Transwestern Named to Fortune’s 2017 Best Workplaces for Diversity List

DENVER – Great Place to Work® and Fortune magazine have named the commercial real estate firm, Transwestern, one of the “100 Best Workplaces for Diversity.” This honor comes on the heels of a series of awards for Transwestern, including being recognized by the same organizations as a “Best Workplace for Women” and a “Best Workplace for Millennials.”

“It’s an honor to be recognized for our efforts to cultivate and provide opportunities for a talented team of professionals – a group that represents all ages, backgrounds, ethnicities and cultures,” said Larry P. Heard, CEO of the Transwestern family of companies. “We believe that tapping into a diverse mix of experiences, personalities, ideas and problem-solving approaches, while at the same time sharing a common purpose, is what makes Transwestern successful.”

Transwestern’s commitment to celebrate and nurture its diverse workforce not only equips teams to deliver well-informed, flexible solutions to real estate owners, users and investors, but also fosters a positive work environment throughout the organization. Of those surveyed in 2017, 97 percent say Transwestern has a great atmosphere, 96 percent believe there is great communication, and 95 percent feel there are great challenges for team members.

The ranking considered more than 440,000 employee surveys from organizations in a wide range of industries across the country. Great Place to Work, a research and consulting firm, evaluated more than 50 elements of team members’ experience on the job. These included professional development, behaviors linked to innovation, leadership confidence and consistent treatment among employees of different backgrounds.

“The Best Workplaces for Diversity have achieved something beyond basic fairness. They find ways to connect with each and every employee, listening to their challenges and building on their talents,” said Michael Bush, CEO of Great Place to Work.
