This summer has been one fun celebration after another! In June, we marked the 10th anniversary of Cleary Zimmermann’s formation, and were awarded Engineering News-Record Texas & Louisiana’s “Top Design Firms 2016.” Now in July, we celebrate winning San Antonio Business Journal’s valued “Best Places to Work” award in the Small Business category—the third time our firm has received this exciting honor!
All of this has allowed us to take a fun trip down memory lane and reflect on where we’ve been and where we are headed as a firm. During our firm celebration, we thoroughly enjoyed the throwback “vintage” photos Wade and Danny shared with the team over Marble Slab ice cream and 100 (yes, we counted!) CZ gold and blue balloons:
When we gather like this with the whole team around, Wade and Danny frequently discuss how important people are to our CZ equation. So when we got the results of our Best Places to Work survey, it especially hit home to see the staff feedback reflect these sentiments as true-life experiences. All information on the surveys is provided anonymously by our staff, which makes us feel confident that what they share is real. Some excerpts from their comments are below:
“CZ is definitely the best place I have ever worked at. I am proud to say I work at CZ, and the opportunities that CZ has given me in and out of the workplace have improved my quality of life. I know that CZ is investing in me, helping me develop into a valuable member of the team.”
“I've been very impressed with the attitude here: the desire to provide the best service we can to our clients. It comes from the leadership and works its way down. Even though we are not perfect, I see a constant effort to strive to be.”
“The owners here know that it is their employees who truly give this work place the quality that it brings to the products we deliver, and they make sure to take good care of us in return.”
“I have had many opportunities to grow and try new things at Cleary Zimmermann. My managers put faith and trust in me to execute my work on my own, as well as make time to collaborate with me when needed.”
Top word at Cleary Zimmermann Engineers: “Friendly”
It’s great to know that as hard as we work week-in and week-out, our team members feel valued for the jobs that they do and feel good about coming in to Cleary Zimmermann each day…maybe with the totally normal exception of a Monday morning or two!
Thanks CZ for everything you do to make our home at 1344 S. Flores a “Best Place to Work!”
