Dallas, Texas—International Risk Management Institute (IRMI) received the honor of being named one of the Top 100 Places to Work in Dallas-Fort Worth by the Dallas Morning News.

Recipients of this award are determined based on an annual WorkplaceDynamics survey completed by hundreds of organizations across Dallas-Fort Worth. Employees respond anonymously to statements regarding their employer’s alignment, connection, effectiveness, leadership, and workplace basics, such as training and benefits. The employers are broken into size bands, and the highest-scoring organizations in each are selected as the top workplaces in Dallas-Fort Worth.

According to the Dallas Morning News, WorkplaceDynamics analyzed answers from over 90,000 employees at more than 300 Dallas-Fort Worth companies for the 2016 selections.

Dallas Morning News business columnist Cheryl Hall said in her article about selecting the top 100 that all employees share similar desires for their workplace. “Employees want to follow respectful leaders with vision and high moral compasses. They want to work in a fun and nurturing environment where back-stabbing isn't permitted and promotions are based on merit. They want to enjoy life away from work. They expect clued-in leadership and leadership that clues them in. Pay and benefits are consistently at the bottom of their priority lists.”

In completing the survey, some IRMI employees shared what they like most about working for the company.

“I work with terrific people.”

“We are allowed to see our visions come to life, and I enjoy working for such a classy and professional organization.”

IRMI President and CEO Jack Gibson shared what it means to him to receive this honor. “I am proud and humbled by the recognition. We have worked hard to build a great culture with engaged employees who focus on providing the best products and services to our customers. This honor validates that we are succeeding with this goal and is certainly an underlying reason for the 11-year average tenure of our employees.”
