InterMoor, a leading provider of mooring services, foundation solutions, and offshore installations in subsea services group Acteon, has been awarded a 2017 Top Workplaces honor by The Houston Chronicle.

The Top Workplaces lists are based solely on the results of an employee feedback survey administered by Energage, LLC (formerly WorkplaceDynamics), a leading research firm that specializes in organizational health and workplace improvement. Several aspects of workplace culture were measured, including Alignment, Execution, and Connection, just to name a few.

“The Top Workplaces award is not a popularity contest. And oftentimes, people assume it’s all about fancy perks and benefits.” says Doug Claffey, CEO of Energage. “But to be a Top Workplace, organizations must meet our strict standards for organizational health. And who better to ask about work life than the people who live the culture every day—the employees. Time and time again, our research has proven that what’s most important to them is a strong belief in where the organization is headed, how it’s going to get there, and the feeling that everyone is in it together. Claffey adds, “Without this sense of connection, an organization doesn’t have a shot at being named a Top Workplace.”

This year, 2,317 companies in the Houston area were nominated and only 150 made the list. In the survey, InterMoor employees shared that they appreciated the fact that new ideas and different points of view are frequently encouraged at InterMoor. In addition to employer-provided health and dental plans, InterMoor employees are awarded with regular team building activities and a company-matched 401K program.

“We are proud and honored to have been nominated by our employees for a spot on The Houston Chronicle’s Top Workplaces list,” said InterMoor president Tom Fulton.

“Despite a challenging industry downturn, our group has been able to maintain a positive and can-do attitude throughout. We strongly believe that our employees’ wellbeing is key to our strong work ethics and, consequently, to our success.”

The Houston Chronicle published the complete list of Top Workplaces on Sunday, November 5th.
