At Venterra, we are raising the standard of apartment living through our commitment to exceptional service. Having our company culture noticed outside the organization through workplace awards and recognition is the direct result of an enormous amount of effort on the part of Venterra Experience Leaders. These individuals work tirelessly to create an atmosphere where our employees can learn, grow, and be truly excited about coming into work every single day. This helps us to create the highly rated real estate company you see today.
We are proud that Venterra has been selected again for a Great Place to Work® Institute Award, honoring the Best Medium Workplaces in 2021! Published with FORTUNE, we are #29 in the medium company category (all participating U.S. companies between 100 and 999 employees.) This is the sixth year in a row that Venterra has won this prestigious accolade. Venterra received this great recognition based on the feedback employees provided in our Annual Employee Satisfaction Survey, in which 92% of responding employees said Venterra is a great workplace, resulting in us becoming “Certified” by Great Place to Work® Institute and eligible to be a winner of the award. Given that there are nearly 16 million small and medium businesses in the US and that the evaluation for the list is based mostly on the Employee Survey, it is a true reflection of our employees’ opinions and feelings about working for Venterra, and is an amazing testament to the positive work environment, leadership and values that we’ve strived to create.
Venterra was named one of the 2021 Best Workplaces for Millennials by the Great Place to Work® Institute and FORTUNE! This recognition was the result of employee survey feedback from our millennial team members about their experiences of trust and reaching their full human potential as part of the organization, no matter who they are or what they do. Millennial survey results regarding their daily experiences of innovation, the company’s values, and the effectiveness of their leaders, to ensure they’re consistently experienced also played a factor in Venterra winning this workplace award.
We’ve been recognized as a 2020 Best Workplace for Women by the Great Place to Work® Institute, as published by FORTUNE! Winners were selected based primarily on employee survey results reflecting women’s representation in the organization, their experience in the workplace, and how that experience compares to the experience reported by their male counterparts. Additionally, the recognition accounted for how well represented women are in the workforce and throughout management.
Venterra is honored to have been selected as a winner of the 2018 Great Place to Work® Institute Award honoring the Best Workplaces for Diversity in 2018, as published by FORTUNE. In addition to the degree of representation in the organization, the recognition was based on survey feedback related to the experiences of women, people of color, LGBTQ people, employees who are Boomers or older, and people who have disabilities compared to that of their colleagues with a focus on the trust, pride, and camaraderie experienced in their workplace.
Venterra has been ranked #1 for the regional recognition honoring the 2021 Best Workplaces in Texas, another Great Place to Work® Institute Award! This is the fourth year in a row Venterra has been recognized in the small and medium companies category (companies between 10 and 999 employees). This selective list relies on surveys from Texas employees working at companies of all sizes. Venterra received this great accolade based on the feedback provided in our 11th Annual Employee Satisfaction Survey. The results led to us becoming “Certified” by Great Place to Work® Institute and eligible to win this prestigious award.
We’re among the winners of the Glassdoor Best Places to Work in 2021! For a third time, we’ve been recognized in the small and medium company category. Winning companies are evaluated based on the quality, consistency, and quantity of employee reviews among a number of other factors.
Unlike other awards, there is no self-nomination or application process, instead, it’s entirely based on the feedback our employees have voluntarily and anonymously shared on Glassdoor. Importantly, this means that every US company with a presence on the site is considered for this accolade which makes the recognition so meaningful.
