For the fifth year, the San Antonio Express-News will team up with Workplace Dynamics to recognize the best places to work in the San Antonio area. Winning employers are chosen through employee surveys.
The Top Workplaces program was set up to recognize companies that have a great workplace and to encourage all organizations to improve the quality of their workplace. Becoming a Top Workplace is a great way to attract and retain the best talent.
Companies must employ at least 35 workers to participate in the survey. The top finishers in the categories of large organization (with 500 or more employees), midsize companies (150-499) and small businesses (fewer than 150) will be profiled in an Express-News Top Workplaces special section publishing in October and will receive an online profile on www.mySA.com/topworkplaces. Winners will be announced at an event prior to publication of the special section.
Businesses can use the Top Workplaces logo on company materials and websites to help spread the word about its work environment. The Top Workplaces evaluation is done on the basis of a 22-question employee survey. The surveys can be taken online or on paper, and can be completed in five minutes. All online surveys are conducted free of charge. There is a $1.75 fee for paper surveys to cover processing costs.
Anyone can nominate a company operating in Atascosa, Bandera, Bexar, Comal, Guadalupe, Kendall, Medina or Wilson counties. To nominate a company, call (210) 348-3758 or go to www.mySA.com/topworkplaces. Deadline for nominations is May 23.
Companies will be informed if they are named as a Top Workplace in early July and will receive a summary report of survey results and have the option to purchase more detailed feedback.
