Team Cone earned this designation after evaluation by an independent third-party organization of the company practices, policies, information, and especially employee satisfaction surveys. The anonymous employee satisfaction surveys contributed 75% to the overall competition score.
“Being voted for the fourth year in a row to the list of Best Companies to Work For in Florida shows that our team appreciates our culture of caring,” says Team Cone Human Resources Director Jonathan Jarrell. “We believe that our company’s culture will take us into the future.

The company’s founder, Douglas P. Cone, Jr. says that he is again honored to be named to this list by his teammates. “We have just been through some of the toughest years in our company’s history,” Cone says. “We are beyond proud that our team has again voted us to this prestigious list. We will continue to work towards earning this honor every year.”

About Florida Trend’s Best Companies to Work For in Florida™ competition
Each year, Florida Trend Magazine partners with the Best Companies Group to administer anonymous surveys to employees in eligible companies around Florida. Employers complete an in-depth questionnaire and employees have the opportunity to offer their honest feedback by taking part in a company-wide survey. Once both portions of the assessment are complete, the data is analyzed to determine if an organization has what it takes to be the “best.” The list of Best Companies is published in the August edition of Florida Trend Magazine.
