McAngus Goudelock & Courie was recently named as one of the Best Places to Work in South Carolina. The firm was ranked #15 in the Large Employer Category. This ninth annual program was created by SC Biz News in partnership with the South Carolina Chamber of Commerce and Best Companies Group.

“It is because of our dedicated and talented team of attorneys, legal support and administrative staff that we are again included in the Best Places to Work in South Carolina,” said Jay Courie, MGC’s Managing Member. “Over the past 19 years, we have worked hard to create a culture where we value each and every member of the MGC family.”

This survey and awards program was designed to identify, recognize and honor the best employers in the state of South Carolina, benefiting the state's economy, workforce and businesses. The list is made up of 50 companies.

To be considered for participation, companies had to fulfill the following eligibility requirements:

  • Be a for-profit or not-for-profit business or government entity
  • Be a publicly or privately held business
  • Have a facility in the state of South Carolina
  • Have a minimum of 15 employees working in the state of South Carolina
  • Be in business a minimum of one year

Companies from across the state entered the two-part survey process to determine the Best Places to Work in South Carolina. The first part consisted of evaluating each nominated company's workplace policies, practices, philosophy, systems 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 ranking. Best Companies Group managed the overall registration and survey process, analyzed the data and determined the final rankings.

The ranked companies were recognized at a reception and dinner, presented by Colonial Life, on August 7, 2014 and the rankings will be published in the August 2014 issue of SCBIZ magazine.
