    July 25, 2017

    Balfour Beatty was recently named as one of the 2017 Best Places to Work in Orange County. The awards program was created in 2009 and is a project of the Orange County Business Journal and Best Companies Group.
    This county-wide survey and awards program was designed to identify, recognize and honor the best places of employment in Orange County, California, benefiting the county's economy, its workforce and businesses.  Balfour Beatty ranked number seven in the Large Company category, moving up 11 spots from last year’s ranking.
    To participate in the competition, organizations from throughout Orange County completed a two-part process to determine the winners. The first part consisted of evaluating each employer's workplace policies, practices, and demographics and was worth approximately 25% of the total evaluation. The second part consisted of an employee survey to measure the employee experience and was worth approximately 75% of the total evaluation. The combined scores determined the top organizations and the final ranking.
    This is the second year employees who work or live in Orange County have participated in the program. “We have a fantastic group of individuals who love to come to work every day,” said John Bernardy, senior vice president and business unit leader in Orange County. “From our beautiful new office space in Newport Beach, to the collaborative and giving spirit our employees embody, we are proud and honored to be recognized as one the best places to work in Orange County.”
