ESRI announced that it has been named one of the Top Companies of Inland Southern California, taking top honors in the Special Category. ESRI was one of eight winners selected from more than 100 nominees in this fifth annual Awards Program, sponsored by The Business Press, a weekly newspaper for the business community in San Bernardino and Riverside counties. Winners were chosen for seven categories: construction, finance/banking, health care, hospitality/entertainment, manufacturing/development, nonprofit, and professional services. According to The Business Press, the Special Category is for organizations who applied to more than one of the seven categories.
Nominations were submitted by independent sources including chambers of commerce, business organizations, trade associations, and other groups. A panel of community judges rated each nominee in six areas: safety, corporate social responsibility/ethics, employee relations, customer service, sales, and community relations.
