Growing Company Noted for Empowering Employees and Honoring Teamwork
AUSTIN, Texas – January 27, 2011 – Award-winning Microsoft IT consulting firm Catapult Systems today announced it was named the number one medium-sized company to work for in the State of Texas by Texas Monthly magazine. The competition, sponsored by the Texas Association of Business, Texas Monthly and Texas State Council of the Society for Human Resource Management, recognizes the top 100 companies to work for in the State of Texas. Catapult Systems was presented with the honor today at the official awards luncheon in Austin, Texas. Keynote speaker, Texas Governor Rick Perry, congratulated the winners. This year marks the third time Catapult Systems has been included on this elite list.
“As a service company, our success is based almost entirely on the quality of our people. So our ability to find, attract, and retain the top talent in our field is a huge competitive advantage,” said Sam Goodner, Catapult Systems CEO. “This award is a tremendous honor and recognizes our passion for building one of the best places to work in the country.”
The Best Companies to Work for in Texas competition recognizes employers in the state who make it a priority to create better workplaces for their employees. The winners were selected by an independent organization that conducted employee surveys during the summer of 2010 to identify companies that recognize the importance of creating cultures where employees love to come to work.
In addition to this recognition, Catapult Systems has a long history of being a stellar workplace. Last year the company was named a “best place to work” five times in top cities including Austin, San Antonio and Dallas, Texas; Tampa, Florida and Denver, Colorado.
