  • Memphis’ top companies show their team spirit

    The rain didn’t dampen the spirits of some of the “best” Mid-South companies.

    Memphis Business Journal held its 2019 Best Places to Work and HR Impact Awards Oct. 11 at AutoZone Park to celebrate the companies that go way beyond the status quo for their employees.

    “The Gallup organization reminds us every couple of years that nearly 70 percent of employees are actively disengaged,” said Joanna Crangle market president and publisher of MBJ. “This stems from an array of challenges, generational differences, shifts in leadership, you name it. … Needless to say, this is scary stuff, except we can’t be scared because we’re sitting amongst those who get it.”

    HR Impact Awards Winners:

    • Nonprofit — Dana Bottonfield, vice president of human resources, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital
    • Public Co. — Tayna Hart, senior vice president, Executive Compensation and Total Rewards director, First Horizon National Corp.
    • Private Co. — Tera Jacksonvice president of human resources, IMC Companies
