Dallas, TX—Highland Springs, the Erickson Living retirement community, was named as one of the Best Companies to Work for in Texas for 2016. The awards program is a project of Texas Monthly, the Texas Association of Business (TAB), the Texas Society for Human Resources Management (SHRM) and the Best Companies Group. Created in 2006, this statewide survey is designed to identify and honor the best places of employment in Texas that benefit the state's economy, workforce and business environment. One hundred workplaces made the final list of Best Companies to Work for in Texas, and their official rankings will be revealed at the Texas Association of Business (TAB) Best Companies to Work for in Texas Awards Dinner & Celebration on March 29 in Austin. "As we prepare to celebrate our tenth anniversary next year, this recognition earned by Highland Springs confirms what I see every day," described Matt Neville, Executive Director. "Serving the residents and their families is the number one priority for our employees, and we do it with a mission-centered culture that fosters inclusion and celebrates life." "We have a highly engaged workforce, and it is an honor and privilege to work with such a fabulous team," stated Mr. Neville. Highland Springs is a non-profit continuing care retirement community located on an 89-acre campus in North Dallas. Its eight hundred (800) residents are served by a total workforce of over four hundred (400) full- and part-time employees. In 2013, the community opened what has become a 5-star rated (by CMS) extended care neighborhood.
