Goodfellow Bros. (GBI), a fourth-generation family-owned large heavy-civil contractor, announced today that it has been officially recognized as a Great Place to Work-CertifiedTM company. Great Place to Work® is the global authority on workplace culture, employee experience, and the leadership behaviors proven to deliver market-leading revenue, employee retention and increased innovation.
“One hundred years ago, my great-grandfather founded our company with a ‘people first’ culture where everyone is appreciated and valued,” said Chad Goodfellow, CEO of Goodfellow Bros. “He would be incredibly proud of this achievement, as we wouldn’t be where we are today without the immense talent, passion and hard work that our employees put in every day. As we begin our next century of service, I am very excited about our team and what can accomplish together.”
According to Great Place to Work research, job seekers are 4.5 times more likely to find a great boss at a Certified great workplace. Additionally, employees at Certified workplaces are 93% more likely to look forward to coming to work, and are twice as likely to be paid fairly, earn a fair share of the company’s profits and have a fair chance at promotion.
