Top Workplaces 2023: Love where you work? Nominate your Delaware company for recognition

·2 min read

Workplaces have been challenged in recent years with adapting and changing to meet the demands of both a public health crisis and the concerns of their employees.

And businesses, both locally and nationally, have felt the strain − while simultaneously rising to the occasion.

Delaware businesses currently have a whopping 37,000 job openings, which is a number Gov. John Carney said in his budget address he has never seen in his decades of working in government. It's why jobs have become a focus in the fiscal year ahead.

But throughout these difficult times, businesses have continued to thrive.

Nominate your business today for Delaware's Top Workplaces 2023.

Throughout Delaware, companies have been recognized year after year for being places people want to work − places that employees describe as taking corporate responsibility, offering flexible working options and promoting team-building opportunities.

If this sounds like your workplace, tell us about it. Delaware Online/The News Journal is now accepting nominations for 2023's Top Workplaces, which recognizes small businesses, nonprofits and major corporations for positive workplace environments.

Any organization with 35 or more employees in Delaware is eligible to participate.

Companies are separated by size: large companies with 400 or more employees, midsize companies with 100 to 399 employees and small companies with fewer than 100 employees.

Last year's top winners, in order of size category, were Marlette Holdings, Bancroft Construction and Even & Odd Minds.

This is The News Journal's 17th year recognizing local companies in the Top Workplaces program. The News Journal was the first program in the nation to partner with the company, now called Energage, which conducts research for the project.

Energage conducts Top Workplaces surveys for media in 61 markets and surveyed more than 2 million employees at more than 8,000 organizations in 2021.

The process is based on a scientific survey of employees who rate their workplace culture. It also gives companies insight into what makes them unique. The surveys are 24 questions and will be conducted between February and May.

Last year, 1,039 organizations in the state were invited to participate, and 55 winners were recognized after 14,345 survey responses were sent in.

Companies and organizations can be nominated by visiting or calling (302) 342-1311. The deadline for nominations is March 17.
