When Wingate University President Rhett Brown walks around other college campuses, he’s always reminded of home.
“We have an extraordinary campus service staff,” Brown said in The Charlotte Observer’s 2015 Top Workplaces report about Wingate’s attractive campus, which is visible to travelers along U.S. 74.
“There are always things we can always improve, but when I visit other campuses I am always reminded of how beautiful it is.”
The setting helps employees enjoy their jobs more – which helped Wingate make the Observer’s list of the top 50 workplaces in the Charlotte region.
If you enjoy your workplace, nominate your company to be included in our 2016 Top Workplaces program. The Observer will feature the region’s best employers in our special report, which will publish Sept. 25.
Workplaces must be in this eight-county region: Cabarrus, Gaston, Iredell, Lincoln, Mecklenburg and Union in North Carolina, and Lancaster and York in South Carolina.
To conduct the survey, we’re teaming with WorkplaceDynamics, a research firm that conducts surveys for more than 40 newspapers, and surveyed nearly 2.5 million employees at more than 6,000 organizations last year.
WorkplaceDynamics will contact nominated businesses and ask to reach out to employees with a short, 22-question survey. Companies will be surveyed through May.
The nomination deadline for our 2016 report is May 20.
You can nominate your workplace at http://www.charlotteobserver.com/nominate or by calling 704-954-8760.
