October 26, 2015 – ENGEO was named by Great Place to Work® as one of the best workplaces in the United States on their annual 2015 Best Small & Medium Workplaces list, published in FORTUNE magazine. Ranked 10th, this is the 6th consecutive year ENGEO has earned a top-10 ranking. The list has recognized companies with exceptional workplace cultures for the past eleven years.
ENGEO participated in a rigorous selection process among many hundreds of nominated companies across the country. The process included an employee survey, an in-depth questionnaire about programs and company practices, and a culture audit. Great Place to Work® evaluates each application using its unique methodology based on five dimensions: credibility, respect, fairness, pride and camaraderie.
With offices throughout California and New Zealand, ENGEO has provided engineering consultation and design services in 39 US states and a number of foreign countries, including New Zealand, Australia, Japan, Mexico and Israel. The firm’s expertise in flood control, geologic hazard mitigation, seismic engineering, ground improvement techniques, hazardous materials remediation, water quality and riparian corridor restoration has won the trust of hundreds of clients in both the public and private sectors. The firm has won multiple awards for workplace culture and technical excellence.
Says one employee, “ENGEO provides such a liberating workplace – we are constantly encouraged to grow professionally and personally, and we have few, if any, limits to pursue our intellectual passions. My colleagues and our leadership create a culture where we all have an active role in growing the company and expanding how we can provide value to clients.”
ENGEO’s president, Uri Eliahu, adds, “We’ve always made it a priority to create a climate where talented people are empowered to achieve to their full potential, where our people have the opportunity to grow every day, and where we continuously expand the horizons of ENGEO. This philosophy ultimately leads us to personal and collective success.”
“The work of these companies is quite impressive,” said Michael Bush, CEO of Great Place to Work®. “They provide an example that others can look to, to see what kind of outstanding workplace is possible—regardless of size, industry, or other circumstances. For example, the growth that many of these companies are experiencing is tremendous, and they are paying close attention to culture every step of the way. This focus on a strong cultural foundation will help pave the way for continued success as they serve their employees and their customers.”
Organizations named on the list see many benefits that include better financial performance, less employee turnover, higher levels of customer satisfaction and loyalty, more innovative and creative thinking, higher productivity and enhanced public perception.
