GlobalSCAPE Named One of the Best Companies to Work for in Texas
SAN ANTONIO - GlobalSCAPE, Inc. (NYSE Amex: GSB), a leading developer of secure information exchange solutions, today announced that it has been named as one of the 2011 "Best Companies to Work for in Texas." The statewide survey and awards program identifies, recognizes, and honors the best places of employment in Texas. One hundred companies were selected, all identified as benefiting the state's economy, its workforce, and businesses. The awards program, created in 2006, is a project of Texas Monthly, the Texas Association of Business (TAB), the Texas State Council of the Society for Human Resource Management, and Best Companies Group.
"The Texas Association of Business is proud to honor GlobalSCAPE among the Best Companies to Work for in Texas," said Bill Hammond, TAB's President. "GlobalSCAPE is a shining example of how companies of any size can make it a priority to provide a better workplace."
"It is a tremendous honor to be named one of the best companies to work for in the entire state of Texas," said Jim Morris, president and CEO of GlobalSCAPE. "Our team takes great pride in their work, especially in serving our global customer base. We believe this same perspective should apply throughout our internal operations as well, because energized team members will take great care of our customers. This award recognizes our progress in building and maintaining a culture that is unmatched."
Companies from across the state competed to be named to the 2011 "Best Companies to Work for in Texas" list. The first assessment consisted of evaluating each nominated company's workplace policies, practices, and demographics. The second assessment consisted of an employee survey to measure the employee experience. The combined scores determined the top companies and final rankings.
