Neighborly Named Among Best Companies to Work for in Texas for Fifth Consecutive Year
WACO, Texas – (Dec. 1, 2011) – Neighborly, formerly Dwyer Group, has been named one of the Best Companies to Work for in Texas for the fifth consecutive year. Dina Dwyer-Owens, chairwoman and CEO of Neighborly, called it a crowning moment as the company celebrated its 30th anniversary at its annual reunion in Indianapolis this year.
“We are so proud that our associates feel we are one of the best companies to work for in Texas for the fifth year in a row. We strive to maintain a positive and productive workplace that sincerely values its people,” said Dwyer-Owens. “To receive this honor once again on our 30th year of success is proof that we have championed that idea in our corporate culture and we continue to provide a wonderful work environment where people can grow and flourish.”
Neighborly is one of many prestigious companies to be recognized among the Best Companies to Work for in Texas and will be featured in a special issue of Texas Monthly next year. Companies were judged on their benefits, leadership programs, corporate culture, interviews with company employees and more.
“We believe the foundation of our growth and success lies in the dedicated and passionate people who represent us on a daily basis and our unique Code of Values that ensures we work hard but have fun in the process,” Dwyer-Owens added.

The survey and awards program recognizes and honors the best employers in Texas, benefiting the state’s economy, its workforce and businesses.
