Tighe & Bond one of best places to work

Date: 8/22/2012

WESTFIELD — At its annual Best Firms to Work for Summit in July, ZweigWhite recognized Tighe & Bond as one of the best civil engineering firms to work for in the nation. The New England-based firm was awarded the eighth place spot during the event in Seattle, Wash.

ZweigWhite, the publisher of CE News, sponsored the event that celebrates the winners of its Best Firms To Work For competition and offers engineering and architecture firms a place to share strategies, successes and industry news. The yearly competition is based on business practice data collected from numerous participating firms across the country, including feedback solicited through an employee survey.

The competitive ranking that results is based on comprehensive evaluations of factors such as firm culture and workplace practices, employee benefits, career development and growth opportunities, compensation, performance and recognition, as well as recruiting and retention rates. All firms that apply for this prestigious ranking and recognition are evaluated against each other, not a set standard.

"Tighe & Bond's recognition as one of the best civil engineering firms to work for is a significant honor. It also exemplifies our ongoing commitment to create a working environment where all of our employees feel valued, and where they can see their contribution to the overall mission and success of the firm and our clients," said David E. Pinsky, who is president of the firm that has received this distinction three times.

"Our ability to recruit, develop, and retain the most talented staff is crucial to providing the high quality, responsive services that our clients have come to expect and deserve," he added.
