O'Neal Named to 2015 List of Best Places to Work in South Carolina

For the fourth year in a row, O'Neal was named as one of the Best Places to Work in South Carolina.  The tenth annual program was created by SC Biz News in partnership with the South Carolina Chamber of Commerce and Best Companies Group.

"We are excited to be named one of the Best Firms to Work For in South Carolina.  As an employee-owned firm, O'Neal's employees have the final word when it comes to the work environment and our overall success," said O'Neal President and CEO Kevin Bean.  "This survey process provides an avenue in which we can assess our strengths and identify areas to improve and build upon."

This survey and awards program was designed to identify, recognize, and honor the best employers in the state of South Carolina, benefiting the state's economy, workforce, and businesses.  The list is made up of 50 companies.  

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

  • Be a for-profit or not-for-profit business or government entity
  • Be a publicly or privately held business
  • Have a facility in the state of South Carolina
  • Have a minimum of 15 employees working in the state of South Carolina
  • Be in business a minimum of 1 year

Companies from across the state entered the two-part survey process to determine the Best Places to Work in South Carolina.  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, analyzed the data, and determined the final rankings.

The ranked companies were recognized at a reception and dinner, presented by Colonial Life, on August 6, 2015, and the rankings will be published in the August 2015 issue of SCBIZ magazine.  O'Neal ranked #23 on this year's list.
