Nina Vaca: A True Inspiration
The turnout at this year’s event was incredible! Hundreds of DFW hotshots showed up in support of the companies they are so proud to work for, and we were thrilled to see everyone there. This year’s guest speaker Nina Vaca, was truly an inspiration as she showed the crowd how to be the voice for others, ways to engage in your civic responsibility and to always be giving back to your community.

Whether they’re helping a fragile newborn move past a rocky start, teaching a senior to manage a chronic condition or providing end-of-life services and counseling, their planning, people and processes exemplify a better way to care. They have an exemplary community care program in place where they partner with assisted living communities to help residents delay or avoid moving to a facility such as a nursing home. They showcase truly unique ways to give back to their community.

Standing Out From The Crowd
In addition to announcing the Top 100 Best Places to Work in Dallas-Fort Worth, 74,500 DFW workers chose three top local CEOs as leaders of the year in the large, midsize and small business categories. Their employees all placed direction from their leaders as the most important quality in making their companies an outstanding workplace. All three CEOs of the Year live up to this. That’s why JP Piccinini, Frost Prioleau and Mike Barnett are this year’s top leaders.
Congratulations to all of our Top 100 Best Places to Work! Your dedication to your employees and our community is what makes DFW one of the fastest growing metroplexes in the nation, and the absolute best place to live and work in the whole world (at least we think so)!
