SIDNEY – Choice One Engineering, a consulting civil engineering and surveying firm with locations in Ohio and Indiana, has been named the Best Civil Engineering Firm to Work For, nationwide, for the third year in a row.
“We are honored and excited to be named the top civil firm to work for in the US for the third year in a row,” stated Choice One President Matt Hoying. “It sounds silly, but it honestly comes as a surprise. To continue to top a list of hundreds of great, worthy firms nationwide is a big deal.”
The Zweig Group, the award’s originator and publisher of leading engineering and architecture publications in the U.S., recently announced Choice One as the first place firm in the Civil Engineering category. According to the Zweig Group, “[This award is] a prestigious ranking honoring the creation of outstanding workplaces at… civil, structural, and multidiscipline engineering firms. These firms have been recognized for their ability create outstanding workplaces through workplace design, teamwork, excellent benefits and amenities, and work culture.”
Hoying gave credit for the company’s fantastic culture to the 40 employees across Choice One’s three offices. “This award is not based on our revenue or ability to gain business— it’s based on the responses of our employees and the enthusiasm, dedication, and commitment they have for our company, our clients, and our communities.”
Per the Zweig Group, firms were graded on a combination score of comprehensive employee surveys and corporate evaluations, then ranked by category. Over 11,000 employees from participating firms responded to the employee survey. “11,000 engineers, architects, and other design professionals weighed in on what makes their companies great places to work, and our 40 employees ranked us at the very top. This is truly a testament to the gifted, hard-working people at Choice One who care about their work and the relationship opportunities it offers,” stated Hoying.
“This award is bigger than Choice One,” said Hoying. “This award showcases the culture and people of the greater Miami Valley region, from our offices in Sidney and Loveland, Ohio, all the way over to our office in Portland, Indiana. I think most who live in this region know what a great place to live and work the greater Dayton/Cincinnati region is. This honor is one example of our area’s merit and significance to the rest of the nation. If a civil firm like Choice One can achieve this first-place designation for three straight years — beating out firms in traditionally ‘popular’ locales such as New York and California (not to mention Hawaii!), then clearly we have something special in this region. We hope awards and other positive stories like this encourage more great people to live, study, work, raise their families, and enjoy the remarkable benefits of our great region.”
