BSR Named Among 2017 Best Places to Work in Arkansas by Arkansas Business
Little Rock, AR (July 24th, 2017): BSR announced today that it has been named one of the best places to work in Arkansas for 2017 by Arkansas Business and the Best Companies Group. The Best Places to Work distinction was designed to identify and honor the best employers in Arkansas, benefiting the state’s economy, workforce and businesses. Companies from across the state entered the two-part process to determine the Best Places to Work in Arkansas. The first part consisted of evaluating each nominated company's workplace policies, practices, philosophy, systems and demographics, while the second consisted of an anonymous internal survey to measure the employee experience.
“The Best Places to Work designation is a testament to the great team we have here at BSR,” said BSR’s CEO John Bailey. “While most of our properties are outside of the state of Arkansas, the bulk of our corporate employees are right here in Little Rock, this will certainly mean a lot to them. It is also a well-deserved acknowledgment of the successful corporate culture the entire BSR team has built.”
BSR owns and a manages a growing portfolio of multi-family properties consisting of over 9,200 apartment homes, across Arkansas, Oklahoma, Louisiana, Texas, and Mississippi. This year is first time the Little Rock based BSR has made the Best Places to Work in Arkansas list. That is in part fueled by the company’s recent growth, with acquisitions such as the Mountain Ranch community in Fayetteville, AR and West End Lodge in Beaumont, TX.
BSR is a leading owner and operator of garden-style, multifamily communities in the US. The primary mission of BSR is to provide an exceptional living experience for residents at a community they are proud to call home while creating value for our shareholders through strength, profitability and growth.
