We are excited to announce that NAI Partners ranked 5th among Large Companies (100-399 employees) on the Houston Business Journals’ 2021 Best Places to Work (BPTW) list, out of 19 total firms in that category — an impressive jump from #12 last year, not to mention our highest-ever ranking on the BPTW list! Additionally, we continue to remain ahead of our direct competitors, once again ranking ahead of Stream (#11).

We also received envious placement in the print edition, with our ad not only appearing on the same page as the blurb the HBJ wrote about us, but facing the actual list of Large Companies itself!

The full ad and text appear below, along with links to our previous years’ ads.

It takes a certain kind of company—one always putting its clients and people first and boasting rigorous attention to detail and service excellence—to be named a Best Place to Work for eight straight years.

The kind of company that doesn’t just pay lip service to its core values, but actually funnels its key decisions—from strategic initiatives like hiring, and which clients it wants long-term relationships with; to granular choices like celebratory lunches for its talented staff, and the types of finishes it has on the walls of its offices—through every single one.Best Places to Work
