The Virginia Society of Certified Public Accountants (VSCPA), located in Glen Allen, recently was selected as one of the 2012 Best Places to Work in Virginia. The annual list of “Best Places to Work” was created by Virginia Business and Best Companies Group. This is the second consecutive year the VSCPA has received the award. The survey and award program was designed to identify, recognize and honor the best places of employment in Virginia, benefiting the state's economy, its work force and businesses. Organizations from across the state entered the two-part survey process to determine the best places to work in Virginia. The first part consisted of evaluating each nominated company's workplace policies, practices, philosophy, systems and demographics. The second part consisted of an employee survey to measure the employee experience. The combined scores determined the top organizations and the final ranking. The full ranking will be published in the February 2012 issue of Virginia Business. For more information on the Best Places to Work in Virginia program, visit http://www.BestPlacesToWorkVA.com.
