Our mission is to move our clients forward by empowering our people to create innovative, practical, and sustainable solutions. Join us!
Consistent with our Core Values, GZA prides itself on maintaining our collegial environment which allows staff at all levels the opportunity to grow and develop. We value diversity and strive to provide an inclusive environment for all our employees.
In the early stages of your career, you're likely to do a lot of field work which will help to foster your discovery process, develop your observational skills and supplement your classroom knowledge with hands on experience. It’s not uncommon to work on multiple projects at a time or to work with multiple work groups, affording you the opportunity to see a variety of work practices in place on a daily basis. Over time, you’ll find yourself in the office a little more often performing analyses or preparing reports. By working on different projects with different GZA working groups, new staff gains exposure to numerous clients with varying backgrounds providing a sense of overall exposure before settling into a specific discipline.
Learning and Development
We want our staff to succeed and we understand that to continue to succeed, not only do we need to attract the best and the brightest to provide a dynamic work environment, but we need to emphasize providing our employees the training, mentoring and tools to help our employees to grow professionally. We firmly believe in the professional development of our staff and regularly promote from within. Our staff development program includes:
- Personalized Learning through our Learning Management System (LMS).
- Regularly-held, companywide informational seminars.
- Hands-on technical training.
- Brown-bag seminars from some of our in-house experts as well as outside vendors.
- Professional skills training including Project Management, Leadership, and Business Development training.
- Annual company-wide in-house technical conference.
- External seminars and conferences.
As a professional services firm, we understand that a strong mentoring program is the foundation of a successful staff development program, a reflection of the values Don Goldberg and Bill Zoino instilled in the Company over 55 years ago. Every new employee is assigned a mentor when they start work who will help the new employee become better acclimated to GZA. There is ongoing career mentoring in a variety of areas, from technical to management to personal development.
We provide all employees a chance for their voice and ideas to be heard. GZA has a number of Company-wide committees that employees participate in, including:
- Sustainability Initiatives
- Diversity & Inclusion
- Mentoring Committee
- Technical Practice Groups
- Technical Conference Committee
- Technology Advisory Group
- Ethics Committee
- 401(k) Committee
