The initiative, sponsored by Arkansas Business, recognizes employers throughout the state based on employee engagement, and employee benefits and retention policies, among other criteria.
CGWG was recognized for its overall team-based culture, which encompasses unique billing practices, flexible scheduling and a collective approach to handling client work that ensures everyone can achieve work life balance.
