Each year, the Triangle Business Journal names 50 businesses in the area as the “Best Places to Work in the Triangle.”  This year, several of our Durham 2.0 investors were recognized.  The winners were chosen based on an employee-survey process conducted by Quantum Workplace. Once nominated, a company had to meet a threshold in employee participation – a percentage that varies based upon the size of the company – to be eligible to be honored.   Our Durham 2.0 key investors that were honored were:

  • CBRE
  • DPR Construction
  • Ernst & Young
  • Fidelity Investments
  • McAdams
  • United Therapeutics

This is the first year the event has featured five categories of winners, based on size: small, medium, large, extra large and giant.  The winners were announced in July, but the rankings in respective categories were announced at the event last week.

“Employees are the lifeblood of any company,” says TBJ Publisher Jason Christie. “These 50 companies have demonstrated belief that happy employees produce successful and thriving businesses.”

Congratulations to all of the companies recognized, but the Greater Durham Chamber of Commerce is especially proud of our key investors who continue to be leaders in our community.
