McKim & Creed has been named a “2019 Best Firm to Work For” by the Zweig Group, a national firm that provides marketing and strategic planning services to the architectural, engineering and construction (AEC) industry.
The Best Firm to Work For (BFTWF) award recognizes design firms in the U.S. and Canada for excellence in workplace practices, employee benefits, employee retention rates and employee responses to a confidential survey. McKim & Creed first won a BFTWF award in 2016.
“McKim & Creed is an employee-owned company that works hard to attract and retain the top talent in our industry. It is gratifying that our employees appreciate the benefits and opportunities we offer, and I appreciate their honesty and forthrightness in completing their surveys. This is indeed an honor,” said John T. Lucey, Jr., PE, president and CEO of McKim & Creed.
BFTWF presents awards in 13 different categories based on company size and discipline.
“More than half of our employees participated in the confidential survey and provided excellent insight into what we’re doing right and where we can improve. We take these suggestions seriously and have implemented numerous initiatives based on feedback and suggestions we receive,” said Phyllis Elikai, the company’s chief people officer.
McKim & Creed employs nearly 550 people in 22 offices throughout the U.S.
