IRVINE, Calif., Aug. 7, 2013 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — The Orange County Business Journal has announced that EPIC has been recognized as a “Best Place to Work” in Orange County. EPIC is one of only 34 Orange County companies with 250 or more employees to receive this honor and is ranked 4th in the large company category.

“Receiving this recognition is very exciting because it highlights the passion, energy and enthusiasm of our people,” said Mary Smith, director of human resources for EPIC. “We feel that happy, engaged team members, who are challenged by and enjoy their work, will deliver the superior level of client service excellence EPIC is committed to providing. We believe this is a significant reason for the rapid growth of our company and the loyalty of our clients. It is a primary driver of our success.”

The Best Companies Group administered the confidential survey online and included questions that gauged how happy employees are with their work culture, management practices, benefits and overall compensation. This survey and awards program was designed to identify, recognize and honor the best employers in Orange County, benefiting the county’s economy, workforce, and businesses.

Unique factors that EPIC’s employees noted were a pleasant working environment, company-sponsored entertainment, and a superior wellness program.
