USIT Named one of the "Best Places to Work in Virginia" for the third year in a row

USIT named among the Best Places to Work in Virginia for 2014. This is based on an independent survey of the company's employees conducted by Virginia Business Magazine and sponsored by the Virginia Chamber of Commerce and the Virginia Society of Human Resource Management.

The survey and award program was designed to identify, recognize and honor the best places of employment in Virginia, benefiting the state's economy, its work force and businesses. The Best Places to Work in Virginia list is made up of a total of 70 companies, split into three groups: small employers (fewer than 100 employees) mid-sized employers (100-250 employees), and large-sized employers (more than 250 employees).

To be considered for participation, companies had to fulfill the following eligibility requirements:

  • 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 Virginia;
  • Have at least 15 employees working in Virginia;
  • Must be in business a minimum of 1 year.

Organizations from across the state entered the two-part survey process to determine the Best Places to Work in Virginia. 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 organizations and the final ranking. Best Companies Group managed the overall registration, survey and analysis process and determined the final rankings.

The rankings of the annual Best Places to Work in Virginia will be unveiled and published in the February 2014 issue of Virginia Business.
