Why be a Best Firm To Work For?

The Best Firms to Work For (BFTWF) award recognizes top AEC firms in the US and Canada based on their workplace practices, employee benefits, employee retention rates, and much more. Incredible benchmarking tools. With your registration fee, whether you place on the BFTWF list or not, you’ll receive a full report containing your firm’s responses to the survey tool used to rank all firms (numerical ranking questions only). You’ll also receive a full report from that includes data from all participating firms useful to benchmark your programs and practices. Additionally, you can choose what reports are most useful to your individual firm. We can create reports to benchmark your firm by discipline, size, or even geographic region. Customized insight. For just $250, you can receive your employees’ responses on the “open response” style questions. And, if you’d like to use the BFTWF format to customize your employee survey, you can add your own questions to solicit additional feedback. The employee survey results are a valuable tool for firm leaders to evaluate existing success and where you need to improve. Recruitment & retention. Simply put, taking time to ask your employees for feedback (i.e., their opinions) is an excellent way to boost morale. The recognition derived from being on the BFTWT Winners List also gives you bragging rights for recruiting top talent. Public awareness, promotion & marketing. Zweig Group gives extensive recognition to award-winning firms through off of our media channels including civil + structural ENGINEER magazine, The Zweig Letter, social media, and other national media outlets. Employee testimonials gathered during this process can also be used by your internal teams for recruiting and marketing. As a BFTWF winner, you’ll receive media attention, increased SEO, and, again… bragging rights! All Best Firms To Work For will be honored at the 2019 ELEVATE AEC Conference.
