This statewide survey and awards program is designed to identify, recognize and honor the best places of employment in Georgia, benefiting the state’s economy, workforce and businesses. The 2017 Best Places to Work in Georgia list is made up of 20 companies.
“It is such an honor to be recognized as one of the best places to work in Georgia,” said Tim Martin, CEO of Carroll EMC. “It is no secret that the key to our success is our employees. Not only do we truly care for and take care of our Members, but we also truly care for and take care of each other. It is that culture of family that makes working at Carroll EMC so great.”
