Application documents are available online for the 2007 Best Civil Engineering Firms To Work For and the Best Structural Engineering Firms To Work For. The deadline is April 20, 2007. Go to http://www.cenews.com/bestfirm to download the application documents.
CE News and Structural Engineer sponsor the annual rankings to provide meaningful recognition of top-notch firms. The honor of being named on the list is intended to aid firms in staff recruitment and retainment initiatives.
Two tools are used to collect information about the firms that apply: a Corporate Survey, completed by firm managers; and an Employee Satisfaction Survey, completed by at least 20 percent of staff. A scoring system is used to identify those firms that are providing a well-balanced, high-quality work environment that enables individuals to succeed and to contribute to their firm’s success. No single factor is most important.
The final rankings will be announced and honored at the 4th Annual Best Firms To Work For Summit and Awards Ceremony, which will be held Oct. 4-5, 2007, at the Hyatt Harborside in Boston. In addition, the results will be published in the October issues of CE News and Structural Engineer for the respective lists, and on their websites.
