The Carolinas Region Rises On Best Employers List!

Wharton-Smith was recently named as one of the 2019 Best Employers in North Carolina. This program was created by Business North Carolina, NC SHRM and Best Companies Group.

This survey and awards program was designed to identify, recognize, and honor the best employers in North Carolina, benefiting the economy, workforce, and businesses in the state of North Carolina. Wharton-Smith placed No. 2 on the list in the large-company category.

Companies from North Carolina entered the two-part survey process to determine the 2019 Best Employers in North 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 Awards Gala Honoring Excellence was held May 16 at the Durham Convention Center where Division Manager Sean Stanford and his wife Jennifer attended the “red-carpet” announcement honoring the Carolinas Region.

“We are so proud of this award. Best Companies Group polled our team members and leadership on dozens of topics, from recruiting practices to recognition programs, and we are now No. 2 on the Best Employers list,” said Sean.

The full list is published in the June issue of Business North Carolina. For more information on the Best Employers in North Carolina program, visit
