WPC Honored as a Top Workplace in the 2023 Orlando Sentinel List for Its People-First Culture
As WPC is nearing our semicentennial anniversary in 2024, we are thrilled to announce our inclusion in the prestigious Orlando Sentinel's 2023 TOP WORKPLACES list. This accolade underscores WPC's steadfast commitment to nurturing a people-first culture that prioritizes the happiness and well-being of our workforce. The Orlando Sentinel's Top Workplaces program, designed to recognize outstanding employers across Central Florida, relies on comprehensive employee surveys to gauge workplace satisfaction.
"Being named a Top Workplace by the Orlando Sentinel is a source of immense pride for us at WPC, as it reflects the direct feedback and high esteem in which our team holds us," said Jeff Forrest, WPC President/CEO, who continues, "For nearly 50 years, we've recognized that our employees are the bedrock of our success. We invest heavily in implementing a range of initiatives to ensure their health, safety, and overall well-being."
One of the cornerstones of WPC's recognition as a top workplace is its unwavering commitment to our employee-centric programs, here are just a few examples:
Healthy Employee Programs: We adopt a holistic approach to employee well-being, creating a safe work environment while nurturing and rewarding healthy habits. These programs include paid incentives to stop smoking, a Run Walk Club, paid gym memberships and more.
Paid Time for Community Outreach: WPC encourages its employees to actively participate in community service by providing paid time for community outreach activities.
Employee Stay Interview Program: In our continued pursuit of attracting and retaining top talent in the industry, WPC (in 2023) introduced its Employee Stay Interview Program. The opposite of an exit interview, this innovative initiative involves supervisors engaging in one-on-one discussions with valued employees to gain insights into their job satisfaction, as well as identifying areas where improvements can be made.
WPC's dedication to our employees and the community underscores our unwavering commitment to excellence and our mission of Building Beyond the Blueprint® in delivering construction solutions. As we enter our semicentennial year in 2024, we stand ready to uphold our tradition of creating a workplace where employees thrive, contribute, and succeed.
Founded nearly 50 years ago, WPC has been the energy behind some of the most exciting, community-building projects in Florida. Having completed over 200 million square feet of construction, WPC's combined experience, innovative approach, and dedication to building and nurturing relationships with employees, subcontractors, and suppliers speaks to their core value of Building Beyond the Blueprint®.
