HOUSTON, Dec. 22, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- David Weekley Homes, the nation's largest privately-held home builder, is honored to be named to the inaugural "Best Workplaces for Camaraderie" list through a joint survey by Great Place to Work® and FORTUNE magazine.
To compile the inaugural list of the most fun workplaces, Great Place to Work polled more than 250,000 employees at nearly 600 companies to find out which organizations have the best personal connections among staff, how comfortable people feel being themselves at work, and the company's overall friendliness and cooperative nature.
"Our team members work extremely hard to delight our customers and provide a high-quality home buying experience. They often put in long hours to make sure our buyers are satisfied and continually find time for them long after they've closed on their new home," said Robert Hefner, vice president of Human Resources for David Weekley Homes. "We're pleased to be named one of the "Best Workplaces for Camaraderie" because it shows that our team members not only work hard, they also play hard and really enjoy their work life."
In 2015, David Weekley Homes also ranked 2nd on the "100 Best Workplaces for Millennials" list, 14th on the "100 Best Workplaces for Women" list, and earned a spot on the "10 Best Companies for Baby Boomers" list.
