The Collaborative has been awarded #1 in the nation, by Zweig Group, for Best Firm to Work For in the Architectural category. The award is based on employee feedback; evaluating culture, workplace practices, employee benefits, professional development, and retention rates.

Zweig Group organizes this awards program honoring outstanding workplaces at architecture, engineering, and environmental consulting firms. The list is based on surveys from both corporate officials and employees.

To celebrate, the Principals took the whole office to Veritas, a nearby wine bar, for the announcement. The Collaborative will formally accept the award this September at the 2015 Hot Firm and A/E Industry Awards Conference in Boston.

“As The Collaborative pursues a growth strategy, by opening new offices and recruiting talent, this award will bolster our national reach. In addition to recruitment of talent, the award acts as a reminder to our current employees of the incredible culture and firm they are helping to build,” Jones says.
