The Mississippi Business Journal hosted a luncheon at the Old Capitol Inn on Thursday, June 22nd to recognize the winners and participants for the 2017 Best Places to Work in Mississippi competition. Irby Construction won second Best Place to Work in Mississippi in the mega-large category. To be eligible for this award, companies must be a for-profit or not-for-profit business, be a publicly or privately held business, maintain a facility in Mississippi, have at least 15 full-time employees in Mississippi, and be in good standing with the Mississippi Secretary of State.
Admissibility for this award was based on a number of employees within each participating company completing a survey. Southern Research conducted all of the research to determine which company ranked first, second and third in categories ranging from small to mega-large, based on the number of employees.
Competing against other mega-large companies throughout the state, Irby stood out. Irby defeated St. Dominic’s, Harrah’s and Jones Companies, while first place went to Viking Range. This competition served as an opportunity for Irby to learn about in-state companies of all sizes, as well as our employee satisfaction. It was an honor to participate in this competition, and Irby employees are excited to aim for first place next year!
