Winstead Named Houston Business Journal's #1 Best Place to Work
Houston, TX, Oct. 18, 2013 — In an awards ceremony on Oct. 16, 2013, at the Hilton Americas Hotel, Law firm Winstead PC’s Houston and The Woodlands offices were named the #1 Best Place to Work in the "company with a significant Houston office” category by Houston Business Journal (HBJ).
HBJ honors companies in the Houston region with its 'Best Places to Work' list and event, now in its 13th year. The employees of nominated companies were surveyed by Quantum Workplace, which issued each company a score based on employees’ answers. All employees were given the opportunity to take the confidential survey online.
Employees evaluated their companies on 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 HBJ limited the list to those scoring 85 or above.
More than 106 companies scored 85 out of 100 points, earning a spot on HBJ’s 2013 Best Places to Work list and winners, including Winstead, were featured in the Oct. 18 edition of HBJ.
A message from the managing shareholders of Houston and The Woodlands offices (Greg Erwin, Teresa Schneider and Cheryl Cain Crabbe) and the Houston director of administration Cindy Graves said, "As we said in our submittal, as a law firm, client service is everything. To do the best for our clients we have to have the best people. We do. And we thank each of you very much for all you do for Winstead and the Houston and Woodlands’ offices. YOU’RE NO. 1!"
