Best Places to Work in Orange County 2022

Press Release

Apriem Advisors was recently named as one of the 2022 Best Places to Work in Orange County. The awards program was created in 2009 and is a project of the Orange County Business Journal in partnership with Workforce Research Group.

This county-wide survey and awards program was designed to identify, recognize and honor the best places of employment in Orange County, California, benefiting the county’s economy, its workforce and businesses.

To be considered for participation, employers had to fulfill the following eligibility requirements:

  • Have at least 15 full- or part-time permanent employees working in Orange County
  • Have a physical operation in Orange County
  • Be a publicly or privately held organization
  • Be a for-profit, not-for-profit, or a government organization
  • Have been in business for at least one year, at the program registration deadline

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. This part of the process was worth approximately 20% of the total evaluation. The second part consisted of an employee survey to measure the employee experience. This part of the process was worth approximately 80% of the total evaluation. The combined scores determined the top organizations and the final ranking. Workforce Research 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 were released via a special section of the Orange County Business Journal’s July 4th issue. Apriem was featured in an interview by OCBJ’s Peter Brennan on what strategies, perks, and values keep morale high at the firm. Here is an excerpt from the interview:
