Company’s outstanding culture cited in Dallas Morning News survey
DALLAS – The Dallas Morning News named TXU Energy among the top 100 companies to work for in its annual “Top 100 Places to Work” competition, which “celebrates employers who go the distances for their staffs,” according to The Dallas Morning News website.
In its first year of participation in the survey, TXU Energy placed No. 21 in the large company category (more than 500 employees) among over 315 competitors in the small, midsized and large company categories.
“We couldn’t be more pleased to celebrate this honor with the people who make this such a great place to work every single day,” said Jim Burke, chief executive officer at TXU Energy. “Competition and teamwork are in our blood and it helps us maintain a culture that attracts great people who know how to exceed our customers’ expectations and have lots fun along the way.”
Approximately 80 percent of TXU Energy’s workforce responded to the anonymous survey conducted by third-party Workplace Dynamics. Comprised of 22 questions, the survey asked employees to answer how true they believe certain statements to be about topics such as company values, organizational health, work-life balance, leadership, culture and corporate engagement.
The rank order of the top 100 companies was unveiled at The Dallas Morning News Top 100 Places to Work banquet on Friday, Nov. 14, where Dallas Mayor Mike Rawlings delivered a keynote message driving home the importance of centering a business around its people, building a culture of reward and recognition, and fostering an environment of creativity and competition.
Headquartered in Irving, TXU Energy is the largest retail electricity provider in Texas, serving more than 1.7 million customers.
The rankings and overall results are featured in the Top 100 Places to Work 2014 online and in a special publication inserted in The Dallas Morning News on Sunday, Nov. 16.
