Garver honored at Zweig Group's Marketing Excellence Awards
A redesigned website aimed at highlighting Garver’s 100th anniversary celebration, the company’s award-winning culture, and the various ways in which it enhances clients through infrastructure design earned honors at Zweig Group’s Elevate AEC Conference last week in Las Vegas.
The new GarverUSA.com, which went live in 2018, earned first place in the website category of the Marketing Excellence Awards, which capped off the annual conference. Garver was also recognized for being named the No. 1 Best Firm to Work For among companies with more than 200 employees. Announced in June, it was the second consecutive year, and third time in the last four years, that Garver earned the award that recognizes firms for culture, best practices, employee benefits and retention rates, professional development, and other factors.
Garver’s new website was created entirely by its in-house Communications Team to provide a streamlined overall message with improved site navigation directing visitors to company news, service line capabilities, project descriptions, and offered benefits. The website team included Digital Design Lead Derek Berry, Web Developer Alan Watson, and Corporate Editor Troy Schulte.
“As a growing firm in a competitive field, we depend on Garver’s website to highlight what sets us apart,” said Garver Communications Team Manager Guy Choate, who accepted the award along with Corporate Communications Leader Laura Nick. “GarverUSA.com is sometimes the first introduction people have to our firm, and we want them to immediately understand that we have an award-winning culture created by employees who are well-connected in their local markets and experts in their technical fields.”
In addition to the awards, Nick joined other industry leaders for a panel discussion titled “Compensation in a Tight AEC Labor Market: From Salaries to Incentives to Perks.” Nick touched on how Garver has responded to the challenges facing AEC firms in acquiring the qualified professionals needed to accommodate growing infrastructure needs across the country.
