We are excited to announce SouthWood was recognized as one of The Charlotte Observer’s Top Workplaces for 2017. In its third annual survey, The Charlotte Observer’s Top Workplaces list spotlights the highest-rated private, public, nonprofit and government agencies as ranked by their employees. “We are humbled and proud to be named a top workplace in the Charlotte area,” says John Petrone, President. “Our number one priority is our people – employees and clients. We empower them to do their job to their best ability, which reflects in our high-quality product. Our team members define SouthWood.” Fifty-five companies were honored at a celebration on Thursday, September 28th at The Charlotte Observer and SouthWood is featured in a special section of the newspaper today. Workplace Dynamics surveyed over 15,000 Charlotte-area employees to determine this year’s results.
