November 08, 2010
In the annual Houston Chronicle survey of area companies, The Gillman Automotive Group was recognized as one of the Top 100 Workplaces. The ranking, based on a study done by the research group Workplace Dynamics, included 1,352 for-profit and nonprofit organizations, made up of small, medium, and mid-size establishments.
According to Patrick York, Gillman Auto Group Chief Operating Officer, “We were the only privately held business to be ranked among the Top 100 Workplaces. We were the only automobile dealer on the list as well. Gillman has always been an industry leader in providing team members with top facilities, a strong benefit package, and opportunity for advancement.”
In selecting the 100 Houston-area companies as great places to be employed, Workplace Dynamics sorted through more than 50,000 responses from individuals who participated in the study. The awards were presented at a special evening event held on November 4th in downtown Houston.
Stacey Gillman Wimbish, President of the Gillman Auto Group, noted, “The recognition was for our Houston and Fort Bend dealerships along with our corporate offices. The same policies, organizational spirit, and determination to provide an exceptional workplace environment are seen in our San Antonio and Rio Grande Valley locations as well.”
Jody Valentine, Director of Human Resources said “What really makes this company is our employees. Mutual respect between fellow employees and customers, along with dedicated hard work, makes Gillman Automobile a great place to work.”
This survey is sponsored annually by the Houston Chronicle newspaper and is recognized as one of the top evaluation programs in the country.
