J.F. Brennan Company Named To Fortune’s ‘Best Workplaces In Construction’ List

J.F. Brennan Company Inc., La Crosse, Wis., has been honored as “One of the Best Workplaces In Construction” by Great Place To Work and Fortune magazine. Brennan came in at 14th place among small and mid-size companies; it’s the first time the firm has been included on the list.

The Best Workplaces in Construction award is based on analysis of survey responses from more than 25,000 employees from Great Place to Work-Certified™ companies in the construction industry. In that survey, 88 percent of Brennan’s employees said the company is a great place to work. This number is 31 points higher than the average U.S. company.

Companies were only considered by Fortune magazine if they had been a Great Place to Work-Certified organization. Brennan has been certified as a Great Place to Work for the last six years running.

“We are honored to be recognized for our workplace culture by such a respected publication and by the Great Place to Work organization,” said Matt Binsfeld, Brennan president and CEO. “Workplace trust is a primary data point by which companies are evaluated in the Best Workplaces rankings; trust is the foundation of any high performing team. At Brennan, trusting in one another to work safely, to deliver high quality results and to provide mentorship is what separates us from other companies. We are incredibly fortunate and grateful that so many fantastic, talented people choose to make their careers here at Brennan.”

Great Place to Work is the only company culture award in America that selects winners based on how fairly employees are treated. Companies are assessed on how well they create a great employee experience that cuts across race, gender, age, disability status or any aspect of who employees are or what their role is.

“These companies have adapted to the challenges of an ever-changing workplace by their commitment to inclusive, high-trust cultures where employees are treated as human beings first and foremost,” said Michael Bush, CEO of Great Place to Work. “Congratulations to the Best Workplaces in Construction.”
