Walbridge is among 2023’s “Best and Brightest Companies To Work For In The Nation” and “Best & Brightest in Wellness,” acknowledging the company’s team member development, DEI and culture.
The awards, announced annually by Corp! Magazine and The National Association of Business Resources, review companies nationwide, assessing them “based on categories such as communication, work-life balance, employee education, diversity, recognition, retention and more.”
The top 101 organizations are included in the “Best & Brightest in the Nation.”
“Walbridge has an unwavering commitment to fostering an inclusive environment where individual team members are empowered to thrive,” Walbridge President John Rakolta III said. “The diverse perspectives our team members provide are a cornerstone of the company’s continued development. We’re humbled by this award and grateful for the dedicated team members of this organization.”
Corp! Magazine and The National Association of Business Resources also named Walbridge among the Nation’s 2023 “Best & Brightest in Wellness.” The Nation’s Best and Brightest in Wellness winning companies were evaluated by an assessment created and administered by a leading wellness research firm. Each entry was examined statistically for quantitative and qualitative data.
“This unique program highlights organizations that promote a culture of wellness; and those that plan, implement, and evaluate efforts in employee well-being to make their business and the community a healthier place to live and work,” according to Corp! Magazine.
Rick Krout, Walbridge’s asst. vice president of human resources, called the honors “a testament to the team-centric approach of the Walbridge team.”
“We’re very focused on offering a workplace that promotes physical, mental and emotional well-being,” Krout said. “Walbridge is dedicated to supporting those in their professional growth and personal journeys toward a healthier, happier life.”
