LACO Associates Ranks in Nationwide ‘Best Firms to Work For’ 2018 List

Congratulations to a local company and their employees. This is a press release from LACO Associates:

Eureka, CA – July 2, 2018 – LACO Associates was named by Zweig Group as a 2018 Best Firm to Work For. Among companies from all over the US and Canada, LACO ranked #46 in the Multi-Discipline Category.

Among the small number of national A/E industry award programs, the 2018 Best Firm to Work For list distinguishes the top architecture, structural engineering, civil engineering, environmental, geotechnical engineering, landscape architecture/planning, and multi-discipline firms. The award grades and attributes top firms based on their workplace culture and practices, employee benefits, retention rates, feedback from employee questionnaires, evaluations, and more.

“It was gratifying to find out that my personal experiences at LACO are not unique to me, but shared with my coworkers. Filling out the questionnaire gave me the opportunity to be a little introspective and I was able to articulate how I felt about issues that we don’t normally spend much time thinking about.” said Christine Manhart, PG, GeoEnvironmental Department Manager. “I like the feeling that, even though we’re all coming from different places, we wound up here, together.” LACO Associates received an overall satisfaction rating of 7.3 out of 8 from their employee-survey feedback.

LACO Associates, along with other award winners, will be recognized at the Hot Firm and A/E Industry Award Conference held September 20-21, 2018, in Dallas, TX.
