ATLANTA, Ga. — Geosyntec Consultants recently received the Pinnacle Award as a result of achieving both The Zweig Letter Hot Firm 2006 List and the CE News Best Civil Engineering Firms to Work For, one of only two large firms to do so throughout the United States.
The Pinnacle Award reflects both Geosyntec's exceptional business performance and leadership in creating a quality workplace. Geosyntec ranked 33 amongst all participating firms in the CE News Best Civil Engineering Firms to Work For Contest. Geosyntec ranked even higher, ninth, among large firms (more than 500 employees). Among the heavily weighted judging criteria was the employee satisfaction survey in which over 70 percent of employees participated.
"We are honored to be ranked as one of the Best Engineering Firms to Work For," said Mary Masty, Geosyntec human resources director. "For me, personally, the most significant element of this recognition is that it comes from the employees, who form the Geosyntec family. On a daily basis, I have the privilege of working side by side with committed and creative individuals who dedicate themselves to providing our clients with exceptional service while finding the time to help a fellow employee either professionally or personally. As a company, I like to think that we provide that same level of service to each and every individual in the firm."
In addition, Geosyntec ranked 65 on The Zweig Letter Hot Firm 2006 List based on its continuous, organic revenue growth during the past three years as compared to over 400 firms who were evaluated for a spot in the top 100.
"What I find remarkable in being ranked in The Zweig Letter Hot Firm List is that we are not a company that focuses on growth," said Jon Dickinson, Geosyntec CFO. "For us, growth is a by product of clients recognizing the quality of our employees, of our ability to recruit top practitioners, and of the hard work and dedication of everyone across the company."
These awards resonate one clear message — Geosyntec is comprised of top quality, committed professionals, who work for a firm that cares about its employees. "My hat's off to the employees who are Geosyntec and who make Geosyntec one of the Best Engineering Firms to Work For," said Masty.
