PARSIPPANY, N.J., March 13, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Transwestern today announced it has been named one of the Best Places to Work in New Jersey by NJBIZ and is the only commercial real estate services firm to be included on the 2014 list. The Best Places to Work program recognizes the 100 top places of employment in New Jersey that benefit the state's economy, work force and businesses.
"We are honored to be one of the 2014 Best Places to Work in New Jersey, especially considering our office has only been open for two years," said James Postell, managing director at Transwestern. "This recognition is due to our dedicated and hard-working New Jersey team members and their positive feedback on Transwestern's culture and the work environment we have created here. We believe this is truly a great place to work, and we're committed to continuously improving it to attract the top commercial real estate talent."
The 100 selected companies are broken into two categories – ones with 15 to 249 employees and ones with more than 250 employees. Transwestern was honored among 38 firms in the large company category. Transwestern's New York office also received the "Best Places to Work" distinction from Crain's New York Business in December 2013.
The first part of the selection process consists of evaluating each nominated company's workplace policies, practices, philosophy, systems and demographics. The second part consists of an employee survey to measure the employee experience. The combined scores determine the top companies and the final ranking.
The Best Companies Group (BCG) conducted the overall registration and survey. BCG also analyzed the data provided and used its expertise to determine the final rankings. Transwestern and other winning companies will be honored during the NJBIZ Best Places to Work awards dinner and ceremony on Thursday, May 1, 2014, at the Hilton East Brunswick.
