(Tampa, FL) — Taylor Morrison was recently named one of Tampa Bay’s Top Workplaces 2017 by the Tampa Bay Times. Taylor Morrison’s employees nominated the company and were surveyed about several topics, including practices and policies that make companies the top places to work.
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 a year old. The Top Workplaces 2017 in Tampa Bay program was created by the Tampa Bay Times and WorkplaceDynamics.
The companies were ranked based on leadership, compensation and training, workplace flexibility, and diversity. The rankings were published on TampaBay.com and were featured in the April 9 edition of the Tampa Bay Times and on April 10 in tbt*.
“These reports are illuminating because they delve into what makes employees both happy and productive,” said Times Business Editor Jeff Harrington. “It’s no surprise to find a correlation between a positive, supportive workplace and a successful business. In fact, many of the companies that scored highest in employee satisfaction are among the fastest-growing in Tampa Bay.”
“I am extremely proud and honored that Taylor Morrison is being recognized with this designation,” said Taylor Morrison’s Tampa Division President, Joe Fontana. “We have an amazing team of employees who are passionate about what they do. In return, we work hard to provide a work environment that is challenging yet fulfilling. Our employees know they make a difference in the lives of others and thrive in a driven and team-based culture. They never give up, no matter what the situation, and always care about getting the best possible outcome. Most importantly, we have a team who puts our customers first and understands that our customers are people who are investing their dreams in our homes. This designation is a true honor and the result of our amazing team and their hard work, passion and efforts.”
