Newspaper Ranks Turner #22 on Top Midsized Companies List

Turner Construction Company has been ranked among the Top 100 Workplaces in Atlanta in a special section in the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.  The survey of large, mid-sized and small businesses ranked companies based on the direction of the company, execution, work conditions, career paths, management, pay and benefits.

The newspaper noted: “This special section provides plenty of information on how to treat employees the right way for the right reasons. The survey results indicate that the cost is little. Pay and benefits are clearly less important to most metro Atlanta employees than intangibles like appreciation and strong leadership.  Providing first-class service often depends on employees who are willing to go the extra mile.
