A DIVERSE WORKFORCE
GLA believes that a diverse workforce is the foundation of a successful organization. We are proud to be an Equal Opportunity and Affirmative Action Employer.
GLA offers opportunities for advancement and professional growth—including professional development programs, continuing education programs, and professional association memberships—to equip our employees with the skills necessary to advance their careers. We encourage our professionals to publish papers and present at technical conferences to promote their professional advancement and garner recognition for the company.
GLA’s vision is to be a premier provider of professional services, meeting our client’s expectations in delivering projects both on schedule and under budget. These core values serve as the foundation of our firm and are as important today as they were when GLA was founded in 1991.
In recognition of our employees’ commitment to making GLA successful, we have designed an employee benefits program that is intended to take care of our employees and their families when they need it most. We compare the program frequently with the rewards offered at other companies and update it to ensure that we are providing fair compensation, benefits, and a work/life balance for our employees.
The GLA employee benefits program includes health benefits, financial protection, retirement and financial benefits, and work/life balance benefits. Because we value continued education, we offer internal and external professional development opportunities.
