KHS&S Named One of the Best Places to Work in Orange County


Anaheim, California, October 22, 2010 –KHS&S, one of the world’s leading design-assist specialty building companies, was recently named one of the Best Places to Work in Orange County by the Orange County Business Journal. KHS&S ranked 14 out of 21 large-company employers, jumping five spots from 2009’s inaugural Best Places to Work survey.

“Being recognized for how good employees feel about where they work is one of the highest honors a company can receive,” said Dave Suder, president/CEO for KHS&S-West Coast. “As an employee-owned company, one of our goals is to create an environment where employees feel valued and central to our success. To see this translate into everyday job satisfaction is a reward in itself.”

The Best Places to Work rankings are based on extensive company research, including an employee engagement and satisfaction survey about culture, training, pay and benefits and an employer questionnaire that details policies, practices, benefits and more. Workers and management at nearly 100 Orange County employers were surveyed. The final list of 45, divided into three categories by size, represents companies that scored highest on a proprietary ranking performed by an independent company.

According to the Business Journal, companies making the list are credited for “creating a dynamic work environment characterized by open communication, professional respect and support, work/life balance, equitable remuneration and rewards and the synergy that results from strong teamwork and healthy camaraderie.”

KHS&S-West Coast was founded in 1996. Company benefits include a bonus program; a 401(k) program with discretionary company match; medical, dental and vision insurance; tuition assistance and wellness programs. The company became an Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP) company in 2006. Since that time, employees have given back to their communities by volunteering more than 2,500 hours and raising money for dozens of causes, including food drives; social programs; disease research, treatment and prevention programs; and aid for military troops.
