Best Civil Engineering Firms To Work For Announced | Facility Executive - Creating Intelligent Buildings

Fifty civil engineering firms are celebrating a major accomplishment, but it’s not the type of honor they typically enjoy for executing a great project. No, this honor is much more personal and, consequently, much more meaningful to the firms’ leaders and staff.

On September 28, the top 50 and honorable mention 2006 Best Civil Engineering Firms To Work For were announced at an awards presentation during the Best Firm To Work For Summit. Firms on the list are honored for achieving high levels of employee satisfaction and a great workplace.

Shanon Fauerbach, P.E., editorial director for CE News, which hosts the ranking program, said, “This year, 157 firms competed in the thorough evaluation and comparison of their culture, benefits, performance/recognition practices, compensation, professional development programs, recruiting and retention efforts, and more. All of these firms are committed to creating a positive work environment for their staff. The top 50 firms are reaching the goal.”

And besides the pride in knowing that employees have a great place to go to work each day, firms will reap tangible benefits form this honor. Fauerbach said, “The number one challenge firms face today is hiring and keeping employees who have the technical skills and the attitudes that fit within their organizations. Receiving recognition for achieving an excellent workplace will put these firms ahead of others when competing for the best candidates in the market.”
