DGR Engineering Receives Two Awards

DGR Engineering has recently received two awards of note, one relating to its performance in several key metrics important to the consulting engineering industry, and another that affirms its status as an employer of choice in this region.

For the tenth  year in a row, DGR Engineering has been selected for PSMJ Resources, Inc.’s exclusive “Circle of Excellence” as one of 68 exceptional architecture and engineering firms across the country. DGR Engineering has earned this award every year since 2014.

PSMJ Resources is a management consulting firm for the architecture and engineering industries. Each year PSMJ conducts a survey of firms to highlight those who are successful in areas such as productivity, business development, staff growth, staff turnover, and overhead management. Only 20 percent of this year’s 339 participants were named to The Circle of Excellence list. Participating firms were evaluated by comparing several key performance measurements important to the successful operation of an engineering business against industry benchmarks developed through evaluation of data.

In addition, for the sixth year in a row, DGR Engineering has been recognized with a “Top Workplaces” honor by Iowa Top Workplaces and The Des Moines Register. The honor is based on employee feedback gathered through a third-party anonymous survey. The survey is administered by employee engagement technology partner Energage, LLC and measures multiple culture drivers that are critical to the success of any organization, including alignment, execution, and connection, just to name a few.

“We are both humbled and grateful to have been selected for these awards for a number of years,” said Blair Metzger, President of DGR Engineering.  “From both the business operations and employee satisfaction perspectives, our long-term strategy of taking care of our team members, and becoming trusted advisors to our clients by establishing deep and lasting relationships, has paid many dividends, including these awards.”
