VENICE, Fla. — PGT Innovations (NYSE: PGTI), a national leader in the premium window and door category, was recently named to the inaugural Forbes list of America’s Best-in-State Employers 2019.
The full list includes 1,431 companies across the U.S. in 25 industry categories. For the state of Florida, PGT Innovations was one of only 185 companies to make the list, and one of only six companies in the Engineering and Manufacturing category.
To compile this list, Forbes partnered with market research company Statista to measure the leading employers around the country by surveying the general workforce. Forbes and Statista selected America’s Best-in-State Employers based on an independent survey from a vast sample of more than 80,000 U.S. Americans working for companies that employ at least 500 people in their U.S. operations.
In the evaluations, participants rated their willingness to recommend their employers to friends and family and were also prompted to evaluate other employers in their respective industries that stood out either positively or negatively.
“We are proud to be recognized on this list of employers, especially understanding that our nomination came from our team members, as well as the community-at-large,” said Jeff Jackson, PGT Innovations President and CEO. “Our culture is centered around serving, leading, and thriving. We strive to make a positive impact on the lives of the folks within our company, our customers, and our communities, and we’re thrilled that our efforts are resonating both inside and outside the walls of our facilities.”
The surveys were administered in a series of anonymous online panels and provide a representative sample of the U.S. workforce.
