Gannett Fleming received the 2013 American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) Superior Employer Recognition Award for Support of Younger Members in the Private Sector.
Founded in 1852 and representing more than 145,000 members of the civil engineering profession worldwide, ASCE is America’s oldest national engineering society. Its mission is to provide essential value to members and partners, advance civil engineering, and serve the public good.
The firm was selected based on its encouragement and support of Younger Member involvement in ASCE activities, such as national and regional board participation, conference attendance, and white paper publication. Gannett Fleming’s tuition reimbursement and flexible schedule benefits made the firm an excellent candidate for this award.
One public sector and one private sector employer were selected to receive this recognition for 2013. The award was presented at the Engineers Week Awards Banquet on Feb. 22, 2014, at the Engineers Club of Western Pennsylvania.
The Employer Recognition Program was a result of the ASCE Strategic Plan, which called for the establishment of a program to recognize and acknowledge employers who support Younger Member involvement in ASCE. Younger Members are defined as ASCE members of age 35 and younger. The Committee of Younger Members implements the Employer Recognition Program.
