DOWNERS GROVE, Ill. (Friday, September 22, 2023)—Sevan Multi-Site Solutions, Inc. (Sevan) was selected by Great Place To Work® and Fortune for the 2023 Fortune Best Workplaces in Construction™ List.

This is Sevan’s first time being named to this prestigious list, coming in at No. 29. Earning a spot means that Sevan is one of the best construction companies to work for in this country.

The Best Workplaces in Construction award is based on an analysis of survey responses from over 36,000 employees from Great Place To Work Certified™ companies in the construction industry.

“We are honored to be recognized on the Best Workplaces in Construction list,” said Jim Evans, CEO & Founder of Sevan. “This achievement reflects our entire team’s commitment to cultivating a culture of teamwork, excellence and innovation. We are excited to add this award to our list of accolades and warmly congratulate all those who made the list this year.”

The Best Workplaces in Construction list is highly competitive. Great Place To Work, the global authority on workplace culture, determines its lists using its proprietary For All™ Methodology to evaluate and certify thousands of organizations in America’s largest ongoing annual workforce study, based on over 1.3 million survey responses and data from companies representing more than 7.5 million employees this year alone.

Survey responses reflect a comprehensive picture of the workplace experience. Honorees were selected based on their ability to offer positive outcomes for employees regardless of job role, race, gender, sexual orientation, work status or other demographic identifiers.

“Congratulations to the Best Workplaces in Construction,” says Michael C. Bush, CEO of Great Place To Work. “These companies know that it isn’t the industry—but the company—that determines the employee experience. By putting people first, they are reaping the rewards: higher levels of performance, innovation and customer experience.”
