NAVC ranked second in the small company category.

ORLANDO, FL – September 21, 2022 – The North American Veterinary Community (NAVC) was named a Central Florida Top Workplace by the Orlando Sentinel. This award comes on the heels of NAVC CEO Gene O’Neill being recognized by the Orlando Business Journal with a 2022 C-Suite Award as one of the region's top 20 leaders and outstanding performers in their areas of expertise, as well as for their contributions and commitment to their professions and the local community.

This marks the fourth year that the NAVC has been named one of the best places to work by the Orlando Sentinel. NAVC placed second for best employer among the 66 small companies recognized this year.

The list is based solely on employee feedback gathered through a third-party survey administered by Energage, LLC, a leading provider of technology-based employee engagement tools. 106 employers made the winners list out of the 2,177 organizations that participated in the 2022 survey.

“It is an honor to receive this recognition from the Orlando Sentinel.
