Here are all the winners from  AJC’s 2018 Top Workplaces awards

There were more than 2,300 companies nominated or requested to participate in the 2018 Top Workplaces awards , but only 150 of those enterprises could be included in this year’s Top Workplaces awards, which is hosted by The Atlanta Journal-Constitution and its partner, Energage (formerly Workplace Dynamics).

Employees across the metro Atlanta responded to print and online solicitations that began appearing in September. To determine the top places to work, Energage −a Philadelphia-based human resources consulting company − surveyed 256 metro area companies. Throughout those companies, more than 55,000 employees participated, helping to whittle down the list of the top 150 workplaces, 25 large companies (listed below; 500 or more employees), 50 midsize companies (150-499 employees) and 75 small companies (149 or fewer employees).

Those workers were asked to respond to a set of statements using a seven-point Likert scale. Each statement was tested to ensure a high correlation with how Atlanta employees rate their workplaces. This was calculated by correlating the statement responses to a control question that asked each employee to rate his or her workplace on a scale of zero to 99.

A common theme resonates from employees of these 150 top companies. Employees said time and time again that there was a geniuine care from their employer and an investment in each and everyone of their employees.

The winners were honored at the 2018 AJC Top Workplaces event on Feb. 28, at the Georgia Aquarium.

Alston & Bird claimed the top spot as the top large workplace on the 2018 list. The law firm has made it into the top five large workplaces since Top Workplaces began in 2011. More than 760 employees work in the Atlanta office and they are among 1,840 globally.

SalesLoft, an Atlanta-based sales engagement software company, is the 2018 Top Workplaces midsize winner.

Founded in 2011, the company’s workforce grew to 220 global employees in the last year.

For a second year in a row, Supreme Lending  - Southeast Region leads the Top Workplaces small company division.

The Southeast region of Supreme Lending, a mortgage broker, has grown to 165 employees since 2007, along the way financing over 5,500 homes with nearly $1.2 billion in loan volume in 2017, said Pat Flood, regional operating partner. 

Since competition for workplace recognition is strong, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution and Engergage introduced a new category this year, Workplace Achievers. The program recognizes 32 organizations that did not crack the Top 150 rankings yet their employee feedback scores exceeded the national standards benchmark to be considered a Top Workplace.
