Awards & Recognition

CityBusiness announces 2008 Best Places to Work

The sixth-annual event honors 50 companies, including 35 large and 15 small. Based on the U.S. Small Business Administration’s definition, large businesses have 50 or more employees.

The New Orleans chapter of the Human Resource Management Association helped CityBusiness select this year’s honorees. The 50 companies were chosen based on a survey of benefits offered, including average salary, health care, paid time off and employee programs, coupled with a brief employee telephone survey.

Honorees will be recognized at a noon luncheon Dec. 12 at the Sheraton hotel on Canal Street, where the top three Best Places to Work in each category will be announced. A special Best Places to Work publication profiling all honorees will run in the Dec. 15 issue of CityBusiness.
