The American Junior Golf Association was named one of the Top 100 Workplaces in Metro Atlanta, according to the list released Sunday by the Atlanta Journal Constitution. The AJGA ranked as the No. 36 small company in the second-annual survey.
According to the AJC, the purpose of the list is to recognize and celebrate with the companies that should be considered the best metro Atlanta has to offer.
More than 1,000 companies were nominated in the 2012 contest by the AJC and its partner Workplace Dynamics, who surveyed 188 metro companies that agreed to participate with more than 43,500 metro-Atlanta workers taking part in the survey.
The top 100 list includes:
· 20 large companies (500 or more employees)
· 30 midsize companies (150-499 employees)
· 50 small companies (149 or fewer employees)
