Laser Spine Institute, specializing in endoscopic spine surgery, is proud to announce it has again been recognized by its employees as one of the best places to work in Tampa Bay. The company was recently recognized by Tampa Bay Business Journal as one of the “Best Places to Work" in Tampa Bay, and was ranked second in the publication’s “Biggest Employer" award category. In addition, the Tampa Bay Times also named Laser Spine Institute as a “Top Workplace" for the third year in a row.
The nomination process included self-employee surveys that were distributed internally to Laser Spine Institute’s nearly 350 local employees and measured team effectiveness, trust in senior leadership, employee value, compensation and benefits.
“At Laser Spine Institute, the core of our success is the talent and passion of our remarkable people," says Bill Horne, CEO. “We will never waver from our commitment to our employees, and we strive to ensure they have the necessary resources and support available to come to work every day with a passion to help our patients looking for relief from neck and back pain."
Employees of Laser Spine Institute also touted the company’s corporate culture and promoting from within as key differentiators. Insights from the employee surveys show that health and wellness initiatives, team building exercises, tuition reimbursement and ongoing professional development are a few of the many reasons why the company is a preferred employer. Employees also called out work-life balance and initiatives focused on healthy lifestyles, including an employee running club, annual health fair and free smoking-cessation programs.
Laser Spine Institute prides itself in hiring local talent and promoting from within. In 2011 alone, 70 new jobs were created and 61 employees were promoted to higher positions within the company.
