If you’ve ever found yourself jumping from one job to another, you know a job is more than just the paycheck. Great Place to Work and Fortune know this too, and they’ve ranked the best workplaces into two categories: small and midsize, and large companies.

To make it into the ranking employers would have to run employee surveys to hear their feedback and answer questions about the company’s work culture focused on employees’ wellbeing.

Take a look at these five small and midsize Collin County businesses that made it to Texas’ top 40.
