TOLEDO, Ohio, June 26, 2017 – SSOE Group (www.ssoe.com), a global project delivery firm for architecture, engineering, and construction management, has been ranked as a “Hot Firm” by management consulting and research firm Zweig Group. This ranking signifies that SSOE is one of the fastest-growing architecture, engineering, planning, and environmental consulting firms in the United States.
Zweig Group’s Hot Firm List is determined by evaluating a firm’s percentage growth rate and dollar revenue growth rate, over the previous 3-year period. This ranking, established over 20 years ago, is the only list celebrating and honoring growth in the industry.
“SSOE attributes our success over the last 3 years to our focus on company culture”, said SSOE’s CEO, Bob Howell. “Aligning our culture with our strategic plan places the priority on clients, culture, collaboration, and employees. We see these items as the ‘leading indicators’ to our financial performance, which is a ‘lagging indicator’. To support our culture initiative, SSOE has held interactive ’All Hands on Deck’ sessions to focus on areas of our culture we’ve identified as the key to these priorities. While this ‘Hot Firm’ award recognizes the financial outcomes we’ve enjoyed, we know these financial results are driven by increased safety awareness, improved client satisfaction ratings and referrals, healthier collaboration between employees and clients, greater quality audit scores, better efficiencies, significant internal increases in innovation, and a dramatic increase in employee retention, to name a few”.
“Getting on the Hot Firm List is like winning an Oscar. It says you are the best at what you do—running an A/E/P or environmental consulting firm—in an industry made up of 100,000 companies,” said Mark Zweig, chairman and founder of Zweig Group.
The winners will be celebrated at the Hot Firm and A/E Industry Awards Conference, held at the Fairmont Olympic Hotel in Seattle, Washington on September 21 – 22, 2017. Awards will be presented at a black-tie ceremony on the evening of September 22.
