Acteon companies, 2H Offshore and InterMoor, are pleased to announce that they have both been selected as one of the Houston Chronicle’s Top Workplaces; a list of the best companies to work for in the Houston metro area.
The Top Workplaces are determined based solely on employee feedback. The employee survey is conducted by WorkplaceDynamics, LLP, a leading research firm on organizational health and employee engagement. WorkplaceDynamics conducts regional Top Workplaces programs with 37 major publishing partners and recognizes a list of 150 National Top Workplaces. Over the past year, more than 5,000 organizations and one in every 88 employees in the U.S. have turned to WorkplaceDynamics to better understand what’s on the minds of their employees.
285 companies participated in the program and 150 were selected for the prestigious Top Workplaces award. 2H Offshore placed seventh and InterMoor placed 59th out of 70 in the small company category (1 – 149 employees). In addition, 2H Offshore was awarded a special ‘Communications Award,’ in recognition of the company’s outstanding performance in the Communications section of the survey.
Feedback from 2H employees on the survey included favorable comments on the “approachable” nature of the management team, “tremendous benefits and flexible working hours,” the emphasis put on “knowledge sharing, communication and continued training” for employees and how “new ideas” are encouraged from all levels of staff. 2H Offshore celebrated its 20th anniversary in February 2013 and currently employs more than 300 people globally.
In the survey, InterMoor employees revealed that they valued “InterMoor’s flexible approach to maintaining a work-life balance,” “working alongside dedicated people” and “a sense of pride in the projects InterMoor is involved with.” In addition to employer-provided health and dental plans, InterMoor employees enjoy regular team building activities and a company-matched 401K program. Employees are also supported in training and career advancement opportunities.
David Walters, 2H vice president commented, “At 2H Offshore, we have a strong work ethic, but we greatly believe that our high morale and sense of team spirit play a major role in our success. It is a fun and friendly place to work, and we emphasize the importance of communication and interpersonal relationships through collaborative projects, team work and regular team building activities. This achievement is a credit to each and every one our employees who contribute daily to creating and sustaining our excellent workplace culture.”
“InterMoor is proud and honored to have been awarded a place on the Houston Chronicle’s Top Workplaces list alongside 2H Offshore,” said InterMoor President Tom Fulton. “All the Acteon companies place tremendous value on their employees and therefore employee satisfaction is one of our core principles at InterMoor.”
