Each year companies and non-profits aim to be included in the Fortune Magazine 100 Best Companies to Work For list. Being selected to this elite group is one of the hottest promotional tools companies are using to attract the best workers, increase employee retention rates, and solicit new customers and shareholders.
We have invited representatives of Texas Instruments, 2007 #87; EOG Resources, 2007 #83; and The Methodist Hospital System, 2007 #9; to join us for a panel discussion about what it takes to make the Fortune "100 Best Companies to Work For" list.
The process of applying and landing on this coveted list can be grueling as human resource and corporate communication professionals navigate convoluted guidelines and potential internal roadblocks. The ultimate accomplishment of completing this process is improved business practices and a more friendly work environment that helps increase employee productivity.
Joining us on Wednesday, May 2, at 11:30 a.m. at the Courtyard on St. James Place will be:
