FGP Named a 2019 Best Place to Work in South Carolina


FGP, Find Great People, is pleased to announce that it has been named the 15th Best Place to Work in South Carolina for 2019. This is the ninth - and sixth consecutive - time the Greenville-based talent acquisition and human resources consulting firm has made the prestigious statewide list and comes just months after FGP was ranked as one of the best recruitment companies in the country by Forbes magazine.

 

Created by SC Biz News in partnership with the South Carolina Chamber of Commerce and Best Companies Group, the Best Places to Work in SC initiative is designed to recognize the state’s most innovative and top-notch employers. Nominated companies are first evaluated on their workplace policies, practices, philosophy, systems and demographics, and secondly on employee surveys. The combined scores determine the top companies, and the final ranking is determined by Best Companies Group. Now in its 14th year, the Best Places to Work survey and awards program recognized a total of 75 South Carolina companies, including small-to-medium-sized companies with 15–249 employees and large companies with more than 250 employees.

 

“Both the Best Places to Work in South Carolina recognition and our recent Forbes ranking speak to the strength of our team,” said John Uprichard, FGP President and Chief Executive Officer. “At FGP, we believe it takes great people to find great people. Our team have been the ones to help develop and maintain a positive, vibrant and engaged culture where each person regardless of role, feels that she or he plays a part in building our brand and great companies for our clients across the country” he continued.

 

The 2019 award marks the ninth time FGP has been named a Best Place to Work in South Carolina, including 2018: #22, 2017: #35, 2016: #32; 2015: #18, 2014: #15, 2008: #4, 2007: #2 and 2006: #1.

 

In March, FGP was named as one of the best recruitment companies in the country by Forbes magazine. FGP was ranked #72 in the Best Recruiters, Professional Services category and #73 in the Best Recruiters, Executive Search category.
