Patterson & Dewar Engineers, Inc. (P&D) is pleased to announce it has been selected as one of The Atlanta Journal Constitution’s Top Workplaces in Atlanta for 2015. The Top Workplaces are based solely on employee feedback collected from surveys conducted by WorkplaceDynamics, LLP, a leading research firm on organizational health and employee engagement.

P&D is an employee-owned company, and as Mike Kline, president and CEO, explains, “Although we preach a client-centric culture at P&D, we are very aware that our employees are our most important asset. As such we are increasing our focus on employee development, mentoring, work/life balance and leadership development, which will help ensure the sustainability and future success of our company.”

Project Manager & Electrical Commissioning Agent, Jeff Womack adds, “Each day is a new experience. You, as the individual, can direct your own success. Each person has the opportunity to share ideas on the growth of the company, and to improve work processes and practices.”

P&D fosters a collaborative culture where managers and staff routinely work side by side in the office and in the field. This model allows employees to share knowledge and experience blended with new ideas and fresh perspectives to strengthen the team and enrich the customer experience.

Several employees have spent their entire careers with P&D, honing and perfecting approaches to exceeding our clients’ expectations. Others, who worked within the industries we serve prior to joining our team, now broaden our collective expertise. P&D supports continuous professional and personal development with training and mentoring, and we encourage employees to find opportunities to apply and extend their talents.

Distribution Department Manager Nicole Sullivan says, “I’m proud to work for a company where the employees genuinely care about their clients and coworkers.”
