The Dallas Morning News has published its list of the
top 100 places to work in Dallas, and we are pleased to announce that Key-Whitman ranked 31 in the small
business category. There were 1,149 companies invited to participate in
the Top 100. This is a true honor, and it gratifies us to know that we
are viewed as achieving the standards of excellence that we set for ourselves.
What makes this even more encouraging is the knowledge that
The Dallas Morning News does not pick the winners—company employees do.
Anyone can nominate a company to be on the list, but each company must
grant access to all of their employees. Employees are given a survey,
in which they are asked to decide which of a series of statements apply
to their workplace. Once the results of these surveys are tabulated, the
top 100 list is formed.
An interesting theme has arisen in these surveys. Even in these tough economic
times, pay and benefits are among the least important factors in the quality
of the workplace. Rather than prizing these tangible assets, employees
consistently praise the companies that have good leadership, with bosses
who inspire confidence and encourage communication. Other ways in which
the top companies excel include areas like training, support, workplace
conditions, and high ethical standards.
We at Key-Whitman would like to thank
The Dallas Morning News for this opportunity for our business to be ranked as one of the top 100
places to work in Dallas. Led by Dr. Jeffrey Whitman, and with fifty years
of service as a leading eye care facility, we strive to stay abreast of
the most current innovations in ophthalmology while providing excellence
