The Houston Chronicle Names Utegration a Winner of the Houston Top Workplaces 2020 Award

Houston, TX – November 13, 2020 – Utegration has been awarded a Top Workplaces 2020 honor by The Houston Chronicle. The list is based solely on employee feedback gathered through a third-party survey administered by employee engagement technology partner Energage, LLC. The anonymous survey uniquely measures 15 drivers of engaged cultures that are critical to the success of any organization: including alignment, execution, and connection, just to name a few.

“In times of great change, it is more important than ever to maintain a connection among employees,” said Eric Rubino, Energage CEO. “When you give your employees a voice, you come together to navigate challenges and shape your path forward based on real-time insights into what works best for your organization. The Top Workplaces program can be that positive outcome your company can rally around in the coming months to celebrate leadership and the importance of maintaining an employee-focused culture, even during challenging times.” 

During the virtual award ceremony on November 12, Utegration was also awarded the Manager’s Award. Linda Schaible, VP, Marketing and Strategic Development of the Houston Chronicle, said, “The Manager’s Award goes to a company that has a management team that listens to its employees. They listen to their concerns and they lead the team to victory.” 

President and CEO of Utegration, Bart Thielbar, said, “Our culture is built on mutual respect, trust and delivering excellent customer service—and has been from the start. We have the best talent in our industry and we mindfully cultivate the great culture that draws and keeps people here.

“As 2020 brought new challenges, our culture became even more important. Being there for one another allows us to do what we do best: deliver customer success as one team. So far this year, the team has delivered 15 software implementation go-lives for our customers—100% remotely. We added many new customers and introduced a major new cloud-based solution. We also continued our focus on learning and development to ensure job satisfaction and professional growth,” said Thielbar. “The leadership team is grateful for the honor of being named a Top Workplace by our own employees.”
