SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 02/21/12 -- Bechtel has been named a top employer by the readers of Minority Engineer magazine, once again earning a spot on the magazine's annual Top 50 Employers list. The list is based on results of a survey that asked readers for which companies would they most prefer to work or believe are progressive in hiring minority engineers.
This is the eighth consecutive year Bechtel has been on the list.
'Bechtel provides employees with unique career opportunities around the world and we know that a diverse workforce is essential to our success,' said John MacDonald, Bechtel's manager of human resources. 'We appreciate the recognition from the readers of Minority Engineer magazine, which reflects the inclusive work environment Bechtel employees strive to create for one another.'
