Giroux Glass, Inc. was recently named as one of the Best Places to Work in Los Angeles.
The Los Angeles Business Journal and Workforce Research Group created this sixteenth annual program and survey to identify, recognize and honor the best employers in Los Angeles, benefiting the county’s economy, workforce and businesses. Giroux Glass, Inc. has been named one of this year’s 100 Best Places to Work in Los Angeles.
Nataline Lomedico, CEO and president of Giroux Glass, says of the honor, “It’s reassuring to have an outside source validate that we have created the right kind of culture in our workplace. Our last independent survey of our employees found that 96% of our employees find their work to be engaging, and 90% would recommend working here to their friends, which was wonderful. So this didn’t come as a surprise. But seeing that we rank among the best companies — in the most populated county in the US! — assures me that our culture is on track. Our people are important to us and I’m glad they feel it!”
We wish to congratulate our many construction peers who were also recognized: Build Group, Inc., C. W. Driver Companies, California Home Builders, Clune Construction, Henderson Engineers, Howard Building Corporation, HKS Architects, McCarthy Building Companies, Morley Builders, PBS Engineers, Penta Building Group, Shawmut Design and Construction, Structural Focus and W.E.O’Neil Construction Co.
Giroux Glass is also known for its coveted EMR safety rating, and is dedicated to providing the best work environment anywhere in the construction industry. The company has appeared in other top spots on other lists over the years as one of the best places to work.

Companies from across the county entered the employer assessment process to determine the Best Places to Work in Los Angeles. The LABJ surveyed over 30,000 employees in Los Angeles. The first part consisted of evaluating each nominated company’s benefits, policies, practices, and demographics. This part of the process was worth approximately 20% of the total evaluation. The second part consisted of an employee survey to measure the employee experience. This part of the process was worth approximately 80% of the total evaluation. The combined scores determined the top companies and the final rankings. Workforce Research Group managed the overall registration and survey process in Los Angeles, analyzed the data and determined the final rankings.
The rankings were revealed at a special event on August 11, 2022, and were published in the August 15, 2022, issue of the Los Angeles Business Journal.
