Voting took place amongst WBJ’s readership from late October to mid-December, and over 1600 respondents selected their “bests.” Each voter had to select a company in at least 10 of the 31 business categories listed.
Rick Saia, Editor of the Worcester Business Journal, had this to say about the contest. “Best of contests are hardly a new concept for publishers. But for us, a “Best of Business” nudged us into new territory, offering our readers a chance to tell the rest of the WBJ readership who really deserves to be called “best.” Since our readership is made up chiefly of business leaders, it sees things differently than would a general-interest readership, which we hope adds value to the results we’re sharing in this issue.”
DAVIS will receive its award for 2015’s Best Staffing Agency at WBJ’s second Best of Business Awards event, on Thursday, Jan. 29th. At last year’s event we had the largest attendance of any company attending the event. We expect a repeat performance this year!
