Blach Ranked Among Top Ten Best Places to Work for Fifth Consecutive Year

San Francisco, Calif. -  (April 23, 2012) -  For the fifth consecutive year, the Silicon Valley Business Journal and the San Francisco Business Times announced that Santa Clara-based Blach Construction Company has made the publications’ annual list of the "Best Places to Work in the Bay Area." 

At an awards gala at the San Francisco Hilton Hotel attended by more than 800 Bay Area business leaders, it was announced that Blach is the #4 ranked company in the “mid-size” category of companies with 101 to 500 employees.  Beginning in 2008, the company has never finished lower than the #6 spot in its size category.  In 2010, Blach was named the #1 best place to work in the Bay Area.

“We are delighted to again achieve such a high ranking from our employees in the 2013 survey," said Gaye Landau-Leonard, vice president of human resources. "Blach has been able to hire, and retain, some of the best and brightest people in the industry over the years. It is gratifying to know that our employees continue to love working at Blach Construction, and that they realize how highly valued and respected they are."

More than 500 companies from around the Bay Area competed for the opportunity to be recognized as one of the top companies in the survey.  In order to qualify, more than 70% of a firm’s employees must successfully complete a confidential survey conducted by Quantum Workplace, which focuses on employee engagement, best practices, work environment and benefits. 

The official results from the survey were published in a special supplement in the April 25th edition of both newspapers.  For a complete listing of the companies honored and accompanying stories, please visit
