JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – (July 30, 2014) - LandSouth Construction, a Jacksonville, Fla.-based general contractor specializing in multifamily developments and senior housing has been named one of the best places to work in Northeast Florida by the Jacksonville Business Journal.
Out of more than 50 companies whose employees were surveyed, LandSouth Construction was voted one of the best places to work in the category of businesses with 10-49 employees.
“We strongly believe in a workplace where employees have the opportunity to grow, give back to the community and develop their skills with educational opportunities,” said James Pyle, President and CEO of LandSouth Construction. “We are honored that our employees think this is one of the best companies to work for in Northeast Florida, and we will continue to create an environment where they enjoy coming to work every day.”
LandSouth Construction and its employees have given back to the local community every year by supporting organizations such as Builders Care, HabiJax, the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, Beaches Emergency Assistance Ministry, Clint Foundation, Wolfson's Children’s Hospital , MS150 and others.
The company has used this philosophy to improve all functions of its business, including communication among staff and the leadership team to positively reinforce the company’s values and mission in its 16 year history.
To do this, LandSouth Construction has created an internal recognition program that will assist its efforts and improve both recognition and communication of the company values. Each year the Diamond Award is voted on by the employees of LandSouth Construction based on whom has best represented the firm’s core values for the calendar year.
To receive the Best Places to Work recognition, LandSouth Construction’s employees rated the company’s workplace environment in an online survey based on several factors, including embracing new ideas and innovations, people practices, personal growth and development, people in the organization, and how things work at the company day-to-day.
The rankings are divided into three categories based upon the number of employees in the office. In order to qualify for participation, each business must be nominated by an employee and a minimum number of employees – depending upon the size of the company – must participate in the survey.
LandSouth Construction recently broke ground on apartments in Orlando and is currently building multifamily communities in Sanford and Oviedo, Fla. and Collegedale, Tenn. near Chattanooga as well as new senior living campus in Bonita Springs, Fla.
