At Perkins+Will, we see endless possibilities in the way we influence buildings and ideas that honor the broader goals of society. At the heart of this belief is that our people are the most valuable asset we bring to our work.
We are the proud recipient of the Best Architecture Firm award in the USGBC's Best of Building Awards, Building Design + Construction Best Firm to Work For, #2 among “The World’s Top 10 Most Innovative Companies in Architecture” by Fast Company and annually Perkins+Will employees are honored recipients of the "40 under 40" awards program.
Perkins+Will is proud to offer innovative programs which foster a stimulating, socially responsible and healthy environment to work and to excel!
Commitment to Your Growth
We believe continuous learning contributes to the success of our employees and achievement of our organizational goals, while maintaining the culture that has given us our competitive edge for over three quarters of a century.
Our Leadership Institute recognizes the importance of investing in our future leaders. This program assists the next generation in developing the skills necessary for leadership.
Our Innovation Incubator program then fosters an invigorating culture of innovation by supporting small, focused research projects proposed by staff members through micro-grants of money and time. These micro-grants provide incentive for proactive idea exploration, technical development and design collaboration. Results of this research further our design work as well as contribute to the knowledge base of our industry.
Value Your Health + Wellness
At Perkins+Will, we place a high value on Employee Wellness, offering wellness fairs and free flu shots. Employees receive an annual wellness reimbursement towards a fitness program for themselves and their dependents! Discover more about our most recent Wellness Week on the Perkins+Will blog, Ideas + Buildings. We care about the environment and provide a transportation subsidy to encourage and promote public transportation.
We care deeply about the environment, too. As a case in point, our Vancouver studio has been named one of Canada’s Greenest Employers for 10 consecutive years. Watch this video to hear from our Vancouver team about what makes working at Perkins+Will so great. A transportation subsidy is also provided to employees to promote the use of public transportation.
Impact Your Community
We are committed to the 1% Solution and value social responsibility. We proudly volunteer our time across the country. During the aftermath of Katrina, we put our minds and bodies to work towards rebuilding New Orleans. You will often find an office volunteering to enrich their local community. Read more about our commitment to social purpose with our Social Responsibility Initiative Annual Report.
Diversity + Inclusion
We embrace diversity, valuing and leveraging our differences, will make us stronger and better. Changing demographics, globalization, and diversity will continue to have a huge influence on our clients and in our workplaces. By moving beyond barriers and stereotypes of culture, color, race, religion, age, sexuality, physical abilities, generational differences, economic settings, etc. we can form teams of talented professionals who will unleash their collective talents to create excellent work.
