MOBILE, Ala. (AP) -Daphne Utilities Director Rob McElroy said everyone in the office was excited to hear about the company's selection.
He said it was "astounding" that the newspaper would pick a
"small-town Alabama utilities company as one of the top businesses
to work for in the nation."
McElroy said representatives from the Wall Street Journal and
nonprofit group Winning Workplaces selected Daphne Utilities as a
"Top 35 Finalist" out of more than 800 applicants.
According to a news release, the designation is given to small
businesses that foster teamwork, flexibility, innovation and other
traits while helping their employees grow.
