HOUSTON, TEXAS [November 4, 2018] – Rockwood has been named a Top Workplace this year by the Houston Chronicle. The Top Workplaces list is based solely on employee feedback gathered through a third-party survey administered by Energage, and measures several aspects of work place culture, including alignment, execution, connection and much more. After winning this exceptional award in 2016 and 2017, Rockwood is proud to receive it again along with some of the most successful, growing companies in Houston.
“We are honored to be recognized by the Houston Chronicle as a Top Workplace for the third year in the row,” said Jennifer Baur, President and CEO of Rockwood. “We have a unique culture, and all of our employees work hard and are passionate about what they do.”
President and CEO Jennifer Baur and COO Mike Blackburn co-founded Rockwood in 1998, and the company specializes in interior window shutters, blinds and decorative sliding barn doors. While there are many aspects of Rockwood that sets the company apart from others, company culture is one of the most important. Employees take pride in Rockwood’s products and come to work every day because they want to be there. They work hard, always have fun, and come together as a team every day, not just for Rockwood, but for each other.
