Looks like fourth time’s the charm.
In its annual list of Top Companies to Work For, Dallas Morning News has again named Service First as a recipient, the fourth time that the company has received this honor. This year, Service First was awarded #26 among midsize companies, based on nominations and votes.
“Over 2000 companies in DFW are surveyed each year, and for Service First to consistently be ranked in the top 100 validates that what we’re doing matters. We’re making a difference to our community and to our employees,” said Regional Sales Director John Donnelly. “What people may not know is this is not a “buy your way in” award. Instead it is a blind survey to our employees that provide true and honest results. It makes me proud to work for Service First.”
Much of Service First’s success is tied to its commitment to its employees. The company places a high value on coaching its team ad also with providing opportunities for company and community engagement. Two initiatives of note are the annual Fall Cause, benefitting law enforcement officers, and the new company Run Challenge, a virtual race to promote employee fitness.
“Everyone wants to work for a company that makes a difference. Our Fall Cause is designed to do that by reaching our local communities, while internal activities are frequently designed to engage our employees,” said Donnelly. “A great thing we just started is a run challenge for anyone who wants to participate. It’s something fun, social, engaging and allows us to support our company model, One Team One Mission. We are better together and this helps bring us together even more.”
According to the Dallas Morning News, Top Places To Work nominations are solicited each spring. Anyone can nominate a company — a worker, the CEO, even someone outside the company. Each firm must have at least 50 local employees to enter. Local workers are defined as those in 10 counties: Dallas, Tarrant, Denton, Collin, Ellis, Johnson, Kaufman, Parker, Rockwall and Wise.
To qualify as a Top 100 company, at least 35 percent of a firm’s workers must fill out an anonymous survey. Firms with 85 employees or fewer must have at least 30 responses. Energage analyzed the answers from 74,500 employees at 289 participating Dallas-Fort Worth companies this year to determine the rankings.
