Press Releases 01-07-2016
RICHARDSON, Texas – Halff Associates, Inc. (Halff), one of the nation’s leading full-service engineering/architecture consulting firms, announced today that it has been named one of the Top 100 Places to Work in Dallas by the Dallas Morning News and in Austin by the Austin American-Statesman. The Top Workplaces lists are based solely on the results of an employee feedback survey administered by WorkplaceDynamics, LLC, a leading research firm that specializes in organizational health and workplace improvement. Several aspects of workplace culture were measured, including Alignment, Execution, and Connection, just to name a few.
“The Top Workplaces award is not a popularity contest. And oftentimes, people assume it’s all about fancy perks and benefits.” says Doug Claffey, CEO of WorkplaceDynamics. “But to be a Top Workplace, organizations must meet our strict standards for organizational health. And who better to ask about work life than the people who live the culture every day—the employees. Time and time again, our research has proven that what’s most important to them is a strong belief in where the organization is headed, how it’s going to get there, and the feeling that everyone is in it together. Claffey adds, “Without this sense of connection, an organization doesn’t have a shot at being named a Top Workplace.”
Halff’s President, Patrick Kunz, says, “It’s a great honor to have been named one of the Top 100 Places to Work in both the Dallas and Austin markets. Our culture of valuing people, autonomy, teamwork, integrity, and quality fosters an environment where employees feel motivated and dedicated to providing the best solutions for our clients’ challenges. As we continue to grow, Halff remains committed to this strong culture, recognizing that our people are our biggest asset and the greatest driver of our continued success.”
