A different kind of recognition that rewards
A/E/C firms committed to employee engagement

In today’s tight labor market, architecture and engineering talent chooses you, not the other way around. So how will your firm stand out? How can it be a dream destination for the brightest, most productive, and most passionate?

Most ‘best company to work for’ awards measure superficial levels of employee satisfaction, so winning is easy – and meaningless. Just overpay your staff, over-promise benefits, throw out some free breakfast cereal, and most importantly, don’t ask too much of them! You might win the award – but at what cost?

Enter to win the ONLY award that proves, to one and all, that your firm is a great place to work  and use it as a talent recruiting magnet for any position.

PSMJ’s A/E/C Employer of Choice® award is different. Our judging process looks beyond simple satisfaction scores to measure and recognize the most significant metric that proves you have truly satisfied employees…their level of engagement.

With survey questions that dig deep into your employees’ fundamental sense of how they contribute and connect with colleagues, leaders, projects, clients, and missions, this data-driven award separates high-performing firms and individuals from the pack … and gets employees to put forth difference-making discretionary effort to meet your firm’s growth objectives, even when no one is looking.


If that’s the kind of passionate, driven, and engaged employee you want to attract, then A/E/C Employer of Choice® entry is for you.

ENTRY DEADLINE: April 24th, 2020 at 11:59 EDT. By this date, you simply need to have paid the entry fee to start the process. Then, within 3-5 business days of your entry, we’ll send you the survey link for you to send out to all of your employees. All surveys will close on May 22nd, 2020. 

Awards will be presented in September 2020 at A/E/C PeopleMAX in Boston. To learn more, click here.
