Jun 1, 2020
WIMCO Corp, of Washington, NC was recently named as one of the 2020 Best Employers in North Carolina. This program was created by Business North Carolina and Best Companies Group.
This survey and awards program were designed to identify, recognize, and honor the best employers in North Carolina, benefiting the economy, workforce, and businesses in the state of North Carolina.
Companies from North Carolina entered the two-part survey process to determine the 2020 Best Employers in North Carolina. The first part consisted of evaluating each nominated company’s workplace policies, practices, philosophy, systems, and demographics. The second part consisted of an employee survey to measure the employee experience. The combined scores determined the top companies and the final ranking. Best Companies Group managed the overall registration and survey process, analyzed the data, and determined the final rankings. This is the 2nd time WIMCO was chosen as one of North Carolina’s Best Employers.
WIMCO Corp is a 3rd generation, family-owned General Contractor who is celebrating their 70th year in business. Even after experiencing tremendous growth, WIMCO has managed to maintain and improve the family feel of the organization. WIMCO currently has over 40 commercial construction projects spanning from North Carolina to Louisiana to Kansas. WIMCO also specializes in program management and currently is working with a national retailer managing over 400 projects over the next 6 months. “We go where our clients want us to go and we adapt to what they want us to do and we do it with very driven, talented team members that we call family” Kevin Rawls, CEO & President of WIMCO.
WIMCO’s core values include integrity, on-time delivery, and quality craftsmanship. These values form the basis of who WIMCO is as a company. Behind each company are great leaders and, at WIMCO, that holds true. Leaders that care so deeply about their employees as people first will reap the benefits of a fiercely loyal group of long-tenured team members. The leadership team as well as every member of the WIMCO team, has embraced each other as family, and assistance in times of need is a guarantee at WIMCO. The knowledge that everyone at the company cares for you and is there for you and your family is life-changing for all involved.
“Winning this award simply means that we have treated our people right. If a company is focused on productivity, profits, and only the actual work, and not the people doing it, success may be achieved but not be sustained. Sustainable success is only achieved through self-motivated employees who are that way because they feel valued.” Kevin Rawls, CEO & President of WIMCO.
“Our core focus is and will always be valuing our people as people first and employees second and taking care of our people at any cost. When our employees walk in the door to the family atmosphere that exists here, they succeed because they want to, for the family.”
The company also works tirelessly to continue to add benefits to all employees. Constant improvements to benefit packages, family fun outings, group excursions out of the office, an on-site fitness center, flex time, paid holidays, and the list goes on and on. Work takes up a large percentage of one’s life and WIMCO understands that and makes work fun. It truly is a family environment with endless perks.
