Top 10 Stories of 2016

#2 and #1

November, 2016

It’s not surprising that the two stories below ranked second and first in our top 10 stories of 2016. First off, we had a tremendous amount of feedback when “Living Paycheck to Paycheck in Paradise” was first published and it was widely-shared on social media as well. Secondly, our annual “Best Places To Work” event is one of – if not – the biggest celebration we put on every year. We hope you enjoyed reflecting on the year’s most popular stories according to web traffic with us. We also highly suggest taking advantage of the offer below and giving the gift of a Hawaii Business subscription to a business person, entrepreneur or student in your life. Mahalo for reading!

I was fortunate to find people who were willing to be so open and honest about how much they make, how much they spend, and how they managed their lives living close to minimum wage in Hawaii.”

There are 78 questions and open-ended statements, and the employee responses make up 75 percent of a company’s score. The rest of the score is based on 80 questions answered by the HR department about benefits, working conditions and more.”
