DALLAS - The Dallas Morning News has recognized the Dallas Market Center as one of the Top 100 Places to Work in Dallas-Fort Worth for the third consecutive year in the mid-size companies' category. The best places to work list includes 30 large companies, 35 mid-size companies and 35 small companies.
On an annual basis, Dallas Market Center hosts 200,000 buyers and holds more than 50 trade and special events. The marketplace was founded in 1957 by real estate developer Trammell Crow and is now managed by Market Center Management Company.
According to a press release on the honor, the corporate culture at DMC allows employees to dress casually during non market weeks, listen to music as they work, and provides a paid day off in order to volunteer for a cause of their choice. An open-office design allows creative ideas to flow with ease, encouraging the sharing of ideas amongst employees. DMC offers perks such as holiday pay, including each associate's birthday, as well as monthly office celebrations designated for employees with recent birthdays and/or company anniversaries. DMC has 53 employees who have been with the company for 20 or more years.
To qualify for the Top 100 list, an individual must first nominate a company. Once nominated, company employees are asked to fill out a survey to gauge how they feel about their job and workplace. Nearly 70,000 workers from companies in the Dallas-Fort Worth area filled out questionnaires for this year's Top 100 list.
