The demonstration of that spirit is embodied in our associates’ daily endeavors.”
The winning companies also vie for 11 elite awards, one granted for each category. Also, an overall winner that excelled in all categories will be honored with a “Best of the Best Overall” award.
The elite award winners will be announced during the awards ceremony to be held Monday, April 20, 2015 at the JW Marriott Houston. “The selection, recognition and awarding of this year’s companies allows our organization to showcase their best practices.
