This seventh annual program was created by Arkansas Business and Best Companies Group and St. Bernards has been included on the list since the program began in 2012.
This survey and awards program was designed to identify, recognize and honor the best employers in Arkansas, benefiting the state’s economy, workforce and businesses. The list is made up of 46 companies.
