We are excited to announce that JQ was recently recognized as a 2017 Zweig Group Best Firm to Work For in the Structural Engineering category.

Zweig’s annual list recognizes the top architecture, structural engineering, civil engineering, environmental, geotechnical engineering, landscape architecture/planning, and multidiscipline firms in the United States and Canada. As part of the qualifying process, company employees complete surveys, and the firm’s management answers a questionnaire about values, culture and benefits.

“We are very proud to be among the best firms to work for again this year. This recognition reflects feedback from our employees about our work environment and the opportunities we provide for their professional growth while serving our clients. This award is indicative of the fantastic culture created by JQ staff in all our offices,” said JQ’s CEO Stephen H. Lucy, P.E.

By using the management questionnaire and the anonymous employee surveys regarding workplace practices, companies are graded against other industry participants, then ranked by category. JQ noted the highlights from its employee surveys including:

  • Over 89% of respondents would recommend JQ to a friend looking for a job
  • Over 91% of respondents believed their manager was supportive of their professional development/continuing education
  • Over 92% of respondents believed that new employees are made to feel welcomed and valued

Top attributes of the firm, also noted by JQ employees, that make it a great place to work include the firm’s quality work, integrity and honesty, great culture and work-life balance.
