In 2021, RRM was chosen as one of the Best Firms to Work For within the AEC industry in the United States and Canada! Zweig Group’s Best Firms to Work For Award recognizes AEC firms in the US and Canada based on their workplace practices, employee benefits, employee retention rates, and much more. RRM was ranked in two categories, Firm size (100-200) and Multidiscipline. One of the main reasons we achived the award is because of the amazing team here at RRM!
Our Commitment to a Diverse and Equitable Workplace
RRM sees diversity as central to its mission and is committed to fostering an equitable and inclusive environment that cultivates a sense of belonging for all its members. RRM is founded on sustainability, collaboration, and innovation. Being a company that is 100% employee-owned is a reflection of our commitment to the diverse people who make our company great. We believe diversity, equity, and inclusion propel innovation forward, enhance our design, and are key signifiers of a thriving community.
We value the diversity of intersecting identities and strive to maintain an environment that is equitable, respectful, and inclusive. We expect our work environments to be places of diverse engagement and informed discourse. Ultimately, we acknowledge that our standards of excellence as an Architecture and Design firm are not separate from the values of diversity, equity, and inclusion.
Working well together
We’re a multidiscipline design firm. That means that 140+ design professionals from 6 distinct services call RRM home. We’re a highly collaborative group of creative individuals, ranging from Lief who is currently checking out a local playground equipment manufacturer, to Apryl who is intently fine-tuning the CAD model for an updated multifamily project in Santa Barbara. Our service groups frequently interact with each other. On any given day, visitors to our offices will observe our engineers coordinating with architects while landscape architects peer over the shoulders of planners. This close collaboration adds a significant contribution to the overall success of the project.
