Nominations sought for Best Places to Work in Northern Nevada awards
RENO, Nev. — Nominations are open for the Northern Nevada Human Resource Association’s 12th annual Best Places to Work in Northern Nevada awards.
Between now and Jan. 25, 2019, employees, customers and business leaders can nominate their favorite organization for an award.
“With an unemployment rate of less than 4 percent, having a Best Places to Work award can really make a difference in recruitment efforts,” Karyn Jensen, past president of NNHRA and founder of HCR, The Human Resource Connection, Ltd., said in a news release. “Leveraging great workplace culture as a competitive advantage is how smart organizations recruit and retain the best and the brightest.”
According to NNHRA, all finalists in five categories will be invited to attend the 12th Annual Best Places to Work awards celebration on April 25, 2019, at the Silver Legacy Resort Casino.
Finalists will be recognized, and winners will be announced live. Last year, nearly 500 business leaders and their employees attended this fun and inspiring event.
“Anyone can make a nomination, but this is not a popularity contest,” explained Jensen. “A company’s overall score and ranking is determined by their employee’s responses to 30 standardized survey questions.”
Nevada’s Airbnb host community welcomed roughly 321,800 guest arrivals and earned a combined $53.5 million in supplemental income from Memorial Day weekend through Labor Day weekend. The top five city destinations for guests to Nevada were, in order: Las Vegas, Incline Village, Stateline, Reno and North Las Vegas.
