The Charlotte Hornets were named among the organizations to receive the Front Office Sports Best Employer in Sports Award presented by FEVO on Tuesday.

“It’s an honor to receive this recognition, because while it is given by Front Office Sports, it is the responses from our team to questions about our organization that ultimately determine the result,” said Hornets President & Vice Chairman Fred Whitfield. “From our chairman to our senior leadership and our entire executive team, we take great pride in making sure that our people feel valued and supported, and it is incredibly rewarding to know our team members have such positive opinions about our organization.”

The Front Office Sports Best Employers in Sports Award, presented by FEVO, was voted on by 1,600 industry professionals and “recognizes organizations across the sports industry that are excelling in the arena of employee relations and are setting a new standard for company leadership.” The companies are recognized as respected organizations that continue to foster an outstanding company culture with a focus on diversity and inclusion, along with a strong work-life balance.

Four major professional teams made the list with the Atlanta Hawks being the only other NBA team as part of the elite group. No Major League Baseball teams made the cut with one team each representing the NFL and NHL respectfully. And no professional teams west of the Mississippi.
