CH2M HILL Recognized as a FORTUNE 100 Best Companies to Work For — 2006

DENVER, 09 January, 2006— CH2M HILL has again been recognized as one of America's top employers by Fortune magazine. This is the second time in the past three years that the firm has appeared on this annual list.

CH2M HILL was selected, in part, due to its competitive compensation and benefits packages, open and accessible communications practices, employee-ownership culture, learning and development opportunities, and work-life balance programs.

Fortune's annual ranking of the "100 Best Companies to Work For" is determined through an extensive nomination and application process. To pick the 100 Best Companies to Work For, Fortune magazine relies on two things: evaluation of the policies and culture of each company, and the opinions of the company's own employees. The latter receives more weight, as two-thirds of the score is based on how randomly selected employees respond to the Great Places to Work Trust Index, a survey measuring the quality of the workplace culture.

"For 60 years, CH2M HILL has worked to distinguish itself, not just as one of the nation's leading full-service infrastructure design and project delivery companies, but also as a respectful, wholesome, and nurturing place to work," said Ralph Peterson, CH2M HILL chairman, president, and CEO. "From its earliest days, the founders of the company sought fair and honorable ways to build the business and share the rewards of success with employees. This recognition is a positive reinforcement of these efforts and the values of CH2M HILL, and we are extremely proud to be among the nation's top employers."

The survey is sent to a minimum of 350 randomly selected employees from each company and asks about things such as attitudes toward management, job satisfaction, and camaraderie. The remaining one-third of the score comes from an evaluation of each company's demographic makeup, pay and benefits programs, and other areas. Each company is scored in four areas: credibility (communication to employees), respect (opportunities and benefits), fairness (compensation, diversity), and pride/camaraderie (philanthropy, celebrations).

To be considered for the award, a company must be at least seven years old with more than 1,000 U.S. employees.
