July 12, 2021 –  Edafio Technology Partners has been named to the Arkansas Business Journal’s annual list of Best Places to Work for the fourth consecutive year.  This eighth annual program was created by Arkansas Business and Best Companies Group. 

This survey and awards program was designed to identify, recognize and honor the best employers in Arkansas, benefiting the state’s economy, workforce and businesses. The list is made up of 50 companies. 

To be considered for participation, companies had to fulfill the following eligibility requirements: 

– Be a for-profit, not-for-profit business or government entity; 

– Be a publicly or privately held business; 

– Have a facility in Arkansas; 

– Have at least 15 employees in Arkansas; 

– Be in business a minimum of 1 year.  

Companies from across the state entered the two-part survey process to determine the Best Places to Work in Arkansas. 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% 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% of the total evaluation. The combined scores determined the top companies and the final rankings. Best Companies Group managed the overall registration and survey process in Arkansas, analyzed the data and determined the final rankings. 

“It is a great honor for Edafio to be recognized as one of the Best Places to Work in Arkansas for the fourth consecutive year, especially since this award is mainly based on the feedback from our associates,” said Edafio President and CEO Kenny Kinley.

“This award validates the investment we have made into strengthening our culture and taking care of our people,” said Amy Beam, Director of People Operations. 

All of the winners will be celebrated and category winners including the Benchmark Award winner will be revealed at a hybrid event with in-person and virtual package options on September 29, 2021, at the DoubleTree Hotel Little Rock, and then published in a special supplement of Arkansas Business on October 4.
