This year's list of 56 North Texas-based companies represents businesses large and small, public and private. The element that connects them is their focus on employee engagement and emphasis on job satisfaction, a positive working environment and community service — with a tinge of fun.
Scores on an employee survey administered by independent research firm Quantum Workplace determined placement on the Best Places list.
The companies will be honored at a luncheon on Sept. 27, when the exact rankings will be revealed, and profiled in a special publication on Sept. 28. More details are available on the Best Places to Work website.
