How does your company rate?

Professional Builder is looking for the top builders to work for - companies that excel in recruitment and retention practices; professional development and training; social, environmental and corporate responsibility; positive workplace culture and environment, and compensation/benefits practices.

We’re looking for companies that create truly positive work environments for their building professionals and support staff. The goal is to reward builders who delight all of their customers – clients as well as employees.

The top builders will be featured in the July 2006 issue ofProfessional Builder. Winners will not be ranked: All will be designated as “Professional Builder’s Top 40 Workplaces.”

What we’re looking for :
  • Innovative recruitment and retention practices
  • Professional development, education and training
  • Social and corporate responsibility
  • Constructive work environment, a corporate culture that encourages team spirit and loyalty among employees
  • Extraordinary compensation and benefits practices

Nominations will be judged by a panel of judges selected by the editors of Professional Builder, whose decision is final.

  • This competition is for new home builders only. Remodelers, architects, and other companies in related industries will not be considered.
