Beck Earns Recognition on the Top Best Companies List
- Jul 25, 2018
The Beck Group, the integrated architecture and construction firm, is one of Florida’s Best Companies To Work For, ranking third in the large company category.
This is Beck’s third time on the Best Companies’ top ten list. In 2017, the firm earned the number two spot, and in 2016, it ranked eighth.
“It is an honor to be a Best Company To Work For. Beck is an established firm with a great reputation and culture. We seek out people who share our vision and who help make us a better, more innovative firm,” says Ryan Toth, regional director of Beck’s Tampa office.
Beck, whose projects include the Sykes Building, The University of Tampa’s Daly Innovation and Collaboration Building, the University of South Florida Health Center for Advanced Medical Learning and Simulation (CAMLS) and Ulele Restaurant and Brewery in Tampa Bay, is featured in the August issue of Florida Trend magazine. One-hundred companies are ranked in small, medium and large employer categories.
To participate, companies or government entities had to employ at least 15 workers in Florida and have been in operation at least one year. Companies that chose to participate underwent an evaluation of their workplace policies, practices, philosophy, systems and demographics, which included an employee satisfaction survey. The combined scores determined the top companies and final ranking.
“Employers we speak with talk a lot about how workplaces are changing and how young employees’ expectations are changing. For the Best Companies issue this year, we spoke with new hires and got their perspectives on what attracted them to the companies where they now work and what they now like best about their workplaces,” says Mark Howard, executive editor at Florida Trend.
For Beck, that includes a spotlight from Zuri Mabry. Mabry joined the firm in February after graduating with a bachelor’s degree in business from Florida A&M University.
“Beck wanted to know about me as a person. They looked at potential and work ethic, and that’s me all the way. I didn’t know construction, but I wanted to learn. My impression of the company is still the same, which is a good thing,” says Mabry, a 23-year-old project engineer.
The Best Companies To Work For In Florida program was created by Florida Trend and Best Companies Group and is endorsed by the HR Florida State Council. Best Companies Group managed the registration, survey and analysis and determined the final rankings.
