Clune Construction is a national, employee-owned general contractor, with more than 600 talented professionals located in five offices across the U.S. Since 1997, the company has been providing construction management services for some of the most well known companies in the world. Clune manages more than $1 billion in construction projects annually yet still manages to maintain its dedication to treating employees like family. It puts clients first and adheres to a strict ethical code – winning awards for its ethical business practices and for being a great place to work for employees.

Clune owes much of its success to the fact that it is dedicated to treating employees like family. Clune repeatedly finds itself near or at the very top of the Best Places to Work in LA list, something achieved during rapid growth. The company treats employees well and recognizes hard work. Clune has exceptional benefits, including 100% paid health insurance premiums for employees and dependents (with participation in a Wellness Initiative), team-building activities and work life balance. Among the many aspects of Clune that employees love is the company tradition of recognizing all tenured employees by five-year increments at Clune’s annual all-staff meeting in Chicago. Clune also has a strong culture of promoting from within and all promotions are also announced at the annual Chicago meeting. Regular company engagement with community and charitable activities further enhances the “work at Clune” experience, with employees routinely getting together to participate in the Cycle for Heroes, and Night Run for Stand Up for Cancer, among others.
