PLANTATION, FL May 16, 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 Inc. Magazine’s Best Workplaces for 2019, the publication’s fourth annual ranking in the fast-growing private company sector.

“It is an honor to be recognized as a national best place to work by Inc. 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 engage, nurture and retain our most important assets, our employees, who are critical to our mission to help others succeed through education.”

The list is the result of a wide-ranging and comprehensive measurement of private American companies that have created exceptional workplaces through vibrant cultures, deep employee engagement, and stellar benefits. Collecting data on nearly 2,000 submissions, Inc. singled out 346 finalists.

Each nominated company took part in an employee survey, conducted by Omaha’s Quantum Workplace, on topics including trust, management effectiveness, perks, and confidence in the future. Inc. gathered, analyzed, and audited the data and then ranked all the employers using a composite score of survey results. This year, 74.2 percent of surveyed employees were engaged by their work—beating last year’s 72.1 percent.

All companies had to have a minimum of 10 employees and be U.S.-based, privately held, and independent—that is, not subsidiaries or divisions of other companies.

While researching the finalists, Inc. and Quantum saw distinct themes:

  • 99 percent provide health insurance—and some cover the cost.
  • 49 percent allow employees to bring pets to work.
  • 65 percent take employees to offsite retreats to relax and recharge.
  • 16 percent offer paid sabbaticals to reward length of service.

"With today's tight labor market, building a great corporate culture is more important than ever,” says Inc. magazine editor in chief James Ledbetter. “The companies on Inc.'s Best Workplaces list are setting an example that the whole country can learn from."
