South Carolina doubles down on big recognition for Charleston company and its CEO

August 31, 2022

Floyd Lee Locums named a Grand Prize Winner of “Best Places to Work in South Carolina,” while CEO receives “Women in Business Award”

Today, South Carolina-based company, Floyd Lee Locums—a healthcare staffing firm focused on locum tenens—announced recognition for two statewide accolades. The company was named the Grand Prize Winner of SC Biz News’ “Best Place to Work in South Carolina” in the medium-sized employer category—while CEO Natasha Lee received Charleston Business Magazine’s 2022 South Carolina “Women in Business Award.”

“Accolades aren’t the reason we work in healthcare staffing, but being named the Grand Prize Winner as a ‘Best Place to Work’ is certainly something special for Floyd Lee Locums,” said Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer Natasha Lee. “I know our true north is the healthcare providers and the patients they deliver care to. In order to do that, we need to hire and retain extraordinary talent and be a leader in our industry. These awards indicate we’re on the right track.”

These acknowledgements continue Floyd Lee Locums’ trajectory of excellence. In the last year alone, the organization has been ranked on several award lists, including Staffing Industry Analysts’ “Best Staffing Firms,” Inc. 5000’s “Fastest Growing Companies,” The Financial Times’ “Americas’ Fastest Growing Companies 2022,” and more. Similarly, Lee continues her own streak of recognition, adding this to her most recent award on Staffing Industry Analysts’ “Global Power 150 List.”

“By any metric—be it culture, bottom line results, or otherwise—Natasha and this team stand out,” said Chief Operating Officer Nicole Burleson. “When you invite people to do purposeful work that impacts lives, people will answer the call. We are thrilled to have such an amazing team at Floyd Lee Locums, and a leader who helms our ship with such compassion, courage, and determination. Cheers to this incredible group on being named the Grand Prize Winner as a ‘Best Place to Work’—and to the leader who helped us get there—our very own ‘Women in Business’ winner Natasha Lee.”

In 2022, SC Biz News and the Best Companies Group called out 119 extraordinary companies across South Carolina—from contractors to credit unions. This is the organizations’ 17th year naming honorees, and a ceremony was held on August 18 at the Columbia Metropolitan Convention Center to recognize the recipients. SC Biz News awarded three grand prize winners in their large, medium, and small size employer categories, where Floyd Lee Locums took the mid-sized prize.

Fifty-four women were recognized this year for Charleston Business Magazine’s “Women in Business Awards.” An event was held on August 3 at the Poinsett Club in Greenville, South Carolina, to honor women across the business and entrepreneurial spectrum.
