Have a great workplace? Tell us about it


Help us spread the word about the best places to work in Austin.

Nominations are now open for the American-Statesman’s 2018 Top Workplaces of Greater Austin project.

The project recognizes employers that stand for the best in leadership, vision, an employee-centered culture and other qualities.

Any employer is eligible — private company, nonprofit, government or school — as long as it has 50 or more employees in Central Texas. Anyone can submit a nomination, including employees, customers, vendors and the company itself.

If a company agrees to participate, our partner in this effort — Energage, an Exton, Pa.-based company with expertise in employee engagement surveys — will conduct anonymous surveys of employees, then compile the information for us.

Last year’s project involved surveys of more than 24,000 workers from more than 150 Austin-area employers. Energage analyzed the results and came up with the list of the top 100 Austin-area employers, grouped in three categories based on the number of local employees.

We’ll highlight this year’s top companies in a special section of our newspaper in November and online all year.

The nomination deadline is June 8. You can nominate a workplace at www.statesman.com/nominate, or by calling 512-551-0614.
