How do we make the 9-to-5 daily work grind in Houston better?

On this edition of Houston Matters, we consider what characteristics make a happier place to work. What factors are most important to employees — from hours, salary, and benefits to the work environment, to the ability to get along with co-workers.

A non-profit organization based in Detroit, called “101 Best and Brightest Sustainable Companies” has tried to categorize the traits that go into making a really great work environment for an employee.ÂThey’ve come up with a list of Houston’s Best and Brightest Companies to work for, based on survey data. Houston Matters’ Edel Howlin will speak with the company founder, Jennifer Kluge, about why she decided to create such a list in the first place. We also talk with a Houston company thatÂrated high onÂtheir list. And we welcome your questions for Dr. Alan Witt, a Professor of Psychology and Management at the University of Houston. His research and practice focuses on identifying the drivers of organizational effectiveness.
