Best Places to Work in Frederick County Honored

In front of a standing room only crowd, 10 companies were honored last night at the Delaplaine Visual Arts Center as the 2014 Best Places to Work in Frederick County.  The Campaign, now in it's 12th year, is part of a countywide partnership between the Frederick County Business Development and Retention Department, City of Frederick Department of Economic Development, Frederick County Workforce Services and the Frederick County Chamber of Commerce.

All Frederick County businesses were invited to take the survey and winners were chosen based on their family friendly practices including: benefits, voluntary turnover rate, median salary and diversity practices. This year, two new awards were given for the People's Choice and Most Creative Workplace.
