HOUSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--StarTex Power was named a 2010 Top Workplace by the Houston Chronicle on Sunday, the Houston-based energy company’s fifth award as a great place to work since its founding in 2004. The award comes after the recent launch of an Employee Stock Ownership Plan and a continuing culture that fosters employee growth and encouragement.
“Our employees and the service they provide to customers is what sets our company apart from the competition,” said Allison Wall, Chief Operations Officer for StarTex Power. “The StarTex Power “Star Treatment” philosophy of competitive rates, great service and no surprises is not just a marketing slogan – it reflects the values of the company, and results in a highly engaged workforce that believes in the company’s mission.”
The Houston Chronicle sites the top 100 workplaces and winners are determined from anonymous employee surveys. StarTex Power ranked 13 among the 40 Small Companies (as defined by total number of employees), with excellence in the categories of execution through communication, direction for the future, career opportunities, management leadership, and conditions of the working atmosphere and environment.
Marcie Zlotnik, Chairman and Co-Founder, has always made the company culture a top priority. “To be named a Top Workplace by the Houston Chronicle is an honor and a wonderful testament to the environment we have worked so hard to create,” said Zlotnik.
That culture is reflected in colorful ways with office wide decorating contests at various times during the year, celebrations when company goals are achieved, and most importantly, consistent, honest and open communication between employees and management.
“StarTex Power is a great place to work because not only are employees owners, but we are a part of making our own business successful,” said Mara Kasunga, Office of the President Administrator. “As a result, there is a high level of dedication by the staff to our employees and customers.”
