Octane, which prides itself on its culture, was included in Orange County Business Journal’s 2022 ‘Best Places To Work’.
Octane, an organization leading the Southern California technology and medical technology business ecosystem, is pleased to announce its appointment to the 2022 Best Places to Work in Orange County list, created by Orange County Business Journal. The awards program was created in 2009 and is a project of the Orange County Business Journal in partnership with Workforce Research Group.
“We’re proud to have been voted again as a best place to work,” says Janelle Brunette, COO of Octane. “This is especially rewarding and meaningful because we are celebrating our 20th anniversary this year, so this recognition reinforces our mission and the impact we bring to Orange County. If you ask anyone in our organization what they love most about working at Octane, they would say the people and working towards a common mission. I couldn’t agree more! I am thankful to be part of a team that feels like family and am proud of the impact we continue to make in the communities we serve.”
This county-wide survey and awards program was designed to identify, recognize and honor the best places of employment in Orange County, California, benefiting the county's economy, its workforce and businesses.
To be considered for participation, employers had to fulfill the following eligibility requirements:
- Have at least 15 full- or part-time permanent employees working in Orange County;
- Have a physical operation in Orange County;
- Be a publicly or privately held organization;
- Be a for-profit, not-for-profit, or a government organization;
- Have been in business for at least one year, at the program registration deadline
Organizations from across the county entered the two-part process to determine the Best Places to Work in Orange County. The first part consisted of evaluating each employer's workplace policies, practices, and demographics. This part of the process was worth approximately 20% 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 80% of the total evaluation. The combined scores determined the top organizations and the final ranking. Workforce Research Group managed the overall registration and survey process in Orange County and also analyzed the data and used their expertise to determine the final ranking.
The ranking of the winning organizations were released via a special section of the Orange County Business Journal’s July 4th issue.
