South Carolina Employer Makes Forbes’ Best Employers For 2023 List
It’s what we all hope for. We want to work for an employer who not only compensates us fairly, but provides a positive situation. And apparently, one particular South Carolina employer ranked among Forbes’ list of “America’s Best Employers By State for 2023.” They based their list on a sample of around 70,000 people employed by companies with more than 500 workers in the country.
And, Coastal Carolina University in Conway, South Carolina landed at number 23 on Forbes’ list. According to WPDE, the university was one of three universities in the state to make the list. Some of the things asked of those taking the survey included whether they recommend the employer to family and friends. The survey also asked workers to rate their job on things such as compensation and working conditions. In acknowledging the honor, a CCU spokesperson said, “CCU cares for its people.”
With more than 1400 full time employees, the South Carolina employer offers half day Fridays schedules and remote work with flexible hours. Also, Clemson University and University of South Carolina landed on the list when it comes to universities in the state.
Our son is a senior at Coastal Carolina University. And, in our experience over the past few years I find professors and staff at the university to be pleasant, efficient and easy to work with. Typically, when employees are happy in their situation it shows in their attitude and willingness to go the extra mile for customers. And, that’s how the university employees present themselves to us. So, kudos to the folks at the top creating that vibe for satisfied staff.
In North Carolina, Atrium Health, Bank of America and Belk in Charlotte were just a few employers who made Forbes’ list for the Tar Heel State. See Forbes’ full list for best employers in each state to see if yours made it!
The Top 20 Companies for Remote Jobs in North Carolina In 2023
Working remotely is growing exponentially in popularity and opportunities. While it’s not for me, at least not 100% of the time, many many people are fans. In fact, I know several people who would never consider an office job anymore. And for a lot of people, the new year can mean looking for a new job. If that sounds like you then you’ll want to be aware of the companies hiring most work-at-home employees. If you’re in North Carolina and in the market for a remote job, FlexJobs has released its 10th annual “Top 100 Companies to Watch for Remote Jobs” list.
In the study, they note that between 2021 and 2022, “FlexJobs saw a 20% increase in the number of remote job listings on the site, compared with just 12% the previous year. And with the wider adoption of remote work came more variety in job titles and career levels. While a majority of positions were for experienced-level jobs (62%), manager and senior-level roles claimed 32% of the remote job listings. The remaining 6% of postings were attributed to entry-level jobs.”
So, which companies are hiring the most at-home workers right now? Below you’ll find the top 20 companies for remote jobs. While some are household names, others do more of the behind-the-scenes work. And, while many of these companies may not be based in North Carolina, since the work is largely remote, many of them offer jobs for residents. Read the full list from FlexJobs here.
