HOUSTON, TX (September 9, 2015): David Weekley Homes recently ranked on the “10 Best Companies for Baby Boomers” list, released by FORTUNE magazine and Great Place to Work®. This inaugural list, which is derived from the “100 Best Companies to Work For” list, uses survey results from employees over 55 years of age to disclose how they rate their workplace.
Companies on the “10 Best Companies for Baby Boomers” list had the top Trust Index© employee survey scores from the respondents who identified themselves as being 55 years or older, according to workplace research site, Great Rated™. Trust Index scores reflect the average response of employees who measure trust, pride and camaraderie within a company.
