MAY 25, 2023 | Excerpt from

Zweig Group is proud to announce the winners of the 2023 Best Firms To Work For Awards, which honor outstanding workplaces at architecture, engineering, environmental, planning, construction, and related professional services (AEC) firms. These companies are recognized for their investment in the employee experience. They’ve created an environment where their people feel valued, can make a difference, and can clearly see where their contribution fits into the overall mission and success of the firm. Firms were evaluated comprehensively on firm culture, workplace practices, employee benefits, employee retention rates, professional development, and more – from both management and staff perspective. Awards were given in multiple categories based on firm size and discipline. “The Best Firms To Work For program is more than an awards program. It is a powerful and industry-specific benchmarking platform that provides a view of what the employee experience looks like in today’s top performing AEC firms,” said Zweig Group CEO Chad Clinehens. “Firms can use this ranking and the data it yields to develop strategies and initiatives to drive greater returns on the investment in their people. With the current unprecedented challenge in the labor market in the AEC industry, winners of the 2023 Best Firms To Work For have much to celebrate this year.” Winners will be honored at a black tie gala during the 2023 Elevate AEC Conference which will be taking place in the new Omni PGA Frisco Resort outside of Dallas, Texas September 13-15. Winners will be featured in Zweig Group’s weekly management newsletter, The Zweig Letter, and Zweig Group’s other marketing channels.
