PLANTATION, FL July 31, 2019 – New Horizons Computer Learning Centers of South Florida, the world’s leading Information Technology educator for corporations and veterans, has been named one of Florida Trend’s Best Companies to Work for in Florida for 2019, landing the No. 4 spot for Best Midsized Companies.

“It is an honor to be recognized as a best place to work by Florida Trend Magazine,” said Krista Wade, General Manager of New Horizons Computer Learning Centers of South Florida. “We hold these awards in the highest regard because they are a direct reflection of our efforts to nurture our employees. Without them, we would not be able to achieve our mission to help others succeed through education. This is a true reward for all the hard work our team puts in to make New Horizons a truly special place to work.”

Florida Trend magazine teamed up with the Best Companies Group of Harrisburg, Pa. to rank the state's top 100 employers. Collecting data on each company’s policies and practices, Florida Trend divided the firms into three categories based on the number of people employed in Florida. The Top 100 list consists of 28 large companies, 32 midsized companies and 40 small companies.

Each nominated company took part in an anonymous employee survey. The first part of the survey involved a questionnaire about company policies, practices, and demographics. The second part went to a randomly selected group of each firm’s employees, who responded anonymously to 72 statements on a five-point agreement scale, seven demographic questions, and answered two open-ended questions.

The survey questions focused on eight themes: leadership and planning; corporate culture and communications; role satisfaction; work environment; relationship with supervisor; training and development; pay and benefits; and overall engagement.
