United Way: One of the Best Places to Work in New Orleans

New Orleans CityBusiness named United Way of Southeast Louisiana (UWSELA) one of the Best Places to Work in New Orleans for the second year in a row.

This annual program was created by New Orleans CityBusiness and Best Companies Group to identify, recognize and honor the best employers in New Orleans, benefiting the area's economy, workforce and businesses.

Eligible companies had to have a facility in the New Orleans area, have at least 10 employees working in the region and be in business a minimum of one year.

For an organization with a vision of more equitable communities, UWSELA is leading by example, offering the benefits and workplace culture necessary to ensure their diverse team has the quality opportunities needed for success in work and life.

UWSELA’s passionate employees inspire each other every day to tackle the toughest community issues. They love working together as a team to make an active difference in the places they call home.

Companies from across New Orleans entered the two-part survey process to determine the Best Places to Work in New Orleans. The first part consisted of evaluating each nominated company's workplace policies, practices, philosophy, systems and demographics. This part of the process was worth approximately 25% 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 75% of the total evaluation. The combined scores determined the top companies and the final rankings. Best Companies Group managed the overall registration and survey process in Washington, analyzed the data and determined the final rankings.

Companies will be recognized in the December 16 issue of New Orleans CityBusiness.
