Third - Best Company Award!

Friday, December 4, 2015


KSA was named one of the 2016 Best Companies to Work for in Texas, an honor the firm received in 2014 and 2015 as well. The awards program was created in 2006 and is a collaborative initiative between Texas Monthly, the Texas Association of Business (TAB), the Texas Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) and Best Companies Group. 

This statewide survey and awards program was designed to identify, recognize and honor the best places of employment in Texas. The 2016 Best Companies to Work for in Texas list is made up of 100 companies. The ranking will be revealed for the first time at the Best Companies to Work for in Texas awards dinner and celebration on March 29 in Austin, Texas.

To be considered for participation, companies had 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
•    Be in business a minimum of 1 year

To compete for the award, companies from across the state entered the two-part survey process. 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 rankings. 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.
