The Orange County Register has named Sukut Construction as one of the top companies to work for in the area. We couldn’t agree more. At a time when layoffs are ripping through the industry Sukut is still adding people. The link above doesn’t tell you much about the company, but check out what Equipment World has written about their digital/earthmoving capabilities and their rental of CARB compliant equipment to contractors lacking these emissions-friendly machines. Below the break I’ll leave you with a quote from their press release. This is a company well worth studying if you’re looking for ways to improve yours.
SANTA ANA, Calif.- February 19, 2009–Sukut Construction, Inc., the largest mass excavation and landfill company in California, was ranked number three among the top small companies to work for by the Orange County Register. As many companies are downsizing, Santa Ana-based Sukut is on an upward growth path, pledging to maintain its status as a top company to work for in 2009.
Sukut is an employee-owned firm dedicated to providing its workforce with cutting-edge training that keeps their job skills sharp. As a result, the company is at the forefront of its industry in many areas, from being one of the greenest construction companies to one of the best to work for.
“What makes this such an impressive award, is that it was based on feedback from employee surveys,” said Michael Crawford, Sukut CEO/president. “It’s assuring when you know your employees enjoy coming to work.”
The surveys contained 20 questions and were intended to probe into different aspects of the workplace experience.
Crawford says that the many awards the company has won are an indication of the strong employee dedication and competency. These awards and recognitions play a role in keeping employee moral high. Three of the most recent awards Sukut has taken home are: Cal-OSHA’s prestigious Golden Gate award, which required passing tough criteria set by Cal-OSHA, measuring on-site safety during Sukut’s cleanup of the San Bernardino wildfires. Cal-OSHA made weekly observations throughout each phase of the project. Sukut met or exceeded all specified guidelines established by Cal-OSHA to receive this prestigious award, each exemplifying outstanding work according to Cal-OSHA’s measurement. Sukut also received the Safety Achievement award for working without an OSHA recordable (medical only) lost time injury in the past year and the Engineering News Record award for innovation and leadership in the construction industry worldwide.
Sukut hosts a strong management team dedicated to providing a fertile place to learn solution-solving methods. As the company’s management team vows to continue encouraging its employees to exceed expectations, Sukut’s employees look forward to, again, participating in Orange County Register’s competition next year.
