CH2M HILL voted one of ‘100 Best Companies to Work For’

Posted on February 2, 2009

CH2M HILL, a global full-service engineering, procurement, construction and operations firm, has been ranked 86 on Fortune magazine’s 12th annual “100 Best Companies to Work For” list.

 

This is the fourth time the company has earned a spot on this prestigious list. The full list and related stories appear in the Feb. 2 issue of Fortune. The company has also been recognized as a Most Admired Company by Fortune magazine for the past 6 years.

 

Fortune’s annual ranking is determined through an extensive nomination and application process. Two-thirds of the score is based on how randomly selected employees respond to a 57-question survey created by the Great Place to Work Institute. The other third is based on the company’s responses to the Institute’s Cultural Audit.

 

CH2M HILL was selected, in part, due to its comprehensive and ongoing training and professional development programs (on average, each full-time employee at CH2M HILL participates in 16 hours of training annually), employee-ownership culture (more than 60 percent of employees own stock in the firm), and work-life balance programs (10 percent of employees take advantage of CH2M HILL’s flexible work schedules by working compressed weeks, and five percent of employees telework).
