For the third year, Columbus CEO and WBNS-10TV are proud to recognize 60 Top Workplaces in central Ohio, as identified by our experienced partner, WorkplaceDynamics LLC of Exton, Pa.

As unemployment in central Ohio hovers in the 4-percent range, smart employers do what it takes to retain good employees. They know creating a satisfied, engaged workforce and reducing turnover will contribute to the success of their business.

In other words, they know what it takes to create Top Workplaces.

For the third year, Columbus CEO and WBNS-10TV are proud to recognize 60 Top Workplaces in central Ohio, as identified by our experienced partner, WorkplaceDynamics LLC of Exton, Pa.

As central Ohio businesses strive to maximize their chances for success, this year's Top Workplaces offer examples across all sectors of companies and organizations as to what comprises a positive work environment. True care and concern for employees are at the core, with strong communications and values also ranking high.

Our 60 Top Workplaces are understandably proud of this achievement. For 22 Top Workplaces, this is their first year on the list-including Quantum Health and Kenneth's Hair Salon and Day Spas-the number-one ranked workplaces in the large and midsize categories, respectively. This year's number one small employer-CoverMyMeds-is among 19 Top Workplaces on the list for the second time. Another 19 have been Top Workplaces all three years.

Contributing writers TC Brown and Melissa Kossler Dutton have gleaned good advice for other workplaces in their profiles of the winners in each category and of companies that exemplify the key characteristics of Top Workplaces as identified by WorkplaceDynamics.

On behalf of Columbus CEO and WBNS-10TV, congratulations to all 60 Top Workplaces. It is an honor to share your examples with the central Ohio business community.
