Best Place to Work In Jacksonville? Vast Bridges Named Again!
Vast Bridges has once again been named as the Best Place to Work in Jacksonville, in the Bold City Best 2015 contest. Amongst the many medium-sized businesses in Jacksonville with 25 – 99 employees, we received the most votes as the Best Place to Work: Medium Business in the first ever Bold City Best contest. The announcement came in the September 27th edition of the Florida Times Union.
A People’s Choice Award
The voting took place from mid-July to mid-August for the inaugural edition of the Jacksonville.com’s Bold City Best contest. Residents of Jacksonville could fill out a ballot online by selecting the category to vote in and then selecting their favorites or writing in their responses. The contest was to name the best places, businesses, restaurants, events, people and things that Jacksonville has to offer.
Awards such as Best Place to Work in Jacksonville are awarded by a variety of organizations. However, each one is based on its own set of criteria. Some poll employees, others analytically compare data, and others just look at benefits. This particular award, the Bold City Best, is especially exciting because it is Jacksonville residents who have chosen us to be worthy of it. That means our company is becoming more visible in the community and is being recognized for excellence in how it treats its employees.
Upon learning of the honor, our founder and CEO Kevin Conner stated “We are very excited to have been chosen the Bold City Best 2015 Best Place to Work: Medium Business. It is especially an honor that we were chosen by Jacksonville residents. We love being rooted in a vibrant, exciting, dynamic city like Jacksonville. We promise to keep growing and to always represent well.”
That Bold City Party
Jacksonville.com hosted “That Bold City Party” on October 1st and one of the perks of being named Best Place to Work in Jacksonville was that we got to attend. The hottest ticket in town this fall, it was held at the FanDuelVille Pool Deck at Everbank Field. The bash ran from 6:30 to 11pm and featured the best bands in Jacksonville, great food, swimming, and more.
One of the exciting perks of That Bold City Party is that attendees received a swag bag. Our latest promotional item – coffee packets with our branding on the packaging were one of the items found in the swag bag. Because we are always hiring, we hope that this unique promo item captures the attention of some of the talented, young professionals that were in attendance.
