University Title Company has maintained its title as one of the Best Companies to Work for in Texas for the sixth consecutive year, earning third place in the small employer category for 2013.

University Title made the Best Companies list for the first time in 2008 with a ranking of 13th among small businesses to work for in the state and climbed five places to 8th place in 2009 and 2012. In 2010, University Title earned 4th place, and the company came in 10th place in 2011. 

 The Best Companies program was created in 2006 and is a project of TEXAS MONTHLY, the Texas Association of Business (TAB), the Texas State Council of the Society for Human Resource Management (TSC-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, its workforce and businesses.

“Being selected as a Best Company to Work for again is overwhelming, and we are blessed!” exclaims Celia Goode-Haddock, Chairman of the Board/CEO of University Title. “Our team members are empowered to produce a great product and to serve our customers as they would like to be served. Whatever we at University Title Company can do to support them and create a safe environment, we are happy to provide.”

 In 1973, it was a startup company of only two employees. University Title has grown to be the largest provider of title insurance in Brazos County and has over 55 employees.  It is well known in College Station/Bryan as a business leader and is one of the largest private enterprises in the area as well. 

According to Karen McCarroll, President/CEO of University Title, “Competing for the Best Companies to Work for in Texas Award involves a process that is an extremely beneficial tool for the leadership, planning and vision of University Title Company. The award is judged mainly on an anonymous employee survey that covers each facet of our corporate culture. We have learned so much over the last several years from the survey and have implemented many positive changes to the team’s daily work environment. If our team is satisfied, we are thrilled. A happy team takes care of its clients. It is a win/win for all.”
