JACKSONVILLE, Fla., July 21, 2016 –For the second year in a row, Jimerson & Cobb, P.A., has been named one of Florida’s “Best Companies to Work For” by Florida Trend magazine.
To qualify for the list, companies had to employ at least 15 workers in Florida and have been in operation for at least one year. Companies that chose to participate underwent an evaluation of their workplace policies, practices, philosophy, systems and demographics. The process also included a survey to measure employee satisfaction. The combined scores determined the top companies and the final ranking.
“It is deeply gratifying to have our firm recognized not only for our dedication to our clients, but also to our employees,” said Managing Partner Charles Jimerson, who noted that the firm was also honored this past month by Jacksonville Business Journal as one of Northeast Florida’s fastest-growing companies. “It is only through the enthusiasm, hard work and dedication of our staff that we have continued to grow and develop so rapidly as a firm.”
Jimerson said the firm places a high priority on maintaining a positive and encouraging work environment, and regularly hosts employee team-building activities to foster camaraderie and collaboration. Recently, for example, the firm held a painting contest in which participants imitated the
style of Bob Ross.
Florida Trend’s Executive Editor, Mark Howard, believes employee satisfaction is essential to the success of any business. “The Best Companies find ways to make the workplace an easy place to be…” said Howard. “Those companies understand the value of using games to build relationships among their
employees, and also in promoting wellness.”
To compile the list, Florida Trend partnered with independent research firm Best Companies Group, which managed the registration, survey and analysis and determined the rankings. A total of 100 companies made the overall list, but businesses were recognized in groups according to their size as
small, midsized or large companies. On the list of Best Small Companies, Jimerson & Cobb ranked at number 13.
The “Best Companies to Work for in Florida” program was created by Florida Trend and Best Companies Group and is endorsed by the HR Florida State Council. The complete Best Companies list will be featured in the August issue of Florida Trend magazine and can be viewed online at
