November 5, 2021 - Sargent & Lundy’s Chicago headquarters has been named a “Top Workplace” by the Chicago Tribune for the seventh consecutive year. The firm ranked 14 in the Large Employers category.
The honor is determined by feedback gathered through anonymous employee surveys measuring several aspects of workplace culture. This year, the firm had its highest survey participation rate of all time.
Sargent & Lundy received its highest survey score in response to the statement, "I feel well-informed about important decisions at Sargent & Lundy." Survey results also indicated employees believe senior managers understand what’s really happening at the firm.
“We strive to live our core values every day as we grow our business and lead the industry,” said Sargent & Lundy Chairman, President & CEO Tom White. “Earning this recognition is a testament to our culture of quality, innovation, and continuous improvement in the relationships and work with our teams, our clients, and our communities. It is our people who make Sargent & Lundy an inspiring workplace.”
The third-party survey was administered by research partner Energage, LLC, a leading provider of technology-based employee engagement tools. Its research shows that Top Workplace organizations achieve higher referral rates, lower employee turnover, and double the employee engagement levels.
"During this very challenging time, Top Workplaces has proven to be a beacon of light for organizations, as well as a sign of resiliency and strong business performance," said Eric Rubino, Energage CEO. "When you give your employees a voice, you come together to navigate challenges and shape your path forward. Top Workplaces draw on real-time insights into what works best for their organization, so they can make informed decisions that have a positive impact on their people and their business."
