Texas Partners Honor the 60 Best Companies to Work for in Texas at Awards Luncheon
Austin —Governor Rick Perry honored the 60 Best Companies to Work for in Texas, a statewide competition to recognize companies that were rated by their employees as one of the best companies to work for in Texas.At a luncheon hosted by the Texas Association of Business (TAB), the publishers of Texas Monthly and the Society for Human Resource Management – Texas State Council (TX-SHRM), over 500 business leaders were on hand to honor the winners.
“While it is no secret that Texas is a great place to live, what folks may not know is that Texas is a great place to work said Bill Hammond, TAB President.
Managed by Best Companies Group, the program is a multi-year initiative to motivate companies in the state to focus, measure, and move their workplace environments toward excellence.
Numerous studies show a strong correlation between profitability and creating a good place to work.
The goal of Best Companies to Work for in Texas is to raise the bar among the state’s employers and create excellence and employee satisfaction in the workplace that will attract talented people for years to come. This initiative is integral for Texas to compete in both national and global arenas.
The 60 Best Companies to Work for in Texas initiative is similar to the famous Fortune magazine list. In addition to the positive effect the award has on their employee morale, employee relations, and recruitment, the driving force for companies to join in this program is the remarkable effect that workplace improvements can have on their bottom line.
The selection process was based on an assessment of the companies’ employee policies and procedures and the results of an internal employee survey. The Assessment Findings Report that all participating companies receive enables them to develop plans and implement steps necessary to create a great workplace and continue to improve the performance of their business.
Winners are featured in the February edition of Texas Monthly and can also be viewed on their website at http://www.texasmonthly.com/sections/bestcompanies.
