Best Places to Work in SC 2016McAngus Goudelock & Courie, a regional insurance defense firm, was recently named as one of the Best Places to Work in South Carolina. The firm was ranked #21 in the large employer category (250 or more US employees). This eleventh annual program was created by SC Biz News in partnership with the South Carolina Chamber of Commerce and Best Companies Group.

“We have worked hard to create a culture at MGC that our employees are proud to be a part of,” said Jay Courie, MGC’s Managing Member. “It is because of our great MGC family that we continue to be successful, and I am grateful for each and every one of them.”

This survey and awards program was designed to identify, recognize and honor the best employers in the state of South Carolina, benefiting the state’s economy, workforce and businesses. The list is made up of 60 companies.

To be considered for participation, companies had to fulfill the following eligibility requirements:

  • Be a for-profit or not-for-profit business or government entity
  • Be a publicly or privately held business
  • Have a facility in the state of South Carolina
  • Have a minimum of 15 employees working in the state of South Carolina
  • Be in business a minimum of 1 year

Companies from across the state entered the two-part survey process to determine the Best Places to Work in South Carolina. The first part consisted of evaluating each nominated company’s workplace policies, practices, philosophy, systems and demographics. The second part consisted of an employee survey to measure the employee experience. The combined scores determined the top companies and the final ranking. Best Companies Group managed the overall registration and survey process, analyzed the data, and determined the final rankings.

The ranked companies were recognized at a reception and dinner, presented by Colonial Life, on August 4, 2016, and the rankings have been published in the August 2016 issue of SCBIZ magazine.
