KSA Has Been Recognized as a Best Firm to Work For
KSA has been recognized as a Best Firm to Work For by Zweig Group, the largest employee experience survey in the architecture, engineering, environmental, planning, and construction (AEC) industry. For 2021, KSA made a jump to the top 10 placing 8 out of 35 in the size category of 100-199 Employees. In the Multidiscipline category, KSA ranked 21 out of 61.
KSA President and CEO Mitch Fortner exclaimed, “We are thrilled to have advanced so rapidly in the Best Firm rankings, especially to have cracked the top 10 in our size category this year. Our employees have been hard at work “building people who build the future” and creating a workplace culture that values collaborative teamwork, commitment to excellence, mutual respect, consistent integrity, and a focus on the future. We have seen the benefit of that work through the last year as our employees valiantly served KSA’s clients through the pandemic. KSA is indeed a great place to work and I could not be more proud of our great team.”
"We are thrilled to have advanced so rapidly in the Best Firm rankings."
The Best Firm to Work For award recognizes AEC firms in the US and Canada based on their workplace practices, employee benefits, employee retention rates, and much more. So what makes KSA such an amazing firm to work for? For starters, KSA has adopted an Open Book Management style of leadership. Each month, everyone in the company is invited to sit in on a presentation given by department heads and the president of KSA. At these meetings, detailed and comprehensive information is shared about KSA’s operations and activities for the previous month/quarter/year.
Everything else that makes KSA great is centered on the people that are a part of our team. Everyone at KSA brings their own qualities and attributes to the table and every skillset, every asset, and honestly every quirky quality has a place in KSA’s culture!
“This is more than a contest, it is a powerful look at what the employee experience looks like in today’s AEC firm.” said Zweig Group CEO Chad Clinehens. “Firms can use this ranking and the data it yields as a powerful tool in the recruitment and retention of staff, which is the number one challenge for many AEC firms. The 2021 winners have a lot to be proud of, and tell the world that they are a best firm to work for.”
KSA is appreciative to every employee who helped made this achievement possible. Thank you to Zweig Group and KSA employees.
