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?

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.

To be eligible for the 2024 award, you must purchase your employee survey no later than June 9, 2024.

The 2023 A/E/C Employer of Choice Award winners, in ranked order, are:

1. Hampton, Lenzini, and Renwick, Inc. (HLR)
