Fidelis Companies, LLC was recently named number 13 of the 2014 Best Companies to Work for in Texas in the Small Employer Category. The awards program was created in 2006 and is a project of Texas Monthly, the Texas Association of Business (TAB), Texas SHRM and Best Companies Group.

This statewide survey and awards program was designed to identify, recognize and honor the best places of employment in Texas, benefiting the state’s economy, workforce and businesses.  The 2014 Best Companies to Work for in Texas list is made up of 100 companies. Fidelis Companies, LLC has been named one of the Best Companies to Work for in Texas.

Fidelis Companies offers contract services in their Fidelis IT, Fidelis BioPharm and Fidelis Engineering divisions and offers direct hire services in Fidelis BioPharm and Fidelis Engineering. The company’s new website will offer information for both clients and prospective consultants and candidates in the specialized areas of ERP Systems, BioPharm and Engineering, detailing each division’s area of expertise.

“This was a big accomplishment for our company and our employees. To be recognized on such a large scale as one of the best companies to work for in the state of Texas is something we have striven for since opening our doors 17 years ago.” Karen Richards, President and CEO

To be considered for participation, companies had to fulfill the following eligibility requirements:

– Have at least 15 employees working in Texas

– Be a for-profit or not-for-profit business or government entity

– Be a publicly or privately held business

– Have a facility in the state of Texas

Companies from across the state entered the two-part survey process to determine the Best Companies to Work for in Texas. The first part consisted of evaluating each nominated company’s workplace policies, systems, philosophies, practices, and demographics. This part of the process was worth approximately 25% of the total evaluation. The second part consisted of an employee survey to measure the employee experience. This part of the process was worth approximately 75% of the total evaluation. The combined scores determined the top companies and the final ranking. Best Companies Group managed the overall registration and survey process in Texas and also analyzed the data and used their expertise to determine the final rankings. 

The rankings were revealed for the first time at the Best Companies to Work for in Texas event on Tuesday, April 1, 2014 at the Hyatt Regency in Austin, and will also be profiled by Texas Monthly in a special publication that will be released in conjunction with the event.

A little about Carolyn…

Carolyn is originally from Battle Creek, MI but packed up her mom’s old minivan one day and never looked back! She landed in Dallas seven years ago and joined the Dallas Police Department, which she found beyond rewarding during her time on the force. As an officer, she was part of a unit that ran high-level warrants alongside federal agencies, among other responsibilities.

As you can imagine, Carolyn saw some very interesting things during her career as a police officer and built some amazing friendships, but after several years on the police department she was ready to move onto the next chapter in life.

While living in Michigan, Carolyn played ice hockey while growing up, even playing the Junior Olympics! Now that she has hung up her skates, she can now be found with her nose in a book or at the gym doing weight training.


Please welcome, Carolyn Hentchel!
