We are thrilled to announce that Swinerton has been ranked by Forbes as one of the Best Workplaces for Diversity!
Coming in at #64 on the list, we are proud to be the only construction company on the list, and standing among a group of the world's most impactful companies.
This marks our first time ever being recognized on this list, and we are extremely proud to be a part of what this list recognizes: we are committed to making strides to create a diverse and inclusive organization where everyone can thrive, regardless of age, gender, race, or sexual identity.
“This company is very unique in the way that it welcomes so much diversity. It is a breath of fresh air to see that so many women can be in such high positions and very well respected. Swinerton practices what it preaches.”
To determine the Best Workplaces for Diversity, Fortune partnered with the people analytics firm, Great Place to Work®, to analyze anonymous survey feedback representing more than 4.4 million US employees.
The Best Workplaces for Diversity list focuses on the experiences of women, people of color, LGBTQ people, employees who are Boomers or older, and people who have disabilities. The ranking is based on what these employees themselves report in a 60-question Trust Index© survey about the trust, pride and camaraderie they experience in their workplace, and how those experiences compare to their colleagues’ reports of the same workplaces. Great Place to Work also consider employees’ daily experiences of innovation, the company’s values, and the effectiveness of their leaders, to ensure they’re consistently experienced, as well.
The remaining 15 percent of the rank is based on the diversity of the company’s overall workforce and its management representation, taking into account industry trends. To be considered, companies need to employ at least 50 people.
This now marks our eighth time being recognized by Forbes as a great place to work:
