C1S Named to 2017 Outside Magazine “Best Places to Work” List

DALLAS, Texas—November 7, 2017—C1S Group, one of the leading engineering and construction firms in the Southwest, has been named to Outside Magazine’s prestigious “Best Places to Work” list for the fourth time. On the 2017 list, C1S was one of two Texas-based companies, and one of just two engineering and construction firms honored.

Outside Magazine’s “Best Places to Work” list is a compilation of exceptional companies who promote a healthy work-life balance for their employees; value productivity in the workplace; and embody sustainable business practices to preserve and protect the great outdoors.

C1S works hard to maintain the culture and values that make the company so unique. In addition to regularly scheduled social events and breakfast tacos every Friday, the entire company meets every three months for an all-hands update.  These meetings are a time to review the open-book financials, celebrate project success stories, and present Core Values awards. The company has also organized a fitness team called the “Sustainers” which frequently competes in fun runs, and recently participated in the Fit Company Challenge, finishing in first place in their division.

“At C1S, one of our core values is “Work Hard, Play Hard,” said Julie Strong, CEO of C1S. “Whether it’s annual events like our Crawfish Boil or our Halloween Chili Cookoff, or more frequent events like birthday celebrations and happy hour, we strive each day to build an environment where our employees love to come to work.”

In an effort to protect the environment, C1S is a leader in North Texas when it comes to green engineering and sustainability. C1S has a strong history of completing renovations and rebuilds of existing and historic properties, assuring they will stand for generations to come.

“Companies from across the country entered a rigorous two-part survey process to make the winning list,” said Jonah Ogles, Articles Editor at OUTSIDE Magazine.  “The Best Companies Group evaluates each nominated company’s workplace policies, practices, philosophy, systems and demographics. There’s also an employee survey to measure personal experience.”

C1S placed 96th on the 2017 list. The company was 76th on the 2013 list, 32nd on the list in 2014, and 59th on the list in 2015.
