NATICK, Mass.—Every architecture and engineering (A/E) firm leader knows that talented, motivated, and dedicated personnel are the key to a firm’s success. The challenge, however, is not only attracting the best personnel, but also retaining them. And in the current competitive marketplace, retaining the best and the brightest architects and engineers requires firm leaders to create a great workplace—from compensation and benefits to recognition programs, social atmosphere, and opportunities.

The 2007 Best Firm to Work For Summit is being expanded this year with the addition of an A/E Job Fair to help A/E firms connect with prospective employees. With the vast array of top-notch engineering and design programs and schools in the New England area, this event will be an ideal opportunity to connect the next generation of engineers and architects with A/E firms that are committed to being a "Best Firm to Work For."

The 2007 Best Firm to Work For Summit is a two-day event, which will take place on Oct. 4-5, 2007, at the Hyatt Harborside Hotel in Boston. It will focus on best practices in AEC firm management, hiring and retention strategies, the physical and the cultural environment of the workplace, employee compensation and benefits, as well as the organizational structure of the firm.
