Funeral Directors Life named as one of the 2021 Best Companies to Work for in Texas

ABILENE, TX – Funeral Directors Life was recently named as one of the 2021 Best Companies to Work for in Texas. The awards program was created in 2006 and is a project of Texas Monthly, the Texas Association of Business (TAB), Texas SHRM and Best Companies Group.

This statewide survey and awards program was designed to identify, recognize and honor the best places of employment in Texas, benefiting the state’s economy, workforce and businesses. The 2021 Best Companies to Work for in Texas list is made up of 100 companies.

“We are honored to be recognized for the 7th time as one of the top 100 Best Companies to Work for in Texas,” said Kris Seale, Funeral Directors Life President & CEO. “2020 was a challenging year for our business, as it was for most businesses. But I am so proud of how our people rose to the occasion, adapted, and found solutions for this ‘new normal.’ Because of them, we were able to accomplish so much more than we thought possible during a pandemic. We have a great team that always strives to go above and beyond, and this recognition by Texas Monthly and Best Companies Group is a reflection of that.”

Companies from across the state entered the two-part survey process to determine the Best Companies to Work for in Texas. The first part consisted of evaluating each nominated company’s workplace policies, systems, philosophies, practices, and demographics, worth approximately 25% of the total evaluation. The second part consisted of an employee survey to measure the employee experience, worth approximately 75% of the total evaluation. The combined scores determined the top companies and the final rankings.

The list of the 100 Best Companies to Work for in Texas and how they rank will be announced on May 13, 2021, and the winners will be profiled by Texas Monthly in a special publication.
