Business Wire 17-Apr-2019 10:00 AM

Granite (NYSE:GVA) announced today it has been named by Forbes as one of America's Best Mid-Size Employers for the fourth year in a row. The annual Forbes ranking honors employers based on an independent survey asking how likely employees would be to recommend their employer—and other employers in their respective industries—to someone else.

"Being named as one of America's Best Mid-Size Employers for the fourth year in a row is a distinct honor made possible because of our employees," said Granite President and Chief Executive Officer, James H. Roberts. "We have the best people in the industry. By living our Core Values, our employees cultivate an environment others want to join."

Forbes, in partnership with Statista.com, conducted an anonymous survey of over 50,000 U.S. employees working for large and mid-size U.S. firms, divisions of international companies or institutions to compile the list. Respondents were asked to rate 30 work related attributes grouped in terms of atmosphere, compensation and diversity to ascertain if the employers make their employees feel secure, understood, needed and inspired.
