NEW PROVIDENCE, NJ - Lassus Wherley has been named one of the Best Places to Work in New Jersey by NJBIZ magazine for the fourth consecutive year.
The survey and award program identifies, recognizes and honors the top places of employment in New Jersey that benefit the state's economy, its work force and businesses. The Best Places to Work in New Jersey program is made up of 100 companies split into two groups: 62 small/medium-sized companies (15-249 employees) and 38 large-sized companies (more than 250 employees). Lassus Wherley, which is based in New Providence, has been named one of the Best Places to Work in New Jersey in the small/medium category.
To qualify, companies had to fulfill the following eligibility requirements:
- Have at least 15 employees in New Jersey;
- Be a for-profit, not-for-profit or government entity;
- Be a publicly or privately held business;
- Have a facility in New Jersey.
Companies from across the state entered the two-part process to determine the 100 Best Places to Work in New Jersey. Part one consisted of evaluating each nominated company's workplace policies, practices, philosophy, systems and demographics. This phase was worth approximately 25 percent of the total evaluation. Part two consisted of an employee survey to measure the employee experience. This phase was worth approximately 75 percent of the total evaluation. The combined scores determined the top companies and the final ranking.
The overall registration and survey process was managed by Best Companies Group (BCG). BCG also analyzed the data provided and used their expertise to determine the final rankings.
