Biz 417's Best Places to Work Celebration

Biz 417's Top 20 Best Places to Work

Wednesday, September 8 | 11:30 AM-1:30 PM | Oasis Hotel and Convention Center

Congratulations to Biz 417's 20 Best Places to Work, as chosen by Best Companies Group. It's time to celebrate what you have worked so hard to build, and reveal the rankings at our 20 Best Places to Work celebration presented by Penmac Staffing.

Here's what to expect:

This is not your typical business lunch. 

Bring your team spirit, your foam fingers, your noisemakers. This is a party. And yes, there is a prize for Best Team Spirit! Your team could win a team building day trip with the awesome crew from 37 North Expeditions.

Rankings revealed.

Close to 40 companies applied for this inaugural contest, and yours made the Top 20! That's a really big deal. But of course, you want to know where you rank, right? The first place to find out is at the celebration! And then read about it in our September/October issue of Biz 417 which we are handing out as you leave the party.

Get fired up.

You're the best of the best! Treat your team to valuable leadership lessons with our high energy keynote speaker, Kansas City Chiefs mascot, Dan Meers.
