The Woodlands (Houston), Texas, November 2010 … Benchmark Hospitality International has been named a “Top Work Place” for 2010 by one of the nation’s largest newspapers, The Houston Chronicle.  The paper partnered with Work Place Dynamics, a firm which measures employee work place satisfaction in markets nationally, to determine the 2010 Top Work Place winners, based on employee and company surveys.  Benchmark Hospitality International’s position on the list was #37. 

“I am particularly pleased with this honor for our company,” said Burt Cabaņas, chairman and CEO of Benchmark Hospitality International.  The Houston Chronicle is our hometown newspaper, in addition to being one of the country’s largest and most respected papers.  I am especially pleased that our team at Benchmark Hospitality has created a work place environment that places such a high focus on service and entrepreneurialism, resulting in this recognition.”

According to Work Place Dynamics, top workplaces are better positioned to secure and retain top talent, enhancing their competitive edge within their respective industry.  To determine placement on the Top Work Place list, a company’s employees are surveyed for their opinions, from which an assessment of their employer is developed.  The results of this assessment determine whether a company places on the list and the ranking within the annual listing.  Over 1000 companies have achieved the Top Work Place list nationally.
