Floyd Lee Locums Named the “Best Place to Work in South Carolina”

Charleston, SC, August 22, 2022 – Today, South Carolina-based company, Floyd Lee Locums—a healthcare staffing firm focused on locum tenens—is pleased to announce being named Grand Prize Winner of SC Biz News’ “Best Place to Work in South Carolina” in the medium-sized employer category. Floyd Lee Locums’ win is especially meaningful since they are a first-time entrant, and this accolade recognizes a commitment to being an employer of choice and exemplifying outstanding standards in a range of categories, including culture, benefits, and more.

“Accolades aren’t the reason we work in healthcare staffing, but being named the Grand Prize Winner as a ‘Best Place to Work’ is certainly something special for Floyd Lee Locums,” said Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer Natasha Lee. “I know our true north is the healthcare providers and the patients they deliver care to. In order to do that, we need to hire and retain extraordinary talent and be a leader in our industry. This award indicates we’re on the right track.”

This acknowledgement continues Floyd Lee Locums’ trajectory of excellence. In the last year alone, the organization has been ranked on several award lists, including Staffing Industry Analysts’ “Best Staffing Firms,” Inc. 5000’s “Fastest Growing Companies,” The Financial Times’ “Americas’ Fastest Growing Companies 2022,” and more.

The process for being considered a “Best Place to Work in South Carolina” involves surveying by the Best Companies Group, an independent research company. A two-part process includes an employer questionnaire about policies and procedures, among other information, as well as an employee survey with eight focus areas, including work environment, pay and benefits, leadership and planning, and overall engagement. Overall rankings reflect a combination of the questionnaire and the survey data.

“Every one of these businesses goes above and beyond to celebrate its most precious resource—its employees,” said Rick Jenkins, SC Biz News group publisher. “We’re honored to recognize all 119 of the honorees as they do their part to make South Carolina such a special place to live, work and play.”

In total, SC Biz News and the Best Companies Group called out extraordinary companies across South Carolina—from contractors to credit unions. Companies are broken down in small (15-49 employees), medium (50-249), and large (250 and above) employer categories. This is the organizations’ 17th year naming honorees, and a ceremony was held on August 18 at the Columbia Metropolitan Convention Center to recognize the recipients.
