Annually, Forbes compiles a list of the best employers per each state. This year, after surveying 80,000 working Americans and over 500 employers, Horry County Schools was named the second-best employer in SC. Southeastern Freight Lines in Lexington took home the first place spot.
As a way of collecting data, the surveys are given through a rolling basis between October 2019 and May 2020. This year especially, it means so much to join the companies listed by Forbes. Within the questionnaire, employers are compared throughout the year “so as to account for any statistically significant variations in the results collected before and after the onset of the coronavirus pandemic,” explained Forbes.
While many companies have struggled to maintain over the course of 2020, Horry County Schools thrives as an employer. With over 5,101 working employees, the Horry County Schools seem to prioritize their staff. Superintendent Rick Maxey holds his seat throughout the Forbes award and calendar year.
In order to best collect the information for this market research study, Forbes partnered with Statista to hone in on the most well-liked organizations per each state. This is the second year such research has been conducted.
