CP Named a San Diego Best Place to Work For Third Year in a Row!

2016 Best Places to Work in San Diego

Coastal Payroll is very excited to announce that we have recently been named as one of the Best Places to Work in San Diego for the third consecutive year (2014, DSCF5231 copy2015, 2016)!  The annual list of the Best Places to Work in San Diego was created by the San Diego Business Journal, Best Companies Group, and our sponsor Kaiser Permanente.

This survey and awards program was designed to identify, recognize, and honor the best employers in San Diego, benefiting the county’s economy, workforce, and businesses. The list is made up of 100 companies split into four categories: 42 small-sized companies (15-49 US employees), 28 medium-sized companies (50-249 US employees), 18 large-sized companied (250-1,999 US employees), and 12 mega-sized companies (2,000 or more US employees). Coastal Payroll has been named one of this year’s Best Places to Work in San Diego in the small company category.


To be considered for participation, companies had to fulfill the following eligibility requirements:

- Be a for-profit, not-for-profit business or government entity;

- Be a publicly or privately held business;

- Have a facility in San Diego County;

- Have at least 15 employees in San Diego County;

- Be in business a minimum of 1 year.


Companies from across the county entered the two-part survey process to determine the Best Places to Work in San Diego. The first part consisted of evaluating each nominated company's workplace policies, practices, philosophy, systems, and demographics. The second part consisted of an employee survey to measure the employee experience. The combined scores determined the top companies and the final ranking. Best Companies Group managed the overall registration and survey process in San Diego, analyzed the data, and determined the final rankings.

Coastal Payroll Services sees the importance in building a positive work environment and strong employee relationships. Aside from PTO and benefits, some of the perks employees of CPS love the most are the wellness program, company “fun days”, and weekly catered lunches. We believe that developing CPS advocates through our employees will have a positive impact in our work, the lives of our clients, and our community.

The list-making companies will be honored at an awards ceremony on August 11. A special issue of the San Diego Business Journal that profiles the companies selected as the Best Places to Work in San Diego will be published on August 22.
