R&J Public Relations has been named one of the Best Places to Work in New Jersey for 2011 by NJBIZ Magazine.
This prestigious annual program identifies, recognizes and honors the top places of employment in New Jersey. The Best Places to Work in New Jersey program honors up to 70 companies split into two groups: small/medium-sized companies (15-249 employees) and large-sized companies (more than 250 employees). R&J Public Relations has been named one of the Best Places to Work in New Jersey in the medium category, one of only 29 companies to receive this honor in the small/medium-sized business category.
“Our success as an agency depends first and foremost on our people,” said John Lonsdorf, President of R&J Public Relations. “We have made a firm commitment to employing only the best and brightest PR professionals, and we truly enjoy sharing with them an environment in which they feel empowered and invested in both the agency and our clients’ success. Being honored by NJBIZ as one of the Best Places to Work in New Jersey is a gratifying recognition of the emphasis we place on making R&J a great place for our employees to grow personally and professionally.”
Companies from across the state entered the two-part process to determine the 70 Best Places to Work in New Jersey. The first part consisted of evaluating each nominated company’s workplace policies, practices, philosophy, systems and demographics. This phase was worth approximately 25% of the total evaluation. The second part consisted of an employee survey to measure the employee experience. This phase was worth approximately 75% of the total evaluation. The combined scores determined the top companies and the final ranking. The overall registration and survey process was managed by Best Companies Group of Harrisburg, PA, which analyzed the data and used their expertise to determine the final rankings.
The Best Places to Work in New Jersey annual award program was created in 2005 by NJBIZ Magazine, New Jersey’s only weekly business journal covering the entire state.
