Winners of the small and medium sized company Best Place to Work awards for 2009 were announced today and both winners were repeaters. The small business winner was Badger Mining Company and the Medium business winner was Ultimate Software out of Florida, where I live. I will publish the full list and links to the other sites later this week.
Comments by both CEOs were worthy of notice. Badger Mining mentioned two key factors in their success several times: employees and flexibility. The CEO at Ultimate Software said that the measure of a company is shown more by how you treat the lowest paid employee, and not based upon how well you treat the highest!
