LONGVIEW, TX – Longview Regional Medical Center was recently named as one of the Best Companies to Work for in Texas 2011. The awards program was created in 2006 and is a project of TEXAS MONTHLY, the Texas Association of Business (TAB), the Texas State Council of the Society for Human Resource Management (TSC-SHRM) and Best Companies Group.
This statewide survey and awards program was designed to identify, recognize and honor the best places of employment in Texas. The Best Companies to Work for in Texas 2011 list is made up of 100 companies. Longview Regional CEO Jim Kendrick said, "We are honored to receive this distinction, given that the employees themselves provided the feedback to earn this recognition. We strive to hire and retain the best in the industry, and this award reflects well upon their experiences as members of the Longview Regional staff."
Companies from across the state entered the two-part process to determine the Best Companies to Work for in Texas. The first part consisted of evaluating each nominated company's workplace policies, practices, and demographics. This part of the process was worth approximately 25% of the total evaluation. The second part consisted of an employee survey to measure the employee experience. This part of the process was worth approximately 75% of the total evaluation. The combined scores determined the top companies and the final ranking. Best Companies Group managed the overall registration and survey process in Texas and also analyzed the data and used their expertise to determine the final rankings.
Longview Regional Medical Center will be recognized and honored at the Best Companies to Work for in Texas awards ceremony on Thursday, January 27, 2011 as part of the Texas Association of Business 2011 Annual Conference in Austin, Texas. The rankings will also be released in a special advertising section of the February 2011 issue of TEXAS MONTHLY.
