Their statewide survey and awards program is designed to identify, recognize and honor the best places of employment in North Carolina, benefiting the state’s economy, workforce and businesses. The newly published list also names seventeen large sized companies (250+ employees U.S. employees).

The combined scores determined top companies and final ranking.
