Redwood, CA (PRWEB) December 12, 2008
W. L. Butler Construction, Inc., a general contractor specializing in superior quality automotive and retail projects, industrial buildings, commercial shells and tenant improvements, is officially a great place to work, according to a survey of small companies by the Orange County Register.
W. L. Butler Construction ranked No. 1 among 47 other nominees with 50-149 employees residing in Orange County. In fact, the company had an astonishing 86% response rate (which is double the average/requirement).
An independent questionnaire issued earlier this year by Workplace Dynamics, LLC determined that the people and the culture are driving factors behind W. L. Butler Construction's placement as a top work place. Team members from the Irvine office were asked to provide feedback on essential motivators including direction, career, execution, conditions, managers and pay/benefits. Questions specific to career ranked highest above all participants in the small-sized group, and the company was ranked significantly above average in all six categories.
"We had more 10-15 year tenured team members than the other companies in our division, says Brett Crail, director of operations for W. L. Butler Construction. "This is no surprise since we continually promote growth and explore new challenges internally. The company has personally given me opportunities over the last 10 years I wouldn't have otherwise had without an advanced education."
Final placement in the annual listing was determined based on confidential responses from 23,325 employees at 141 companies in Orange County. The top 60 companies in the region were spread among three categories relative to their size.
"Everyone is involved in setting the direction of the company, and we don't strive for anything that would change that culture," says Frank York, president of W. L. Butler Construction.
The construction company, headquartered in Redwood City, was also named among the top three "Best Places to Work in the Bay Area" earlier this year by The San Francisco Business Times, East Bay Business Times and the Silicon Valley/San Jose Business Journal.
