Gulf Coast Named One of “Best Places to Work in Sarasota-Manatee”

Gulf Coast Community Foundation ranked third in the inaugural “Best Places to Work in Sarasota-Manatee” survey sponsored by the Sarasota Herald-Tribune.

Gulf Coast received the honor at a luncheon hosted by the Herald-Tribune on November 2.

In a special supplement published in the paper’s Sunday, November 5, edition, Business Editor Terry Galvin wrote: “While it’s difficult to keep up with all the initiatives the organization’s staff and board have going at any given time, they all add up to one ambitious goal: making its community a better place.”

Gulf Coast was the highest-ranking nonprofit on the list of the Top 25 Best Places to Work featured.

The survey is open to any organization of any size in any industry, nonprofit or for-profit, private or public, according to the Herald-Tribune. The only requirement is that it must have at least 15 employees in Sarasota or Manatee counties.

Best Companies Group, based in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, conducted the survey.
