"The Top Workplaces award is about much more than recognition and celebration,"
"We are so proud to be recognized as one of the Top Workplaces in Austin for nine consecutive years. This ranking means so much to us because it reaffirms that we're fostering an atmosphere where our employees know that they are valued and feel invested enough in our organization to provide feedback." said Patrick Watkins, President, Watkins Insurance Group. "As Watkins Insurance Group nears the end of our 70th anniversary celebration, we've seen first-hand that success in business depends on providing the very best in client care. To provide that level of care, each employee must strive in their individual efforts to meet that goal. Simply put, I believe that an organization that provides the best for its team will have a team that provides the best for its customers."
Watkins HR Manager, Kimberly Vasquez, adds: "We like to recognize and celebrate who we are as a company. We have a list of thirty-five behaviors titled The Watkins Way. These behaviors represent the general operating norms of the company and align with our core values. The behaviors are a roadmap to our culture.
