Roger West placed 11th in 2019 and 12th in 2020. The official rankings were released by Tampa Bay Business Journal on April 21 and recognize 60 exceptional companies in the Tampa Bay region. Forward-thinking businesses throughout Hillsborough, Pinellas, Pasco, Manatee, Sarasota and Polk counties made the list.
Recognition by the Tampa Bay Business Journal’s annual Best Places to Work program requires nominee employees to complete an anonymous survey from Quantum Workplace. The 60 companies are categorized by size: small (10-24 employees), medium (25-49), large (50-99) and extra-large (100 or more).
As part of the small business category, Roger West received a Quantum Score of more than 96 out of 100 after being evaluated on team effectiveness, retention risk, alignment with goals, trust with co-workers, individual contribution management effectiveness, trust in senior leaders, value, engagement, and practices.
“Being Named a Best Place to Work for the third year in a row is a tremendous honor for our agency. Especially after a difficult year for all, I’m especially proud of our team’s continued commitment to taking care of each other and delivering great service to our clients. There’s no better measurement of success than building a culture where people feel valued and enjoy coming to work. We’re going to continue making Roger West a place where experts thrive and clients see the results,” said CEO Michael Westafer, who founded the agency in 2007.
Inclusion on TBBJ’s Best Places to Work list is the latest in a series of recognition for the agency. Earlier this year, Roger West celebrated ranking No. 41 on Inc. Magazine’s List of Florida’s Fastest-Growing Private Companies.
