Three Oaks Engineering has been named 2020 Employer of the Year by the North Carolina Triangle chapter of WTS International. Three Oaks was selected because of its commitment to recruiting, retaining, and advancing women. “We appreciate the efforts of WTS to highlight organizations that recruit and retain women as part of their mission to attract, sustain, connect and advance women’s careers to strengthen the transportation industry,” said Three Oaks president Suzanne Unger Young. “Three Oaks is a proud sponsor of WTS.”
Young founded Three Oaks in 2014 after 18 years in the consulting engineering industry. Three Oaks was born of a desire to create the kind of workplace she dreamed of, with a focus on helping clients accomplish infrastructure projects with careful consideration of community and environmental needs while striving to be a sustainable partner in the community and providing employees with the flexibility to balance business and family responsibilities. Over the last six years, Three Oaks has grown to 40 staff across three offices – American Tobacco Campus in Durham (headquarters), Centennial Campus in Raleigh, and Columbia, South Carolina. The company has been recognized for its sustainability practices with bronze status in the Bull City Workplace Challenge and is a silver League of American Bicyclists Bicycle Friendly Business.
