Garney has claimed a spot on a new “best places” list of mid-sized employers published by Forbes. Among the top 300 U.S. employers, Garney is humbled to be recognized No. 149 on Forbes’ America’s Best Midsize Employers. Forbes’ list ranks companies with 1,000 to 5,000 employees based on a survey that asked employees how likely they were to recommend their workplaces to family or friends.
“Garney is fortunate to be 100% employee owned — it’s the foundation of our culture,” said Mike Heitmann, President and CEO of Garney Construction. “When you’re an owner, you care more about the company. It has defined our culture and our success.”
Forbes partnered with Statista to survey 30,000 employees from firms across the country on their workplace cultures.
“Garney’s employee ownership, coupled with our reputation as a leader in the industry, has created this environment where we continue to grow and invest in the development of our employee-owners.”
“We continue to see historic growth at the company. Even throughout the slowdown of the economic downturn several years ago, we continued to grow. The market we are in now is much stronger, and has put Garney in a position to grow even faster.”
