Our employees have spoken! On June 28, 2018, Blacklidge was honored with 2018’s Best Places to Work in Mississippi award in the medium-sized companies category. Sponsored in part by the Mississippi Business Journal, winners are determined through an objective, third-party analysis of anonymous survey results completed by the company’s workforce. The fact that this honor is a reflection of the love, care and commitment of our employees makes winning so much more meaningful.
“There is nothing that means more to our leadership team than winning a company-wide award that reflects that our team members love where they work,” said Jarrod Gray, Chief Financial Officer. “We will continue working hard to enhance the working environment we provide.”
Executive Chairman Brittany Blacklidge echoed Gray’s sentiment. “We were very honored and humbled to attend the awards luncheon, much less win first place.”

Being recognized as one of Mississippi’s Best Places to Work is a huge honor and the direct result of our leadership’s hard work. “Our leadership has worked incredibly hard to build trust within the organization and are always looking to serve, learn, and improve as individuals and as part of a high-performance team,” said Brittany Blacklidge. “It is an exciting time to work at Blacklidge and we believe the best is yet to come.”
After Blacklidge’s big win, the bar has been set. So, how can we top being one of Mississippi’s best employers? Brittany Blacklidge believes that “there’s no reason our South Mississippi-based company cannot be the best place to work in the nation. And I believe that our leadership is up for the challenge.”
