Nelson & Associates, an electrical manufacturers' rep based in Santa Fe Springs, Calif., was recently named one of the “Best Places to Work in LA” for 2007 by the Los Angeles Business Journal. This county-wide survey and awards program was designed to identify, recognize and honor the best places of employment in Los Angeles County, benefiting the region's economy, its workforce and businesses. Nelson & Associates was ranked 30th in the medium-sized company category.

Companies from every industry entered the two-part process to determine the “Best Places to Work in LA.” 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 percent 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 percent of the total evaluation. The combined scores determined the top companies and the final ranking.

Nelson & Associates was recognized and honored at the Best Places to Work in LA awards reception in September, hosted by the Los Angeles Business Journal at the Millennium Biltmore Hotel in Downtown Los Angeles. The final rankings were revealed at the lunch gathering to a crowd of nearly 500 business professionals.
