The Los Angeles Business Journal (LABJ) named BLITZ in its list for the 4th annual Best Places to Work Awards. This honor is unique in that it required complete teamwork–every single BLITiZen had to provide feedback about our 3rd Street Promenade home away from home.
It all started with the employers, who had to complete a comprehensive survey conducted by the Best Employers Group to capture all essential information. Next, the employees, including managers and senior executives, each answer an anonymous questionnaire regarding every facet of life at the company–leadership and planning, corporate culture and communications, benefits, work environment, hours and pacing, understanding for personal obligations, and every detail in-between.
After responses are returned to the LABJ, a “benchmark report” is compiled by averaging the responses of all 72 statements for the participating companies. This information enables each company to be accurately compared to others in order to determine their ranks both overall, as well as within their county.
Though the list of leading companies in each county was released the first week of July, the specific company rankings are unknown until August 4th, 2010 when LABJ hosts an award ceremony at the historic Millennium Biltmore Hotel in downtown LA. All honorees will be celebrated throughout the night of cocktails, dinner and socializing, which culminates with announcement of which company is truly the Best Place to Work in the City of Angels.
Whether LABJ names BLITZ #1 or not, we know that we have an awesome environment with awesome people that create awesome work. Congrats to all BLITiZens!
