Oklahoma City, Okla. – okc.BIZ and Best Companies Group released the 2014 “Best Places to Work in Oklahoma” rankings yesterday, and InterWorks claimed the No. 6 spot in the Small/Medium category. The program honors exemplary companies within the state of Oklahoma that provide employees with an excellent work environment. This is the fourth straight year in which we’ve made the top 10 in the Small/Medium category.
How It Was Decided
To be considered for participation, companies must 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 Oklahoma
- Have at least 25 employees working in Oklahoma
- Be in business a minimum of one year
Organizations from across Oklahoma opted into a two-part survey process to determine the “Best Places to Work in Oklahoma.” The first part of the process evaluated each company’s workplace policies, practices, philosophy, systems and demographics. The second part consisted of an employee survey that measured employee experience. The combined scores determined the top organizations and the final rankings.
