WACO, Texas – (Jan. 26, 2010) – The Dwyer Group has been named one of the Best Companies to Work for in Texas for the third consecutive year. The company ranked 14 among medium-sized companies that were published in the February issue of Texas Monthly.

The Dwyer Group moved up 10 spots from its ranking in 2009.

“It’s true when people say the third time is a charm, because this honor is a direct reflection of how our associates continue to feel about our company,” said Dina Dwyer-Owens, CEO and chairwoman of The Dwyer Group. “Running a good business means creating a great workplace that attracts wonderful people. And this ranking helps us see that mission in action.”

The ranking, promoted by Texas Monthly, is sponsored by the Texas Association of Business (TAB), the Texas State Council of the Society of Human Resource Management (TSC-SHRM) and the Best Companies Group.

The Dwyer Group is one of 85 companies to make this year’s listing, and executives will travel to Austin this week for a special awards luncheon on Jan. 28th to honor the winners.

The annual survey and ranking is designed to identify, recognize and honor the best employers in Texas, benefiting the state’s economy, its workforce and businesses. Companies were judged on their benefits, leadership programs, corporate culture, interviews with company employees and more. To be eligible for the ranking, companies must have a facility in Texas, at least 15 employees in Texas, and a minimum of one year in business among overall criteria.
