Valor, a Fort Worth-based specialty asset management company with expertise in providing mineral management and oil and gas outsourcing, is honored to be ranked No. 1 on Fort Worth Inc. Magazine’s “Best Workplaces.” This awards program is an annual competition, created in partnership with Workforce Research Group, featuring companies with unique and admirable corporate cultures – places where employees are proud to work. This is Valor’s second year to place in the Small Employer category, leaping to the top of the list from its previous No. 12 ranking in 2022.
“As Chief Operating Officer, I couldn’t be more grateful for all our employees who not only strive to make Valor a unique workplace but also a vibrant community where excellence thrives,” said Hanna Howard. “We continue to build upon the foundation of Valor’s shared core values as we relentlessly pursue innovation and growth while maintaining a strong, supportive culture.”
Fort Worth Inc.’s Best Workplaces Awards are now in their seventh year, honoring businesses in the Fort Worth community who cultivate transparent communication, an engaging environment, and employee empowerment. Nominees participate in a two-part survey, judged independently of the magazine’s staff by a research firm known for more than 20 Best Workplace programs across North America. Organizations vying for this award are invited to submit an assessment to capture specific details on policy and practices, while feedback from employees regarding their experiences in the workplace is conducted via anonymous surveys.
In one of the more meaningful efforts to foster and maintain a strong sense of community in the workplace, Valor employees are provided with access to many local events and outings. On an annual basis, employees and their families are invited to attend the Fort Worth Stock Show and Rodeo, TCU home football games, and Texas Rangers’ MLB games – all compliments of Valor. The company also prioritizes providing employees with ample benefits, consisting of employer-sponsored health insurance, 401k program, paid holidays, generous PTO, paid maternity/paternity leave, flexible scheduling, and a wide variety of career development opportunities. As Valor continues to grow, becoming one of the top employers in Fort Worth, the company strives to add new and innovative benefits and perks each year.
