Announcing the 2023 Best Places to Work

Lance Traweek, Editor//September 20, 2023

Eighty-two honorees have qualified for the 21st annual Best Places to Work program.


To participate in Best Places to Work, companies must submit nomination forms disclosing workforce data such as salaries, benefits, retention levels and employee advancement. The next part of the process involves an anonymous survey of company employees to measure workplace culture.


Honorees were selected in the Large Company category (250 or more U.S. employees), the Medium Company category (50–249 U.S. employees) and the Small Company category (10–49 U.S. employees).


All honorees will be featured in a special publication inserted into the Dec. 15 issue of CityBusiness which also will feature the top three large, medium and small companies.


Best Companies Group, a subsidiary of BridgeTower Media (owner of New Orleans CityBusiness), curated the data and made the selections.


“Best Companies Group, an expert in employee engagement research, surveyed and analyzed numerous companies to find the Best Places to Work in New Orleans,” said Jaime Zepeda, executive vice president of Best Companies Group + COLOR Magazine. “This program recognizes companies that have excelled in creating quality workplaces for employees.”


To be eligible, companies must have a facility in the New Orleans area, have been in business for at least one year, and have a minimum of 15 employees working in the New Orleans area. Employees from nominated companies are surveyed anonymously about their workplace environment through the employee survey, and companies are audited for their workplace policies, practices, and benefits through the Employer Questionnaire. These two data points are compiled into a final rank to determine the winners.


The criteria that must be met in order to place on the list are the following: you must meet or exceed the minimum response rate required on the employee survey in order for your data to be analyzed. Your overall score is a combination of the employee survey and the Employer Questionnaire. Best Companies Group then uses that master score to recognize and rank the winning organizations.
