HOUSTON, Oct. 18, 2016 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- More than 700 guests joined the Houston Business Journal Oct. 12 at the Hilton Americas Hotel to celebrate the companies honored at the 16th annual Best Places to Work Awards and to find out their rankings.
Combined, there are more than 100 companies in this year's Best Places to Work, and they're divided into four categories based on number of employees. Companies are ranked within each category based on a score compiled from employee surveys.
REI Network, L.P. made it to the list of 50 finalists, coming in 12th best place to work for small companies in Houston, a category that includes companies with up to 100 employees.
Alex Farris Soares, President of REI Network, L.P., commented, "REI fosters a culture of learning and autonomy. Whenever you empower your people to develop their skills, think critically, and follow their passions, they are able to deliver their best work. As we focus on those aspects, we also set a solid foundation for our employees to succeed with competitive compensation and benefits. Those include regular training and collaboration sessions, activity labs, flexible schedule and time off, and volunteering and community engagement opportunities."
Soares continued, "It's a great honor to be recognized. A company begins and ends with its people, so nurturing a positive and passionate work culture is vital to our mission. It's the happiness and satisfaction of our employees that drive our ideas, power our processes, and strengthen our commitment to our customers. We can only go as far as our people—our employees and our customers—will take us."
The employees of nominated companies, with at least 10 employees in Houston, were surveyed by Quantum Workplace. All employees were given the opportunity to take the confidential survey online, and Quantum issued each company a score based on employees' answers.
Employees evaluated their companies in areas such as goals and leadership, communication and support, advancement opportunity and skill development, recognition and compensation, tolerance and flexibility, and embracing innovation and ideas. Companies received scores up to 100, and Houston Business Journal, upon receiving the rankings from Quantum, decides a cutoff for The Lists.
