This award proves that these firms are among the best in the industry at keeping their clients happy, and I applaud their commitment to understanding the importance of client satisfaction.”
In its seventh year, the Premier Award participants included firms from the United States and Canada, many with international offices, making this a truly global competition. The firms included architects, engineers, geo-scientists, environmental consultants, and others – creating a diverse cross-section of professional services.
Winners were selected based on both the quality of feedback received and the quantity of replies. Feedback quality is measured by score, but also by consistency and the ability to avoid abnormally low scores. The average evaluation of the award winning firms as a group centered in the range of “Exceeded Expectations” thus, making them significantly more client-focused than the other firms. In fact, none of the identified winners had a single score below “Acceptable.”
