The prestigious ranking is Shawmut’s latest national recognition for the company’s elite culture of care. We’ve received more than 70 best places to work awards including numerous accolades within the company’s regional markets of Boston, Los Angeles, Miami, Providence, and more.

As a 100% employee-owned company, each employee is charged with thinking and acting like an owner—which translates into a collaborative, efficient, and diverse workplace. Nationwide, our employee-owners continue to deliver a better building experience, uphold a culture of belonging, and actively drive a safe, innovative environment—all while outperforming expectations every day.

We’re proud of the culture we’ve built and to be consistently recognized as a great place to work. Here’s a few reasons our employees say Shawmut is a best place to work:

A culture of belonging

Shawmut is committed to the wellbeing of its workforce and is laser focused on creating an inclusive and diverse environment where all employees can contribute to their fullest potential. We work to continually maintain 100% pay equity, offer sponsorship and mentorship programs that ensure employees are receiving support and equal opportunity for promotions, and have an established Diversity Leadership Council that works to drive Shawmut’s DEI initiatives.

Safety first

We’ve built a culture of safety that extends beyond the bounds of our jobsites and into our offices, the local community, and general public. Nothing is more important than safety and at Shawmut it’s about more than just compliance, it's about prevention. Our employees agree that we are doing our part to actively drive a safe environment with a top-down, bottom-up approach that drives innovation and continuous improvement. 

Giving back to the community

From raising more than $1,770,000 to-date for Dana–Farber Cancer Institute through our annual participation in the Pan-Mass Challenge; to supporting local organizations such as Rebuilding Together NYC, The Posse Foundation, and Cradles to Crayons; and mentoring the future talent of the AEC industry, Shawmut is dedicated to giving back to the community.

Great rewards

Shawmut knows that the best way to attract and retain great people is to offer great benefits. And Shawmut's are among the best in the industry. With perks like an Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP), a company-paid health coverage option, college tuition reimbursement, a comprehensive Paid Family Leave benefit, and Shawmut Flex—one of the most innovative flexible work programs in the industry—we stand behind our commitment.
