Estero, FL — Suffolk, one of the most successful and innovative builders in the country, is proud to be Certified™ as a 2022 Great Place to Work® for the third year in a row.

Great Place to Work® is the global authority on workplace culture, employee experience, and the leadership behaviors proven to deliver market-leading revenue, employee retention and increased innovation.

“At Suffolk, we believe our people are our greatest asset – I often say we do not build buildings, we build people. To be recognized as Great Place to Work-Certified
™ for the third consecutive year is a great honor and privilege for our entire organization,” said CEO and Chairman John Fish. “We owe our continued success to our employees who have helped us create a unique culture and collaborative, innovative and vibrant work environment on Suffolk jobsites and offices throughout the country. It is no accident that Suffolk continues to successfully recruit and retain some of the greatest talent in our industry.”
