Irvine, Calif. (June 3, 2019) —Taylor Design, an employee-owned architectural, interior design and design strategy firm, was ranked first among architecture firms on the Best Firms To Work For Awards list, a prestigious competition honoring the creation of outstanding workplaces at architecture, engineering, and environmental consulting firms in the US and Canada.
“As an employee-owned firm, we are humbled by this recognition, but know that it is a reflection of the hard work of everyone at Taylor Design,” said D. Randy Regier, president. “We strive to offer a work environment where our staff have active roles in the success of the firm and a sense of tribe where everyone plays – and everyone learns leadership skills regardless of role or expertise.”
Firms were recognized for their ability to inspire their teams to perform at the highest levels and create an environment where their people feel valued, can make a difference, and can clearly see their contribution to the overall mission and success of the firm.
Firms who applied for this prestigious ranking were evaluated comprehensively on firm culture, workplace practices, employee benefits, employee retention rates, professional development, and more – both from the management and staff’s perspectives. Awards were given in the categories of architecture, civil engineering, environmental, multi-discipline, surveying, and structural engineering.
Throughout its 40-year history Taylor Design has ranked high on the Best Firms to Work For list multiple times, most recently in 2018 where it achieved second place among architecture firms. The firm has been growing at a rapid pace to meet the demand of the education, science and technology, and healthcare markets it serves. With offices in Irvine, San Francisco, Sacramento, and San Diego, and just under 100 employees firm-wide, Taylor Design continues to attract top talent.
“Being named as a national Best Firm To Work For is a powerful statement.” said Chad Clinehens, CEO of Zweig Group, which oversaw the competition. “With recruiting and retention being the number one challenge for AEC firms, this award provides a great platform to promote culture and employee experience, offering these firms a strong competitive advantage.”
