Zweig Group expands Best Firms To Work For awards to include special COVID-19 insights for employers.

Apr 27, 2020

Zweig Group, a global leader in products and services to the AEC industry, announced an expanded research effort to help AEC firms gather and analyze valuable employee data. Because the COVID-19 crisis has significantly impacted AEC firms and staff, Zweig Group has a new service to facilitate connection and gather valuable operational insights. “We are very excited to offer this expanded product and service combination to help firms during this extraordinary time,” said Zweig Group managing principal and director of advisory services, Jamie Claire Kiser. “Every firm and every family are responding to this situation uniquely, and our tightly focused, highly-customized research and recommendations will help give firms the best possible ability to learn as much as they can about how their people are responding.” Zweig Group plans to use the massive database of information and their proprietary Custom Employee Feedback Reports to develop actionable plans designed around the firms in real-time. The new Custom Employee Feedback Reports are detailed with firm’s primary data, industry benchmarks, and open responses, plus the expertise of Zweig’s advisory team to help firms make intelligent decisions based on the findings. The Best Firms To Work For program is the largest AEC-focused employee experience contest in North America, yielding over 2.3 million data points annually. The employee engagement survey, the largest component of the assessment, has added new COVID-19 response questions to provide real-time feedback to one of the most confounding times in history. These new questions coupled with Zweig Group's expanded data capability will give strong insight into how an industry firm’s operations, systems, mentoring programs, marketing efforts, and overall strategic vision are interpreted by staff. “Keeping cultures strong requires aggressive employee experience management and this new offering is the solution for AEC firms,” said Will Swearingen, Zweig Group’s Director of Ownership Transition. “It will help firms drive employee engagement during this critical time while so many are working remote.” For more information on this program, contact Will Swearingen at
