Kansas City's McCownGordon named Best Place to Work

Kansas City-based McCownGordon has been selected as one of Fortune’s 100 Best Medium Size Companies to Work For.

Selected in partnership with Great Places to Work, Fortune conducts an employee survey and gains feedback from more than 315,000 people to help shape its annual list. Each company’s score is based on Trust Index survey feedback from a random sample of employees.

“As a 100-percent employee-owned organization, our employees know they have a voice in our organization and a direct impact on our success. We place a heavy focus on creating a great working environment because we understand that associates who feel valued, appreciated and respected flourish and provide better service for our clients,” said Ramin Cherafat, chief executive officer of McCownGordon Construction.

Fortune’s Best Companies to Work For measures companies on executive team effectiveness, innovation, and people focused programs. It also considers the quality of company leaders, support of personal and professional lives and employees’ relationships with their colleagues. Survey responses are considered together with evaluation of company programs and practices.

McCownGordon earned a place in the rankings by demonstrating high levels of trust, credible and respectful leadership, pride and camaraderie in the workplace.
