Top Workplaces Nomination Deadline Extended

The awards program that honors quality workplace culture is underway for the seventh year. Any organization with 35 or more employees in South Carolina is eligible to compete for 2023 Top Workplaces recognition. 

Recruiting and retaining talent is at the heart of the South Carolina Top Workplaces program. Workplaces are evaluated by employees using a short 24-question survey that takes about 5 minutes to complete. Companies in South Carolina will be surveyed from October to January. 

There is no fee to participate in the survey, and winners will earn the coveted gold Top Workplaces badge to tout their achievement. The 2023 campaign results will be published in May, and winners will be invited to a celebration event.

Energage, the Pennsylvania-based survey partner for the project, conducts Top Workplaces surveys for media in 61 markets nationwide and surveyed more than 2 million employees at more than 8,000 organizations in the past year.

The nomination deadline has been extended to Dec. 2. Anyone can nominate any organization, whether it is public, private, nonprofit, a school, or even a government agency. To nominate an employer, just go to or call 864-501-9699.

For 2022, 67 companies were featured as Top Workplaces in Greenville Business Magazine, Columbia Business Monthly, and Charleston Business Magazine. More than 16,000 employees were invited to survey, and 9,605 responded.
