Redwood City, Calif. (PRWEB) May 2, 2008
W. L. Butler Construction, Inc., a general contractor specializing in superior quality automotive and retail projects, industrial buildings, commercial shells and tenant improvements, was named one of the "Best Places to Work in the Bay Area" once again by The San Francisco Business Times, East Bay Business Times and the Silicon Valley/San Jose Business Journal.
With an overall score of 93.94, the California-based general contractor ranked No. 3 among 50 other companies with 101-500 employees, and was the highest-ranking construction company in this category. Due to its continued growth, W. L. Butler Construction moved up from the small company category, where it ranked within the top 15 last year, to the more competitive medium-sized division this year.
"The company really is a family," says Bill Butler, founder and CEO of W. L. Butler Construction. "I firmly believe that the successes I have are because I was smart enough to surround myself with the right people from the start. Clearly by hiring the best talent, providing them with the tools to grow and aligning with a remarkable pool of business partners …we have created a great company together."
This prestigious award is based on the results obtained from an independent 38-question multiple choice survey gauging how happy at least 70% of the employees within each company are with their work culture, management practices, benefits and overall compensation. Over 500 nominations were received this year.
"We've worked hard to maintain that mom-and-pop feel," says Margaret Esplana, director of human resources for W. L. Butler Construction, Inc. The people are really the essence of why we're a great company. We provide an environment where there are no limitations. If you treat people well, it will show in the numbers."
