Dallas – October 17, 2019 – Granite Properties, a commercial real estate investment, development and management company, announced today that it was recognized by Great Place to Work and FORTUNE as one of the 2019 Medium Workplaces for the eighth time in a row. The ranking considered more than 189,000 employees at Great-Place-to-Work-Certified organizations, who each responded to 60 survey questions anonymously rating their employers. Granite Properties took the # 39 spot on the list.

“We’re proud to be recognized as one of the Best Workplaces in the country for the eighth time in a row. Granite was founded in 1991, with the focus on creating long term business success and durability by building a culture that is based on relationships and putting people first,” said Michael Dardick, CEO of Granite Properties.

Granite’s purpose statement is “Inspiring People to Flourish Through the Places We Create.” Granite believes that work should fit into life, not the other way around.

People are top of mind when making decisions about adding new benefits, building design and the amenities offered in and around the communities where Granite operates.

“All of our team members help create innovative office communities with unique experiences to help our customers be productive, grow and connect to one another. There are no short cuts to being a great company and we’re proud to have created a great workplace that will help us continue to thrive together and as a company in the future,” said Greg Fuller, President & COO of Granite Properties.

About 38% of Granite’s employees have been with Granite 10 years or more, and 15% for more than 20 years. Long employee tenure is a testament to how Granite treats its team members. Granite offers several programs that reflect that Granite cares about its employees as people, not just workers. To support its team members and their families, Granite offers 100% company-paid parental and caregiver leaves. Granite also offers comprehensive healthcare and wellness programs to encourage a healthy lifestyle and provides a wellness reimbursement program ($500/year for wellness-related expenses). Through a wellness program called GLife, Granite’s team members across all markets are given opportunities to participate in activities and events that promote healthy living inside and out, covering the physical, financial, environmental, emotional and social aspects of life.

“Small and medium-sized businesses have a tremendous influence on the US economy and workforce,” said Michael C. Bush, CEO of Great Place to Work. “Organizations like Granite Properties have found the key not only for winning top talent against their larger competitors, but also for playing a leadership role in dramatically improving the day-to-day experience of US labor conditions by creating great workplaces where everyone can succeed regardless of who they are or what job they perform.”

Granite has been recognized by Great Place To Work as one of the country’s Best Workplaces for the past eight years and Best Workplaces in Texas for the past three years.  Granite was also ranked as Best Workplaces for Women three times as well as Best Workplaces for Giving Back and for Flexibility.
