2023 Best Places to Work RECAP

The Best Places to Work in Los Angeles 2023: Companies Where Angelenos Thrive on the Job

The 17th annual “Best Places to Work in Los Angeles” awards celebration this year was hosted by the Los Angeles Business Journal at the Biltmore Los Angeles on Wednesday, August 9th
from 6:00 PM to 8:30 PM.

As always, our annual list of 100 “Best Places to Work” companies comes from top local employers that participated in a detailed survey conducted by Best Companies Group. The survey ranks small, medium, and large companies on subjects such as leadership, corporate culture, communications, and much more. The event saluted companies that, according to the people who work for them, are the most successful in business and in nurturing their own.

The special live event was sponsored by Diamond Sponsors D.Law and Marsh McLennan Agency. Thanks also go out to the event’s contributing Gold sponsors: Carparts.com, Clayco + Lamar Johnson Collaborative, Dermavant, GST, Hirsch Pipe & Supply, Horizon Media, Montage Insurance Solutions, Morley Builders, Penta Building Group, Pinner Construction, ProLogis, Veritiv, Weaver
and West Monroe.

The Methodology Behind How We Did It:
How the List is Built

The Best Places to Work in Los Angeles is an annual celebration of elite employers who have proven that they know what it takes to create environments where people love to come to work. Identifying and recognizing these outstanding workplaces is a joint effort of The Los Angeles Business Journal and Best Companies Group.

The Best Places to Work in Los Angeles program was open to all publicly or privately held companies with at least 15 employees working in LA County. The workplace assessment and survey process was managed by Best Companies Group (BCG), Harrisburg, PA. BCG, an independent workplace excellence research firm, managed the registration process, conducted the surveys, evaluated the data, and ultimately chose the firms good enough to make the list. BCG manages 39 similar programs in other cities, states, and industries, as well as managing programs in Canada, Morocco, and the UK.

Part one of the assessment (three-quarters of each company’s score) involved a confidential 81-question Employee Engagement & Satisfaction Survey (EESS) which was used to evaluate the employees’ workplace experience and company culture. Part two of the assessment (one-quarter of each company’s score) consisted of The BCG Employer Questionnaire (EQ), used to collect information about each company’s benefits, policies, practices, and other general information. The two combined sets of data allowed the experts at BCG to conduct an in-depth analysis of the strengths and opportunities that exist in each company.

BCG’s workplace assessment experts determined who was good enough to make the list and where they ranked. While the survey process and evaluation were free, many participating companies opted to purchase the full BCG Employee Feedback Report which includes a comprehensive summary of the employee feedback. The report also included the employee written comments and the Los Angeles Benchmark Reports. This report will help each company understand their workforce better and equip them with the information to make their workplace even better.
