Our cultureRushing - Best Workplaces in Washington 2020

We’ve created an environment where people are excited and challenged by their work, find a rewarding work/life balance and care about their co-workers and the community we live in.

We’re also big on collaboration and co-operation, and avoid unnecessary structure and habitual thinking. We work hard, have fun, and respect each other. We think it’s the recipe for standing out in the crowd—and so do our clients and employees. That’s why we rank among the best workplaces in Washington state.

Rushing - GEN Index, Most Equitable Workplaces

Rushing is committed to equity and transparency. As a team, we pride ourselves on inclusion, fostering a space in which everyone has a voice. Rushing is proud to be a WBE (Women’s Business Enterprise) and one of the largest women-owned businesses in the Puget Sound area. Rushing is an equal opportunity employer and is opposed to discrimination of any kind. Here are some of our commitments to advancing social equity and change:

  • The Rushing Equity, Diversity and Inclusion committee (REDI) is a grassroots effort to further equity and diversity at Rushing. Committee members come from across disciplines at Rushing to host conversations and workshops, lead volunteer opportunities and support certification efforts.
  • With the mechanical engineering industry still only comprising of ~7% females, Rushing is committed to bringing more women into engineering by fostering a culture of support, mentorship and equity. Rae Anne has made it her mission to change this gender imbalance in engineering from the day she graduated from college and her hard work is evident in her support of women at Rushing and in the industry as a whole. She mentors and supports women through her involvement in organizations like the Clinton Global Initiative, ASHRAE (via ASHRAE Women in Industry and Women Who Lead), and as a featured engineer on the National Academy of Engineering’s Engineer Girl forum, focused on inspiring girls to learn about and consider the field of engineering.

  • We participate in International Living Future Institute’s
