The Atlanta Journal-Constitution names Arcadis a 2019 Top Workplace

Arcadis has been named a Top Workplace by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.  Only 150 companies across Atlanta made the list, which is based solely on employee feedback gathered through an anonymous third-party survey measuring several aspects of workplace culture, including alignment, execution and connection.

“We are all so excited to receive this award,” said Wassim Selman, Arcadis president of infrastructure and top executive in the Atlanta office. “It is our obligation to create an environment in which people come first and are able to grow, perform and succeed. Having a workforce that feels valued, empowered and inspired helps us deliver the best experience to our customers and show our passion for improving quality of life in the communities we serve.”

The Arcadis Atlanta office is home to more than 300 employees comprising a diverse group of engineers, scientists and business advisory professionals. It is also home to the Arcadis digital studio — a central place for employees and clients to create new solutions using locally available tools and technology.

“Top Workplaces is more than just recognition,” said Doug Claffey, CEO of Energage, the human resources consulting company who administered the survey. “Our research shows organizations that earn the award attract better talent, experience lower turnover, and are better equipped to deliver bottom-line results. Their leaders prioritize and carefully craft a healthy workplace culture that supports employee engagement.”

The winners were honored at the 2019 AJC Top Workplaces event on Feb. 27, at the Georgia Aquarium.

“Becoming a Top Workplace isn’t something organizations can buy,” Claffey said. “It’s an achievement organizations have worked for and a distinction that gives them a competitive advantage. It’s a big deal.”
