Transwestern has done it again, coming in as the city’s best place to work for the second year running. The privately held commercial real estate firm is the only company to reach the top spot twice since Crain’s launched its Best Places to Work ranking in 2008.
The repeat performance reflects Transwestern’s commitment to maintaining its “awesomeness,” said Peter Burke, president of Best Companies Group, the independent research firm that manages the Best Places surveys and results for Crain’s. “Transwestern has a collection of benefits, amenities and perks that has created an environment of teamwork and family. This results in a high level of employee engagement.”
To be eligible for the Crain’s ranking, businesses must employ 25 or more workers within the five boroughs. To assemble the data, Best Companies dispatched surveys to more than 23,000 city employees. Each worker answered a confidential 86-question survey, and the scores were combined with results from a separate 78-question survey completed by employers. The questions focused on everything from working conditions to internal communications. Results from the employee survey made up 75% of the total score; the answers from employers constituted 25%.
While tech companies represent about one-third of this year’s Best Places entries, the roster of winners mirrors the city’s diverse economic landscape. Firms hail from a range of industries, including accounting, advertising, construction, engineering, finance, law and real estate. But these companies are tied together by a common value: They spare no effort to create a supportive, collegial and empowering workplace. —Cara S. Trager
