February 3, 2023 – Sargent & Lundy has been awarded a Top Workplaces USA honor for the third year in a row; the inaugural Top Workplaces USA list was published in 2021. The firm has also been recognized regionally by the Chicago Tribune as a "Top Workplace" in Chicago since 2015 and by The Delaware News Journal as a "Top Workplace" in Wilmington since 2019.
The awards are based solely on quantitative employee feedback collected in an anonymous employee engagement survey facilitated by Energage, LLC, a leading provider of technology-based employee engagement tools.
“This is a reflection of Sargent & Lundy’s commitment to providing a work community where people thrive. By empowering our people to provide feedback and incorporating their feedback in our decision-making, we’re able to identify areas of improvement, enhance employee satisfaction and motivation, and ultimately improve business performance,” said Sargent & Lundy Chairman, President, and CEO Vic Suchodolski. “We cannot express our gratitude enough to our incredible employees who bring their passion and commitment to work every day. Your engagement is the cornerstone of our success, and we are so thankful for all you do.”
In addition to measuring employee engagement, the Top Workplaces survey gauges employee’s sentiments toward culture drivers, leadership, and other key workplace elements like compensation packages, benefits, employee well-being, professional development, and performance expectations. Survey results are evaluated against industry-leading benchmarks established from 16 years of research and data compiled from 27 million employees across more than 70,000 organizations.
“We’re thrilled to reveal the winners of the 2023 Top Workplaces USA national award,” said Dan Kessler, president of Energage. “These companies represent the country’s best employers with high-performing, people-first cultures. They’re successful because they put their employees front and center in everything they do. By prioritizing the employee experience above all else, they’re more innovative, productive, and successful than their competitors and the rest of the market.”
While employees are asked to complete only one survey each year, the results are considered for all Top Workplaces programs within 12 months including National, Regional, Industry, and Culture Excellence awards. In 2022, Sargent & Lundy received the following Top Workplaces recognitions:
- Top Workplaces National Culture Excellence Award for compensation and benefits.
- Top Workplaces USA.
- 15 Top Workplace in the large employers category by the Chicago Tribune.
- 6 Top Workplace in the midsize employers category by The Delaware News Journal.
