The awards program was created in 2009 and is a project of the Orange County Business Journal and Best Companies Group.
This county-wide survey and awards program was designed to identify, recognize and honor the best places of employment in Orange County, benefiting the county's economy, its workforce and businesses.
"Our vison is to secure every endpoint under the sun. With that said, we are very excited to be recognized as a local company that offers opportunities for Orange County's residents to leverage their expertise for this purpose," said Vina Leite, Chief People Officer at Cylance. "With over 250 employees working in Irvine alone, Cylance is proud to be operating a world-class cybersecurity company right here in what is many of our team members' hometown."
To be considered for the award, employers had to fulfill the following eligibility requirements:
- Have at least 15 employees working in Orange County;
- Be a for-profit or not-for-profit business or government entity;
- Be a publicly or privately held business;
- Have a facility in Orange County; and
- Have been in business a minimum of one year.
Organizations from across the county entered the two-part process to determine the Best Places to Work in Orange County. The first part consisted of evaluating each employer's workplace policies, practices, and demographics and represented approximately 25% of the total evaluation. The second part consisted of an employee survey to measure the employee experience and was worth approximately 75% of the total evaluation. The combined scores determined the top organizations and the final ranking. Best Companies Group managed the overall registration and survey process in Orange County and also analyzed the data and used their expertise to determine the final ranking.
The ranking of the winning organizations will be released in a special section of the Orange County Business Journal’s July 25 issue.
