McCownGordon named 2023 Best Workplace in Construction

Kansas City, MO (September 15, 2023) – Great Place to Work and Fortune have selected McCownGordon Construction for the 2023 Fortune Best Workplaces in Construction List. The company ranked #13 out of 30 companies.

The Best Workplaces in Construction Award is based on an analysis of survey responses from over 36,000 employees from Great Place to Work Certified companies in the construction industry.

“McCownGordon is proud to be recognized for having one of the best workplaces in the industry,” said Nancy Whitworth, chief people officer. “Creating an environment where team members feel valued, supported and empowered is at the core of what we do and we know that engaged employees perform better and provide high-quality services to our customers”.

The Best Workplaces in Construction list is highly competitive. Great Place to Work, the global authority on workplace culture, determines its lists using its proprietary For All Methodology to evaluate and certify thousands of organizations in America’s largest ongoing annual workforce study, based on over 1.3 million survey responses and data from companies representing more than 7.5 million employees this year alone.

Survey responses reflect a comprehensive picture of the workplace experience. Honorees were selected based on their ability to offer positive outcomes for employees regardless of job role, race, gender, sexual orientation, work status, or other demographic identifiers.

“These companies know that it isn’t the industry—but the company—that determines the employee experience. By putting people first, they are reaping the rewards: higher levels of performance, innovation and customer experience,” said Michael C. Bush, CEO of Great Place to Work. As a 100% employee-owned company, McCownGordon provides opportunities for employees to learn, grow and thrive while sharing in the company’s success.
