August 2011- Community Bank of Florida was recently named one of Florida’s Best Companies To Work For.
One-hundred companies were recognized in small, medium and large company categories. The rankings – the third annual statewide Best Companies list – appear in the August issue of Florida Trend Magazine and on FloridaTrend.com. The Best Companies To Work For in Florida program was created by Florida Trend and Best Companies Group and endorsed by the HR Florida State Council.
“Companies that retain the best employees with strong workplace programs typically stand out from the crowd by offering exceptional customer focus from a friendly, upbeat staff," says Florida Trend Publisher Andrew Corty. "It's our pleasure to recognize these great organizations and encourage others to join them in building Florida's competitive advantage."
To be considered for participation, companies or government entities had to employ at least 15 workers in Florida and be at least a year old. Organizations that chose to participate in the Best Companies To Work For in Florida process underwent a two-part survey process. The first part consisted of evaluating each company's workplace policies, practices, philosophy, systems and demographics. The second part consisted of an employee survey to measure employee satisfaction. The combined scores determined the top companies and the final ranking.
Community Bank employees received the exciting news at the monthly staff meeting and celebrated by taking group photos to commemorate the honor.
Aileen Diaz, VP and Director of Human Resources for Community Bank had this to say about the fantastic news, “Community Bank of Florida truly cares about its employees. Not only are education and training at the forefront of our employees’ development and career success, but our company also fosters a positive and engaging family – work life balance.”
