Last year, Red Ventures was named the Charlotte region’s Top Workplace for 2015 in the large-company category.

Employees of the Indian Land, S.C.-based marketing and sales company touted their workplace for its team-building trips, flexible vacation policy and competitive environment.

Think your company should be recognized this year? There’s still time to vote for your workplace. The deadline is May 20. Nominate your company by web or phone to be included in the Charlotte Observer’s 2016 Top Workplaces program.

Any organization with 35 or more employees in the Charlotte metro area is eligible to participate. Nominations can come from public, private, nonprofit or government workplaces. The Observer will feature the region’s best employers in our special report, which will publish Sept. 25.

Workplaces must be located 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.
