by Mario Tarradell | January 4, 2018
We did it again! We happily and humbly announce that we have been named one of the 2018 Best Companies to Work for in Texas. This is the 11th year Apex Capital has been honored for its warm and friendly office atmosphere, its emphasis on employee happiness, and its sought-after customer service. The awards program was created in 2006 and is a project of Texas Monthly, the Texas Association of Business (TAB), Texas SHRM and Best Companies Group.
The purpose of this statewide survey and awards program: To identify, recognize and honor the best places of employment in Texas benefiting the state’s economy, workforce, and businesses. Apex participates in the Best Companies to Work for in Texas two-part survey every year. That qualifies us for the award, yes, but even more important, it gives us an amazing opportunity to receive feedback that helps us get better.
Where Did Apex Rank? Stay Tuned!
Where did we rank in the list of 100 companies? The 2018 Best Companies to Work for in Texas rankings will be announced March 6, 2018, and an event will be held by the Texas Association of Business for all honorees on March 8, 2018 at Circuit of the Americas, Del Valle. We can’t wait to know!
All companies participating must have at least 15 employees working in Texas, be a for-profit or not-for-profit business or government entity, be a publicly or privately held business, have a facility in the state of Texas, and be in business a minimum of one year. Check, check, check, check and check.
Great Employees That Always Do the Right Thing
But here’s what we are most proud of: We foster an environment of employee camaraderie, stick to high client standards inspired by core values that are about always doing the right thing, and remain active in the community. We do charitable work with non-profit organizations such as The Pythian Home, Greater Fort Worth Susan G. Komen, Tarrant Area Food Bank, Ronald McDonald House of Fort Worth, Cancer Care Services, and many more.
David Baker, Apex Capital President, started Apex 22 years ago with one passionate goal, “to create a company where people would leave work at the end of the day and go home and tell their kids how they made a difference in the life of someone that day.”
‘Apexers’ Are Part of a Big Family
This is exactly why Apex employees are dubbed “Apexers.” They are immediately part of a big family. Apex takes care of its family by embracing employee wellness through an extensive program, by offering tuition reimbursement for professional advancement, by catering month-end lunches, by rewarding our employees with quarterly profit sharing bonuses, and by celebrating company milestones.
The Best Companies to Work for in Texas nominating process has two parts. The first 25% consists of evaluating each company’s workplace policies, systems, philosophies, practices, and demographics. The second 75% is the employee survey to measure employee experience. The combined scores determine the top companies and the final rankings.
In addition to the Texas Association of Business Best Companies to Work for in Texas Awards Dinner and Celebration on March 8, 2018 at the Circuit of the Americas, Del Valle, the winners will also be profiled by Texas Monthly in a special publication that will be released in conjunction with the event.
