'Best Places to Work': Starr Included in AL Honors

SH Enterprises, an umbrella company comprised of several organizations, including Meyer Vacation Rentals and Starr Textile Services - a commercial laundry operation with plants in Foley, AL, and New Orleans - recently was recognized by a regional business publication on a list of top 10 “Best Companies to Work for in Alabama.”

The company received its “Best of” designation in the small-to-midsize company category, according to a news release. Sheila Hodges, founder and board chairman of SH Enterprises; and Vice President Michelle Hodges, attended a July ceremony honoring the top winners, a program sponsored by the Business Alabama magazine. The full list appears in the August edition of the publication.

“The success of SH Enterprises depends upon the quality of the relationships between our company, our team members, our customers, our vendors and the general public,” said Michelle Hodges in the article. She also serves as president and COO of Meyers Vacation Rentals. “In a sense, regardless of a team member’s position, they are SH Enterprise’s ambassadors.”

To qualify for a ranking in the “Best Company to Work for” competition, nominees completed a two-part evaluation/survey. The first part assessed each nominee’s workplace policies, practices, philosophy, systems and demographics. This part of the survey counted for 25% of the total evaluation.

The remaining 75% was recorded in a second section of the survey that measured the employees’ experience with the nominated company. The combined scores were tabulated to determine a company’s final ranking. Click here for details.
