Top Workplaces Hero

GRAEF, an award-winning engineering, planning and design firm has been recognized as a Top Workplace by Milwaukee Journal Sentinel and Energage LLC, an employee engagement technology partner.

The confidential survey uniquely measures 15 culture drivers that are critical to the success of any organization: including alignment, execution, and connection, and more. The annual list honors companies for their exceptional workplace culture and employee satisfaction.

"We are thrilled to receive this recognition and are proud of the collaborative and innovative work environment we've created at GRAEF,” said Jenny Christel Human Resources Director of the firm. "Our team is at the heart of everything we do, and we will continue to prioritize their well-being and personal growth."

The selection process for the top workplace award is based on employee feedback collected through anonymous surveys. The survey covers key areas such as leadership, company culture, communication, and work-life balance. Companies are then ranked based on their overall score in each category.


“Earning a Top Workplaces award is a badge of honor for companies, especially because it comes authentically from their employees,” said Eric Rubino, Energage CEO. “That's something to be proud of. In today's market, leaders must ensure they’re allowing employees to have a voice and be heard. That's paramount. Top Workplaces do this, and it pays dividends.”

A key factor contributing to GRAEF’s distinction as a great workplace is the dedication from leadership to the well-being of their employees. By implementing flexible work arrangements, comprehensive benefits packages, and wellness initiatives, GRAEF empowers their employees to achieve their best and lead fulfilling lives.

"We believe that a positive and supportive work environment leads to higher quality work and better outcomes for our clients," said John Kissinger, President and CEO of GRAEF. "We are grateful to our employees for their contributions to our success and for making GRAEF a great place to work."

The recognition as a top workplace is yet another milestone for GRAEF as it continues to expand its services, office locations, and influence in the industry.
