BlueGrace Logistics Named one of Top Workplaces in Tampa Bay
BlueGrace Logistics was recently named one of Tampa Bay’s Top Workplaces 2016 by the Tampa Bay Times. BlueGrace’s employees nominated us and were surveyed about several topics including work environment, practices, and policies that make our company a top place to work. This is the second time that BlueGrace has won the coveted employee award and we look forward to many more!
In the Tampa Bay region, nearly 180 leading employers were nominated by their employees. To be considered for participation, companies or government entities had to employ at least 50 workers in Florida and be at least one year old.
The Top Workplaces 2016 in Tampa Bay program was created by the Tampa Bay Times and WorkplaceDynamics. The program continues to be a good barometer of Tampa Bay companies and helps promote those companies to both potential employees and to the community. The companies were ranked based on leadership, compensation and training, workplace flexibility, and diversity. The rankings were published on TampaBay.com, in the April 10, 2016 edition of the Tampa Bay Times and on April 11, 2016 in tbt*.
Voted For By Employees
“The reports are so enriching because the stories come directly from the employees, which gives the readers a pure behind-the-scenes look into these companies,” said Chris Tisch, Times business editor. “Tampa Bay companies are truly interested in creating productive work environments and engaging employees.”
