HONOLULU, HAWAII – JULY 1, 2020 – In an annual listing of Best Firms To Work For, BASE ranked fourth in the Structural Engineering category and ninth in the 1-49 Firm Size category. The national ranking is compiled by Zweig Group and recognizes firms for superior achievements in criteria such as workplace practices, firm culture, employee benefits, and employee retention rates. This year marks BASE’s 15th appearance in the list and the only structural firm to make the list 10 years in a row.
“To be number four out of thousands of structural engineering firms across North America is truly humbling. We’re honored to be recognized as one of the best structural engineering firms to work for,” said Steve Baldridge, BASE president.
“With recruitment and retention continuing to be the greatest challenges for firms, this contest, the only national best places to work for the AEC industry, is more important than ever,” said Zweig Group CEO Chad Clinehens. “Add the current pandemic to the mix and it is even more critical for firms to find measurable ways to reinforce their culture and the good things they are doing and creating. Celebrating an award like Best Firms To Work For does just that and infuses positive energy into the environment.”
