HBJ’s Best Places to Work – 2015

Around 800 attendees gathered at the Hyatt Regency in downtown Houston on Oct. 8 for the Houston Business Journal’s 15th annual Best Places to Work Awards.

Colliers International | Houston ranked second this year with a score of 93.1 among midsize companies as Houston’s Best Places to Work.

The Houston Business Journal Best Places to Work List is compiled by Quantum Workplace, who sent a survey to employees of nominated companies and then ranked them by score. The score is based on employees’ thoughts on their company’s corporate culture, amenities, benefits and worker-retention and attraction strategies.


A Culture Decision

I joined Colliers International-Houston 15 years ago after working for 10 years at two of Houston boutique commercial real estate firms. I had interviewed with most of Houston’s and the world’s top commercial real estate firms.

While it was a difficult decision choosing a place to hopefully spend the rest of my career, as these firms all had much to offer and were excellent platforms. One stood out because of its culture and was the determining factor that tipped the scales.

Looking back I made the right decision for me 15 years ago, one that I have never regretted.
