Venterra Named One of the Best Workplaces in Texas for a Sixth Year in a Row

Venterra Realty has been recognized by FORTUNE magazine & the Great Place to Work Institute as one of the Best Workplaces™ in Texas for a 6th consecutive year, ranking #23 in our size category on the 2023 list!

In the last year, Great Place to Work surveyed companies employing 7.5 million people in the U.S. and received 1.3 million survey responses. More than 100,000 responses were received from employees at companies eligible to be considered for the Best Workplaces™ in Texas list. Eligible companies were required to be headquartered in the state, have at least ten U.S. team members, and to be Great Place To Work Certified™. To be selected, Venterra surpassed rigorous benchmarks and established itself as one of the best companies to work for in Texas.

“Creating a positive work environment for our colleagues is a top priority at Venterra,” said John Foresi, Venterra CEO. “While this recognition may be specific to Texas, we firmly believe that our success transcends regional boundaries. As a team-first company, every colleague plays a vital role in delivering an extraordinary experience to those we serve. We are dedicated to fostering a collaborative environment that nurtures the growth and well-being of everyone involved, providing a space for colleagues to thrive.” 

“Fundamentally, Venterra colleagues embody an extraordinary blend of innovation, passion, and genuine care,” added Venterra Chairman, Andrew Stewart. “They continually strive to make a meaningful impact in the lives of those around them, and their unwavering commitment to fostering care is the driving force behind creating a company culture worthy of this type of recognition.” 

The Great Place to Work survey enables team members to share confidential quantitative and qualitative feedback about their organization’s culture by responding to 60 statements on a five-point scale and answering two open-ended questions.  List rankings are based on this feedback, which Great Place to Work analyzes to determine the extent to which this experience is shared by the full workforce. Great Place to Work measures the differences in survey responses across demographic groups and roles within each organization to assess both the quality and consistency of the employee experience. Statements are weighted according to their relevance in describing the most important aspects of an equitable workplace.  

“Congratulations to the Best Workplaces in Texas,” said Michael C. Bush, CEO of Great Place to Work. “These are companies that understand how putting people first drives performance, productivity, and innovation — essentials in this economy.” 

“Fortune congratulates the Best Workplaces in Texas,” added Fortune Editor-in-Chief Alyson Shontell. “They are leading their industries in employee satisfaction, a critical metric for success in a period of economic uncertainty.” 

Our unique culture has been honored by the Great Place to Work® Institute with a variety of awards in the past. Previous recognitions from the organization include overall Best Workplaces, Best Workplaces in Canada, Best Workplaces in Real Estate, and, most recently, Best Workplaces in Real Estate & Property Development. View all of our previous awards from the Great Place to Work® Institute and learn more about our latest survey results from our U.S. company profile and Canadian company profile.
