Companies from across the state entered the two-part survey process to determine the Best Companies to Work for in Texas. The first part of the evaluation process consisted of analyzing each nominated company's workplace policies, systems, philosophies, practices, and demographics, which accounted for approximately 25 percent of the total evaluation.
