It has been an exciting couple of weeks for our Improving - Houston office. On October 24th, they were named the #3 Best Place To Work by the Houston Business Journal in the medium category. This is the third year in a row that they have been on the list. Vice President Jake Stevenson was on hand to accept the award at a luncheon on behalf of the Houston team.

On November 1st, Improving - Houston was named the #1 Top Workplace by the Houston Chronicle in the small category. For this award, there were 253 companies that qualified to participate and over 81,000 individuals who took the workplace survey. This was the first year that Improving - Houston qualified for the Houston Chronicle Top Workplaces award and President Devlin Liles graciously accepted the award at a dinner gala.
Within the Top Workplaces awards, they were awarded the top-ranking company for the Doer's category, which is their definition of top execution. A common phrase here at Improving is that “Vision Without Execution is Hallucination” and it is that mindset that set us apart from the many other great companies participating in the awards.
The Improving - Houston office was additionally featured on the Houston Chronicle website and print editions for Top Workplaces. The Houston Chronicle interviewed President Devlin Liles about how leadership at Improving helps to create the culture of the best places to work. Q&A with Devlin Liles
For both awards, Improvers were anonymously surveyed about their experience working with the company. Scores are based on corporate culture, amenities, benefits, work and attraction strategies.
Both the Houston Business Journal and Houston Chronicle recognize companies in the Houston area that demonstrate a positive company culture and Employee Appreciation. We are dedicated to creating and maintaining a culture that exemplifies teamwork, excellence and fun.
We are thrilled to be featured on both of these prestigious lists with many other companies who share a similar commitment to making a great place to work.
