ATLANTA, Feb. 14, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Global consulting firm North Highland is the best large company to work for in Texas, according to results of a statewide survey published by Texas Monthly magazine. North Highland topped the 2011 list of the 100 Best Companies to Work for in Texas that recognizes the best employers in the state, the ones that make it a priority to create better workplaces for their employees.

The list of the 100 Best Companies to Work for in Texas 2011 — published for the first time in order of their ranking — names companies with the best practices among Texas employers. The 100 Best Companies to Work for in Texas is a project of the Texas Association of Business (TAB), the Texas State Council of the Society for Human Resource Management and Best Companies Group. An awards luncheon, coordinated by the Texas Association of Business, was held in Austin on January 27 recognizing each of the 100 companies. Texas Governor Rick Perry spoke at the special ceremony.

"Being placed at the top of this prestigious list validates the culture we've worked hard to develop and practice within our global firm," said Scott Williams, vice president and office leader for North Highland's Dallas/Fort Worth office.

In 2010, Consulting Magazine ranked North Highland third on its list of the world's "Best Firms to Work For", marking its fourth consecutive year in the magazine's top four. North Highland's consistently high ranking is due, in part, to its employee value proposition of "own your life; own your career; own your company" and its unique local model of client services via its 48 offices around the world. The firm builds strong local businesses because its 2,200 global consultants live and work where their clients do, a unique model that contributes to overall employee satisfaction and retention rates.

"Anyone who's worked for a global consulting firm knows how unique and preferable this model is for reaching a high level of employee satisfaction and retaining a high caliber, in-demand workforce," said Albert Rees, vice president and office leader for North Highland's Houston office.
