Franchisor Paul Davis Restoration, Inc., based in Jacksonville, Florida, was recently named one of Florida’s “Best Companies To Work For.”

The annual “Best Companies To Work For In Florida” list is featured in the August issue of Florida Trend magazine. One hundred companies are ranked in small, medium, and large employer categories.

“We are honored to have been chosen for this prestigious list once again,” said Rich Wilson, president and CEO of Paul Davis Restoration. “I thank all of our franchisees who continuously strive to make Paul Davis Restoration a great company to work for. In fact, we recently implemented a national campaign seeking out the ‘best of the best’ new team members from all over the country. The campaign is called ‘The Best Job You’ve Probably Never Heard Of’ and one of our first candidates is from Florida. She has chosen an incredible career path at Paul Davis as Controller.” 

The “Best Companies To Work For In Florida” program was created by Florida Trend and Best Companies Group and is endorsed by the HR Florida State Council. Best Companies Group managed the registration, survey and analysis, and determined the final rankings. 

To participate, companies or government entities had to employ at least 15 workers in Florida and have been in operation at least one year. Companies that chose to participate underwent an evaluation of their workplace policies, practices, philosophy, systems, and demographics. The process also included a survey to measure employee satisfaction. The combined scores determined the top companies and the final ranking.
