BATON ROUGE, La. (October 2, 2018)— LWCC is pleased to announce it was recently named as one of the 2018 Best Places to Work in Baton Rouge. The awards program is a project of the Greater Baton Rouge Business Report, the Greater Baton Rouge SHRM, an affiliate of the Society for Human Resource Management and Best Companies Group. This survey and awards program was created in 2014 to identify, recognize and honor the best places of employment in Baton Rouge, benefiting its economy, its workforce and businesses.

“We are beyond thrilled that LWCC has been chosen as one of the best places to work in our community,” stated President and CEO Kristin Wall. “It is an honor to be recognized in this way, and to be listed among many other great companies. Our people are the key to our success and what make us great. We owe thanks and appreciation to all of our colleagues within LWCC.”

Companies from across the region entered the two-part process to determine the Best Places to Work in Baton Rouge. The first part consisted of evaluating each company's workplace policies, practices and demographics. The second part consisted of an employee survey to measure the employee experience. The combined scores determined the top companies and the final rankings. Best Companies Group managed the overall registration and survey process in Baton Rouge and also analyzed the data and used their expertise to determine the final rankings. 

The rankings of the winning companies were released on the morning of September 25 at the Best Places to Work in Baton Rouge Breakfast, hosted by the Greater Baton Rouge Business Report. For more information on the survey process for the Best Places to Work in Baton Rouge program, visit
