Fortune Media and Great Place to Work name Drees Homes to 2023 Best Workplaces in Construction

FORT MITCHELL, KY - Great Place to Work and Fortune have selected Drees Homes, a national, family-owned and operated homebuilder, for the 2023 Best Workplaces in Construction list. This is Drees Homes' first time being named to this prestigious list, coming in at 8th place this year. Earning a spot means that Drees Homes is one of the best companies to work for in the country.

The Best Workplaces in Construction award is based on an analysis of survey responses from over 36,000 employees from Great Place to Work Certified companies in the construction industry.

"We are immensely grateful for the dedicated employees who have earned us a spot on this list," said President and CEO of Drees Homes David Drees. "For 95 years, our company's purpose of enriching lives by making dream homes easy has been achieved by our employees, with a focused approach that always begins and ends with quality, personalization and customer service. We celebrate our company culture and highly valued team through this honor."

The Best Workplaces in Construction list is highly competitive. Great Place to Work, the global authority on workplace culture, determines its lists using its proprietary For All Methodology to evaluate and certify thousands of organizations in America's most extensive ongoing annual workforce study, based on over 1.3 million survey responses and data from companies representing more than 7.5 million employees this year alone.

Survey responses reflect a comprehensive picture of the workplace experience. Honorees were selected based on their ability to offer positive employee outcomes regardless of job role, race, gender, sexual orientation, work status, or another demographic identifier.

"Congratulations to the Best Workplaces in Construction," says Michael C. Bush, CEO of Great Place to Work. "These companies know it isn't the industry - but the company - that determines the employee experience. By putting people first, they are reaping the rewards of higher performance, innovation and customer experience."

"Fortune congratulates the Best Workplaces in Construction," says Fortune Editor-in-Chief Alyson Shontell. "Creating a vibrant workplace culture that draws the best talent in construction is vital for the success of the leaders in this highly competitive industry. It is also what's needed to ignite innovation and deliver best-in-class performance."

This year, Drees Homes was also named one of the U.S. Best Managed Companies by Deloitte Private and The Wall Street Journal for the second year in a row. In addition, Drees Homes was awarded the title of "America's Best Builder" twice by Builder Magazine. The company was also named "National Builder of the Year" by Professional Builder Magazine and received the "National Housing Quality Award" by the National Association of Home Builders.
