Inc. magazine has named C1S Group, a full-service professional engineering and construction firm, one of the “50 Best Places to Work” in the United States. Inc.’s roster of the 50 best workplaces is the first such measurement of American companies with up to 500 employees and is intended to both guide and inspire businesses to build workplace cultures that allow their staff to grow along with the bottom line. Chosen from among 500 entrants, C1S is the only North Texas company on the list.
“At C1S, our company values inspire us to be innovative and provide exceptional service for our customers while at the same time encourage us to enjoy what we do and to have fun,” said Matt Strong, PE, LEED AP and president of C1S Group. “We think this is an excellent blueprint to being a successful company that not only delivers for our clients but that also attracts and keeps talented employees for years to come. We are delighted that Inc. agrees with us and believes that C1S is one of the best places to work in the U.S.”
According to Inc., which is written for and about growing small and mid-sized companies, finding and keeping the best people is one of the biggest challenge businesses face. The companies on the “Best Places to Work” list deploy state-of-the-art techniques to keep their staff happy and productive. Inc. noted that C1S Group keeps employees healthy and happy through physical activity, with standing cubicles and workout stations in the office and regular offsite exercise sessions.
Inc. evaluated companies based on three criteria: how well the companies look after their staff's financial security through retirement, insurance, and other financial benefits; special measures the companies use to motivate and recognize employee performance; and employee feedback.
To select the “50 Best Places to Work,” Inc. audited more than 500 companies that completed online applications. To be eligible, applicants had to have been in business at least three years, have between five and 500 employees, be based in the United States, and be independent and privately owned, with 2015 revenue of at least $2 million.
