Lexington, Ky., August 13, 2013Gray Southeast Regional Office was recently ranked No. 1 for the 2013 “Best Companies to Work for in Alabama” in the large division category (over 250 team members in the U.S.).

This fourth annual program, managed by Best Companies Group, is designed to identify, recognize and honor the best employers in Alabama. The list ranks the top 20 companies.

“It is truly an honor to be considered the best place to work in Alabama,” said Brian Jones, regional manager of Gray’s Southeast Office. “One of Gray’s core values is to treat others the way we want to be treated, and I think upholding this value has contributed greatly to a positive and productive working environment for our employees.”

Companies from across the state submitted a two-part survey to determine the “best” companies to work for in Alabama. The first part evaluated the company's workplace policies, practices, philosophy, systems and demographics. The second part measured the employee experience. The combined scores determined the top companies and the final rankings. Best Companies Group, a company that works with national and local partners to establish and manage “Best Places to Work,” “Best Companies” and “Best Employers” programs, managed the overall registration and survey process in Alabama, analyzed the data, and determined the final rankings.
