Houston, Texas (PRWEB) December 31, 2012
Houston-based risk management firm, Iscential, was recently named as one of the 2013 Best Companies to Work for in Texas. The awards program was created in 2006 and is a project of Texas Monthly, the Texas Association of Business (TAB), the Texas State Council of the Society for Human Resource Management (TSC-SHRM) and Best Companies Group.
“We are truly honored to be named one of Texas’ “Best Companies to Work For”, says Iscential CEO Warren Barhorst. “It’s really a testament to our incredible employees and management team—the secret to our success.”
This statewide survey and awards program was designed to identify, recognize and honor the best places of employment in Texas, benefiting the state's economy, its workforce and businesses. The 2013 Best Companies to Work for in Texas list is made up of 100 companies and to be considered for participation, each was required to fulfill the following eligibility requirements:
- Have at least 15 employees working in Texas;
- Be a for-profit or not-for-profit business or government entity;
- Be a publicly or privately held business;
- Have a facility in the state of Texas; and
- Must be in business a minimum of 1 year.
Companies from across the state entered the two-part survey process to determine the Best Companies to Work for in Texas. The first part consisted of evaluating each nominated company's workplace policies, systems, philosophies, practices, and demographics. This part of the process was worth approximately 25% of the total evaluation. The second part consisted of an employee survey to measure the employee experience. This part of the process was worth approximately 75% of the total evaluation. The combined scores determined the top companies and the final ranking. Best Companies Group managed the overall registration and survey process in Texas and also analyzed the data and used their expertise to determine the final rankings.
The rankings will be revealed at the Best Companies to Work for in Texas gala on Tuesday, March 19, 2013 at the Hyatt Regency in Austin and will be listed in the April 2013 issue of Texas Monthly, which will be delivered to subscribers and on the newsstand in late March. Texas Monthly will also produce a special publication profiling the winning companies to be released in conjunction with the event.
