It was a record-setting year for the 15th annual Top Workplaces program in Orange County.
In all, 169 companies, the most ever honored in the program, made the list for their top-notch work culture in 2022.
The first year unshackled by the pandemic brought a number of milestones to many companies while others began to brace for a looming recession.
At the center of all the accolades were two words: “our people.” Not the bosses, not the bottom lines. The people.
As it goes for most thriving workplaces, putting employees front and center helped to create a collaborative and career-nurturing culture that rose above all others.
This year, 4,180 employers in the county were invited to have their employees take a survey managed by Energage. Combined, the companies surveyed employed 49,384 people in the county.
The program also welcomed 48 newcomers, including honoree Passco Companies.
