LOS ANGELES – August 20, 2019 – Mission, a managed services and consulting company for Amazon Web Services (AWS), today announced it has been named one of the 2019 Best Places to Work in Los Angeles by the Los Angeles Business Journal.
This 13th annual Best Places to Work in Los Angeles survey and awards program, created by the Los Angeles Business Journal and research firm Best Companies Group, identifies and honors the 100 best employers in Los Angeles that are setting trends to redefine the employee experience while benefiting the county’s economy, workforce, and businesses.
Companies from across the county entered a two-part survey process to determine the Best Places to Work in Los Angeles. The first part, accounting for approximately 25% of the total evaluation, consisted of evaluating each nominated company’s workplace policies, practices, philosophy, systems and demographics. The second part, worth approximately 75% of the total evaluation, consisted of an employee survey to measure the employee experience. The combined scores determined the top companies and the final rankings. Best Companies Group managed the overall registration and survey process in Los Angeles, analyzed the data, and determined the final rankings.
