NAPA, Calif. – Central Valley, an LBM 100 building supply company, has been ranked among the Best Places to Work by the North Bay Business Journal. A prestigious award, this marks the third consecutive year that Central Valley has been nominated and received this recognition; a tremendous achievement as the past two employee surveys were conducted during the peaks of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The “Best Places to Work” award is based on the North Bay Business Journal anonymously surveying and analyzing survey responses relating to the employees’ experience. In addition to understanding employee trust and respect, this year’s survey questions dove deep into the company’s operations during COVID, understanding how business operations impacted the emotional and physical wellbeing of employees. Winning is based on employees’ feedback, which is ranked to identify and recognize outstanding employers.
“We work hard to foster a culture that supports the growth and wellbeing of employees,” said Steve Patterson, president and CEO of Central Valley. “We appreciate that employees today have a choice, so creating a workplace culture that allows us to be a top destination for talent remains a commitment for us.”
“For the past 20 months of the pandemic, we have endeavored to cultivate an environment that was communicative and increased our connection with employees. While challenging, the team has gone above and beyond to ensure that employees, despite the inherent challenges, can have a rewarding and safe workplace,” said Christine Hunter, senior vice president of Human Resources.
Central Valley and the other award winners will be recognized at an in-person event on Sept. 15.
