CarolinaPower, a leading employee-owned electrical contractor serving industrial, commercial, healthcare and federal market sectors in the two-state Carolinas region, has been named one of the Best Places to Work in South Carolina – a prestigious list of 75 companies announced last week. CarolinaPower has four offices in South Carolina and a field force that exceeds 100 crew members. Now in its thirteenth year, the Best Places to Work in South Carolina survey-and-awards program was designed to identify, recognize, and honor the best employers in the state, benefiting the state’s economy, workforce, and businesses. The program was created by SC Biz News in partnership with the South Carolina Chamber of Commerce and Best Companies Group. “Many of us who have been with the company for a long time already knew that CarolinaPower is one of the best places to work; however, receiving this public recognition adds new meaning. From a leadership perspective, this honor clearly shows the dedication of our employees to the company, our clients and our industry,” said CarolinaPower Vice President and General Manager Chris Moore. 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 2, 2018, and the rankings will be published in the August 2018 issue of SCBIZ magazine.
