Top Workplaces nomination deadline extended


For the ninth straight year, the American-Statesman is trying to spread the word about the best places to work in Austin.

The response to our call to recognize local employers in the 2018 Top Workplaces of Greater Austin project has been so strong, we are extending the nominating deadline to July 6 to accommodate the demand.

The Top Workplaces of Greater Austin project recognizes Central Texas 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.

We’ll highlight this year’s top companies in a special section of our newspaper this fall and online all year. You can nominate a workplace at www.statesman.com/nominate, or by calling 512-551-0614.

For the workplaces that choose 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 at 151 Austin-area employers. WorkplaceDynamics 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.
