SWBR was recognized nationally on the Zweig Group’s 2018 Hot Firm, 2018’s Best Firms to Work For and 2018 Marketing Excellence lists, earning the Trifecta Award, given to firms recognized in all three categories in the same year.
This is SWBR’s second year in a row on the Hot Firms list, which recognizes the 100 fastest-growing architecture/engineering firms in the U.S. Not only has SWBR’s revenue increased significantly over the past three years, but the staff size has grown by 30 percent since 2015, and the firm is in the process of a major interior renovation to accommodate its growth.
Best Firms to Work For is a list honoring firms with outstanding workplaces that inspire their teams to perform at the highest levels and create an environment where their people feel valued, can make a difference, and clearly see their contribution to the overall mission and success of the firm.
“This year was the most competitive year we have had for Best Firms to Work For! With both first-timers and legacy firms in the mix, participation in this award increased for the third year in a row. This is such an important designation right now because the hiring market is so competitive and these firms really stand out from the rest of the industry,” said Kyle Ahern, awards manager, Zweig Group.
Winning a Marketing Excellence award in the Proposal Presentation category is rewarding for SWBR, having gone through a complete brand refresh in 2017. The new logo, branding and new marketing materials were designed completely in-house. The awards are given annually for outstanding and effective marketing in the A/E industry.
The award winners will celebrate in September at the Zweig Group’s Hot Firm and A/E Industry Awards in Dallas.
