HIGHLANDS RANCH, Colo., April 16, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- ARCADIS (EURONEXT: ARCAD), the international design, consulting, engineering and management services company, today announced it has been named as a top 20 company in The Denver Post survey of top places to work in the Denver metro area.
ARCADIS was ranked 15 among 30 midsize companies in the 2012 "top workplace" survey, which measured employee satisfaction in the areas of company leadership, career opportunities, workplace flexibility, compensation and benefits. All 100 companies to make the final list of outstanding Colorado businesses were recognized at an awards ceremony at the new History Colorado Center, and in a special section of The Denver Post.
"I have known for a long time that our employees enjoy working at ARCADIS, but it's very gratifying to have confirmation by a vote of our employees and by The Denver Post," said Steve Blake, chief executive officer of ARCADIS U.S. "We strongly believe in creating a work environment where all employees are treated with respect and appreciated for the contributions they bring to the organization. We're honored by this award and will continue to work hard to create an inclusive workplace that operates with the highest integrity toward employees and our clients."
On behalf of The Denver Post, WorkplaceDynamics LLC, a workplace survey specialist, conducted an employee satisfaction and engagement survey of Denver-area employers. Evaluations for the Top Workplaces program were solely based on the feedback received from these employee surveys.
"ARCADIS offers robust benefits including health, financial, and professional development in a business-casual work setting where we foster an environment of respect, inclusiveness and openness," said Jim Barrett, senior vice president of human resources for ARCADIS U.S. "In addition to our strong ties to the Denver metro area and across the nation, ARCADIS' large global presence provides opportunities for staff to give back to the global community through our involvement with the UN-SHELTER program."
