About the Best Workplaces in Texas

Published together with Fortune, the Best Workplaces in Texas ranking is based on feedback from more than 100,000 employees at Great Place to Work–Certified organizations with locations in Texas. Employees completed an anonymous Trust Index© survey, answering questions about how frequently they experience the behaviors that create a great workplace. Employees’ answers gauge respect, opportunities for professional development, the connection they feel with their teams and other important workplace traits. Results from the survey are highly reliable, having a 95% confidence level and a margin of error of 5% or less.

A place on this list indicates a company has distinguished itself from peers by creating a Great Place to Work For All™. Rankings reward organizations where not only the majority of their employees experience a great workplace, but these experiences are highly consistent regardless of gender, race/ethnicity, job role or other personal characteristics. Results are considered based on the complexity of the employee population and relative to peer performance.
