Lincoln, Nebraska (April 19, 2018) – Olsson Associates was honored Thursday as one of Lincoln’s Best Places to Work, a program that recognizes the area’s top businesses that have created positive work environments for their employees.
Olsson, an engineering and design firm with nearly 30 offices in eight states, was named the top place to work in the large company category (more than 150 employees). The firm has been a fixture in Lincoln since 1956.
This is the sixth year of the Best Places to Work in Lincoln competition, which was started by the Woods & Aitken law firm. The program is sponsored annually by Woods & Aitken, the Lincoln Journal Star and the Lincoln Human Resource Management Association.
“It’s an honor to be recognized as one of the best places to work in Lincoln because it shows we value our employees to the point that they’re our top priority in every decision we make,” said Ryan Beckman, president of Olsson. “Olsson has been in business since 1956 only because we hire highly talented employees who always keep our clients first.”
Employees at participating companies complete an online survey, which provides a measure of employee engagement and other workplace factors, including: communication and resources; individual needs; manager effectiveness; personal engagement; team dynamics; and trust in leadership.
Winners were selected based on survey results within small, medium and large company categories.
Olsson Associates offers comprehensive design and consulting services in infrastructure, environmental, field services and facilities. The firm was ranked No. 106 on Engineering News-Record’s top 500 design firms national list in 2017. Established in 1956, the employee-owned firm has more than 1,100 employees, including 275 in Lincoln.
