BOSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Suffolk, one of the largest and most innovative real estate and construction enterprises in the country, is proud to announce that it has been named to the selective FORTUNE 2023 Best Workplaces in Construction list. This list celebrates companies leading the construction industry in implementing innovative policies and creating inclusive work environments. As the list is informed entirely by employee feedback rather than outside sources, this is a significant accomplishment for Suffolk and its employees, who have ranked the company’s work environment among the best in the industry.
The Best Workplaces in Construction list is based on survey responses from over 36,000 employees from Great Place to Work-Certified™ companies in the construction industry. In that survey, 91% of Suffolk employees said Suffolk is a great place to work. Survey respondents cited Suffolk’s people-first culture, innovative collective mindset, myriad learning and development opportunities, and comprehensive benefits as among the most rewarding aspects of working at Suffolk.
“Suffolk is honored to be selected as a FORTUNE 2023 Best Workplace in Construction, reinforcing what I often say that at Suffolk, we do not build buildings, we build people,” said John Fish, Chairman and CEO of Suffolk. “This ranking is testament to how Suffolk champions our people as our greatest asset. By upholding our core values of passion, integrity, hard work, professionalism and caring at every turn, Suffolk has created a culture where every employee can thrive. We are thrilled with this recognition and look forward to continuing to offer an unparalleled employee experience.”
Suffolk creates a culture of constant learning and development through a multitude of programs such as Career Start, a two-year rotational program for recent college graduates who are passionate about the opportunity to grow their career in construction management; We Are Suffolk, an immersive learning and acculturation experience for all new employees; and Management Excellence Academy, a program designed to equip managers with fundamental leadership skills. Employees at Suffolk connect with one another through volunteer activations, employee-led Business Resource Groups, and community events.
At Suffolk, employees learn the importance of creating an inclusive, collaborative, innovative and vibrant culture. This forward-thinking mindset and supportive network is the foundation for Suffolk’s success, allowing the company to complete some of the most complex and sophisticated projects across the country, including the South Station Redevelopment Tower in Boston, the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood, Florida, the Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport Terminal C Renovation project, and the renovation of the iconic Waldorf-Astoria Hotel in New York City.
