Since Glassdoor announced its Employees’ Choice Awards for the Best Places to Work in 2014, companies have been loud and proud when it comes to showcasing this exciting news. From social media updates to physical banners, the 50 large companies and the 50 medium-sized companies on each list have turned up the creativity to share with everyone that they are a Best Place to Work.
With more than 5,000 employees and hundreds of locations worldwide, Texas Roadhouse wanted to find a unique way to show how proud the company is to have employees who love working there. The restaurant chain decided to decorate each location with “People <3 Working Here” stickers, letting patrons, potential employees and current employees know how proud the company is to be a Best Place to Work—according to employees themselves.
Texas Roadhouse also freshened up uniforms, giving servers a little extra flair and something to be proud of as they serve up those famous fall-off-the-bone ribs and legendary margaritas.
The best part is, when Glassdoor employees visited the Texas Roadhouse in Union City, CA, we found that the reviews employees share online are on par with what staff members really had to say.
“It’s like having your social group built-in to your job,” remarked a server working the lunch shift. “I come to work every day and hang out with my friends.”
Another server with a smile on his face and a “people <3 working here” patch on his shoulder said his favorite part about his job is “the energy.”
Finally, the Texas Roadhouse restaurant manager also shared with us that he’s very proud of this achievement, attributing the win to “great employees, some of whom started with the company bussing tables and have since moved up to managerial positions.”
A special shout out to the Union City, CA Texas Roadhouse for letting Glassdoor come by and see for ourselves what all the pride is really about from the employer and employee perspective.
