We are proud to announce that on June 17th Beacon was honored with the Seattle Business magazine’s 100 Best Companies to Work For 2014 award. Our team attended a celebratory event at the Westin Hotel in Seattle, which recognized all of the award recipients from 15 different cities across the state of Washington. Beacon ranked 7th among the 25 small companies honored – not bad for our first showing on this list!
Over the last 15 years Beacon has had the privilege of working with over 30 excellent non-profit and housing authority clients across the state. With the help of trusted funders, consultant partners, attorneys, architects, and general contractors we have assisted our clients in creating or preserving 69 affordable housing communities, serving thousands of low-income Washingtonians along the way.
We work hard to bring our mission-driven culture of caring, collaboration, advocacy, teamwork, high standards, and excellence to every project we undertake with a client. In turn, the Beacon leadership team works diligently to ensure these same qualities are maintained among our staff and sets a tone in our office that is based on respect, integrity, fun, and flexibility. It was exciting to have these values recognized by this award from Seattle Business magazine.
The award also coincides nicely with the launch of our new website, including an updated logo, which will hopefully make access to our services and staff more intuitive. There remains a great deal of work to be done to create the quality housing that low-income households deserve. We are fortunate to be doing this work together, with our great clients and partners. On behalf of the entire Beacon team, thank you for 15 great years! We look forward to working with you for many more into the future.
