Lash Group Named a “Best Place to Work SC” in 2016
As associates came in to work that morning, members of the Lash Group’s Executive Lead Team greeted them and shared a very exciting announcement: the Fort Mill location had just been named a “Best Place to Work” in their new state of South Carolina!
The “Best Places to Work” program was designed to identify, recognize, and honor the best employers in the state of South Carolina, benefiting the state's economy, workforce, and businesses. Created eleven years ago by SCBiz News in partnership with the South Carolina Chamber of Commerce and Best Companies Group, the list is made up of 60 companies that meet a specific list of requirements. Companies must:
- Be a for-profit or not-for-profit business or government entity
- Be a publicly or privately held business
- Have a facility in the state of South Carolina
- Have a minimum of 15 employees working in the state of South Carolina
- Be in business a minimum of 1 year
Companies from across the state entered the two-part survey process to determine the “Best Places to Work in South Carolina.” The first part consisted of evaluating each nominated company's workplace policies, practices, philosophy, systems, and demographics. The second part consisted of an employee survey to measure the employee experience. The combined scores determined the top companies and the final ranking. Best Companies Group managed the overall registration and survey process, analyzed the data, and determined the final rankings. The ranked companies will be recognized at a reception and dinner, presented by Colonial Life, on August 4, 2016, and the rankings will be published in the August 2016 issue of SCBiz.
“There are countless reasons why I love working at Lash Group, but my number one reason will always be our incredibly talented team of associates. Their dedication to working with purpose to improve patients’ lives is inspiring – it’s one of the many things that make Lash Group an incredible place to work,” says Tracy Foster, Lash Group’s president. “I’m proud beyond measure of this recognition and how our entire organization has supported the recent move of our headquarters to Fort Mill! This is truly an honor for our company and recognition of what makes us special – no matter the office location: a culture that is collaborative, innovative, and authentic, and a team that is driven to provide the best support to our customers.”For more information on the Best Places to Work in South Carolina program, visit www.BestPlacesToWorkSC.com.
