Groundworks Wins Top Workplaces 2020

VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (Aug. 14, 2020) – Groundworks has been awarded a Top Workplaces 2020 honor by Inside Business. The award was based solely on unbiased and independent employee feedback scores gathered through a third-party survey. The anonymous survey uniquely measures 15 drivers of engaged cultures that are critical to the success of any organization: including alignment, execution, and connection, just to name a few.

“Our vision at Groundworks is to build the nation’s leading foundation services company. While that vision is simple, it is also big, aggressive, and evolutionary.  To build our Company the right way, we have woven the core values of ownership, professional development, and meritocracy into our workplace.  At Groundworks, we know our future will only be defined by the commitment, accomplishments and hard work of the men and women who make up this company,” said Matt Malone, CEO of Groundworks. “The story of Groundworks is still being written and the members of our Groundworks team are the key to our continued success. I am proud of all they have accomplished and truly thank them for their dedication to our customers, their teammates, and the families that depend on our Company.”

2019 was a record-breaking year of growth for Groundworks and in 2020 the company has already added three additional brands to its family of brands. With a continued focus on providing careers and not mere jobs for skill trade, blue-collar workers, Groundworks continues to navigate these difficult times with increased career opportunities throughout the United States.

Inside Business hired technology firm Energage to anonymously administer the survey. “In times of great change, it is more important than ever to maintain a connection among employees,” said Eric Rubino, Energage CEO. “When you give your employees a voice, you come together to navigate challenges and shape your path forward based on real-time insights into what works best for your organization. The Top Workplaces program can be that positive outcome your company can rally around in the coming months to celebrate leadership and the importance of maintaining an employee-focused culture, even during challenging times.”
