Essay:

More than 31 years ago, Insperity Chairman and CEO Paul J. Sarvadi envisioned making business owners' lives easier by taking HR and administrative burdens off their plates. The company has grown from a two-person operation with three initial clients to a publicly traded organization serving more than 100,000 businesses with over 2 million employees. With corporate offices in Houston, Texas, Insperity operates in 61 locations throughout the United States.

Since its beginning, Insperity has recognized the vital role that people play in the success of the organization and designed a corporate culture that is second to none. Establishing a culture that people want to be a part of, expand and develop has been a key to the company’s success. Insperity hires people for their input, not only their output; and most employees view their role as a calling to help small and medium-sized businesses succeed so communities prosper.

With a culture that endorses work-life balance, family friendly values and an effective combination of individual and team contributions, it’s no surprise that Insperity is continually recognized as a great place to work at the regional and local levels, based largely on employee surveys. In Insperity’s hometown, the Houston Business Journal has named the company one of the Best Places to Work 15 times, and the Houston Chronicle has named Insperity one of the Top Workplaces on 7 occasions, which happens to be every year the program has been in existence. In 2016, Insperity ranked No. 1 concurrently on the Houston Chronicle and Houston Business Journal lists, which is no small feat in the nation’s 4th largest city. In addition, Insperity has been ranked as one of the Best Companies to Work for in Texas by Texas Monthly 12 times.

Since 2001, when the company began participating in workplace recognition programs, it has appeared 122 times on the respective lists, reflecting its deep commitment to creating and fostering an exceptional work environment as a preferred employer. The rankings are not only a testament to Insperity’s corporate culture, but they also demonstrate the industry-leading practices that it advocates to more than 100,000 businesses.

“More than 30 years ago, Insperity created a corporate culture by design that remains in place today and exists in all 60 offices throughout the country,” said Paul J. Sarvadi, Insperity chairman and chief executive officer. “It is a great honor to again be recognized by the Houston Chronicle as a top workplace. This No. 1 ranking reaffirms our commitment to our incredible employees and reflects the industry-leading practices that we advocate to our clients.” “It is truly an honor to win the Houston Business Journal’s Best Places to Work award in the Extra-Large Companies category in our hometown for two years in a row,” said Paul J. Sarvadi, Insperity chairman and chief executive officer. “This recognition further confirms our commitment to providing a great place to work for our employees, which extends to the clients we serve throughout the country.”

Insperity offers a very comprehensive benefits package, including medical, dental, vision, and prescription drug coverage; disability insurance; educational assistance; 401(k) program with a 100% match up to 6%; and a very generous PTO policy.

Insperity employees receive 12 hours of paid volunteer time each quarter so they can participate in companysponsored volunteer events or with an organization of their choice. In 2016, 74% of employees volunteered nationwide resulting in almost 58,000 hours equivalent to more than $2 million in philanthropic action; $3.6 million was given in monetary and in-kind charitable donations.

Another benefit is The Insperity Fund – Created in 2004 to help employees who experience a time of crisis which warrants financial assistance due to unforeseen circumstances. Insperity provides corporate contributions to The Fund, but it is primarily sustained by employee donations. In 2016, 34 corporate employees received support from The Fund and employee donations totaled $169,000.
