"When employees know they are valued, not just as workers, but as people, their job satisfaction fuels positive and productive interactions." ~ William J. Gilbane III, SVP
New York, New York (PRWEB) December 09, 2014
As the song goes, “If you can make it there, you can make it anywhere.” Crain’s New York Business has named Gilbane Building Company one of the “Best Places to Work” in New York City, ranking the company 30th out of its 100 honorees. This distinction, awarded annually, is designed to identify, recognize and honor the best employers in New York City, benefiting the city’s economy, workforce and businesses.
William J. Gilbane III, senior vice president of Gilbane Building Company said, “We start our meetings at Gilbane with what we call a “Gilbane Cares” moment where one person voluntarily shares a tip or anecdote from their personal or professional life that advocates safety. It may seem like a small thing, but it’s one that speaks to our people-first culture and really resonates with employees.” He continued, “This simple practice tells them their well-being and safety is most important to us. And when employees know they are valued, not just as workers, but as people, and they see that their company does more than just walk the walk, their job satisfaction fuels positive and productive interactions both in the office and out on job sites among clients and subcontractors. I couldn’t be more proud of our people and this incredible honor.”
A fifth generation family business, Gilbane sets itself apart from other businesses by offering its employees excellent benefits; an engaging and lively work environment; a work culture defined by its “Gilbane Cares” philosophy where every employee is treated like a member of the family; managers who empower their people to excel and embrace innovation; and top training opportunities unparalleled in the construction industry through its own Gilbane University.
