Two and 12 – those numbers have a nice ring to them. We are so proud of two and 12. This is the second year Apex Capital is named one of the Healthiest Companies in America by Interactive Health. That means we take the health and wellness of our employees very seriously. What about the 12? Well, this is the 12th year that Apex is named one of the Best Companies to Work for in Texas. We call it our lucky dozen. That honor is quite special because it’s all about our employees. Sarah King, Apex’s Health and Wellbeing Manager, offered some thoughts about the Healthiest Companies in America award. Apex was one of only 151 companies in the United States to earn this award in 2018. That number went down from 184 companies in 2017, when Apex first won. And Shelley Goodrum, Apex’s Chief Human Resources Officer, has watched Apex grow through the years and she’s pleased to know that the Best Companies to Work for in Texas honor reflects keeping all employees happy during that growth.
