Perhaps the best thing that I can take credit for is hiring the right people," says Witty, CEO and founder of the company. "I am surrounded by talented and passionate people who know how to work well together. The end result is not only an amazing output; it's also fun."
To be considered for participation, 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 South Carolina
- Have a minimum of 15 employees working in South Carolina
- Be in business a minimum of one year
It's the second year the company has been recognized on the exclusive list. In 2013, Advantage placed No. 12 out of 20 companies in the small/medium employer category.
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.
