San Diego, California: The results are in and Best Places to Work San Diego has named Swinerton this year’s #1 Mega Employer!

This is the fifth consecutive year Swinerton has been named a top San Diego employer, with 2016 being the first year the company was recognized in the program’s Mega Employer category.

The annual list of the Best Places to work in San Diego was created by the San Diego Business Journal, Best Companies Group, and sponsor Kaiser Permanente. This survey and awards program was designed to identify, recognize, and honor the best employers in San Diego, benefiting the county’s economy, workforce, and businesses. The list is made up of 100 companies split into four categories: 42 small-sized companies (15-49 U.S. employees), 28 medium-sized companies (50-249 U.S. employees), 18 large-sized companies (250-1,999 U.S. employees), and 12 mega-sized companies (2,000 or more U.S. employees).

To be considered for participation, companies had to fulfill the following
eligibility requirements:

-Be a for-profit, not-for-profit business or government entity
-Be a publicly or privately held business
-Have a facility in San Diego County
-Have at least 15 employees in San Diego County
-Be in business a minimum of one year

Companies from across the county entered the two-part survey process to determine the Best Places to Work in San Diego. The first part consisted of evaluating each nominated company's workplace policies, practices, philosophy, systems, and demographics. The second part consisted of an employee survey to measure the employee experience. The combined scores determined the top companies and the final ranking. Best Companies Group managed the overall registration and survey process in San Diego, analyzed the data, and determined the final rankings.

A special issue of the San Diego Business Journal that profiles the companies selected as the Best Places to Work in San Diego will be published on August 22.
