FKP Architects best of the best for A/E/C workplaces in the U.S.

The Zweig Group recently named FKP Architects to their “2015 Best Firms to Work For” list. Placing fourth in the architecture category, FKP ranks among the top architectural firms to work for in the country.

The Zweig Group’s “Best Firms to Work For” program specifically focuses on architecture, engineering and environmental consulting firm achievement. The award recognizes the top firms in the U.S. and Canada based on culture, workplace practices, employee benefits, employee retention rates, professional development and more – both from the management and staff's perspectives. The firms selected were recognized for their ability to inspire their teams to perform at the highest levels while creating an environment where their teams feel valued, can make a difference, and can clearly see their contribution to the overall mission and success of the firm.

“This is such an honor to be included on the Zweig Group’s list of best firms to work for,” said Diane Osan, ‎Chairman & Chief Visionary Officer at FKP Architects. “The happiness and welfare of our employees is central to our culture. Their passion for what they do is the reason we are successful and, in turn, they create innovative, unique design solutions for our clients. This award demonstrates that our FKP family is healthy and positively engaged – to us there is nothing more important.”

Throughout the years, FKP has consistently been named a great place to work, having been named in several other programs, including the Houston Business Journal’s Best Places to Work, Dallas Business Journal’s Best Places to Work and Texas Monthly magazine’s Best Places to Work for in Texas.

“Creating an environment for our employees to thrive is something we strive for every day. We want to recruit and retain the best and to do that we must empower employees at all levels to do what they love to do,” said Denise Starrett, Chief Human Resources Officer at FKP Architects. “And of course, we want this to be a place where we can all have fun too.”

Zweig Group, a management consulting and research firm, established the “Best Firms to Work For” award in 2001. This year, 145 companies competed in five categories. The winners were recognized at the Hot Firm and A/E Industry Awards Conference on Sept. 3-4 in Boston, Mass. For more information about the “Best Firms to Work For,” go to
