On December 8, 2015, the National Association for Business Resources named the City of Houston as one of the Best and Brightest Companies to Work For in the Nation for 2015.
Candidates were assessed by an independent research firm that reviewed a number of key measures relative to other nationally recognized winners. They include compensation, benefits and employee solutions; employee enrichment, engagement and retention; employee education and development; recruitment, selection and orientation; employee achievement and recognition; communication and shared vision; diversity and inclusion; work-life balance; community initiatives; and strategic company performance.
“Nationally recognized award recipients keep innovative human resource initiatives at the forefront of their company culture and make it a priority to consider their workforce as an essential aspect in their company success. Our association is proud to recognize and honor these winning companies for this impressive achievement,” said Jennifer Kluge, NABR president.
NABR also named the City of Houston as one of the Best and Brightest in Wellness Companies in the Nation for 2015.
Company entries are examined statistically for quantitative data and examined on a point system based upon criteria to benchmark and improve wellness program effectiveness. They include outcomes, analysis and tracking, participation and incentives, benefits and programs, leadership, employee input, culture and environment.
"Our list of nationally recognized companies is impressive. Having a healthy and happy workforce leads to a healthy company bottom line. This year’s winning companies represent high standards and an exceptional commitment to healthy employees, healthy families and a healthy community," Kluge said.
