The Whitaker Companies Named Best Places to Work by The Houston Business Journal

Houston, TX – October 2020 – The Whitaker Companies has once again been selected as one of The Houston Business Journal’s Best Places to Work in Houston for a third consecutive year.

Based solely on employee feedback collected by Quantum Workplace, Whitaker ranks #11 Best Place to Work in Houston in the small – medium company category. The Houston Business Journal cited Whitaker’s culture, virtual office options, work life balance, latest technology, stock sharing, outstanding benefit program, awards and recognition programs and its family environment all as selection criteria that pushed Whitaker to the top.

“We are very pleased to have earned this award for our third year in a row,” said Bruce Whitaker, President of The Whitaker Companies. “The double whammy of the oil and gas downturn and the pandemic was very daunting to our esprit de corps and commitment to our vision. I’m very proud of our team’s responses to these challenges. Our future looks bright!”
