Tennessean Names Wil-Ro Top Workplaces

Wil-Ro Wins Tennessean Top Workplaces for Second Consecutive Year

GALLATIN, Tenn. – June 29, 2022 – Wil-Ro, Inc. has been awarded a Top Workplaces 2022 honor by Tennessean Top Workplaces. The list is based solely on employee feedback gathered through a third-party survey administered by employee engagement technology partner Energage LLC. The anonymous survey uniquely measures 15 culture drivers that are critical to the success of any organization: including alignment, execution, and connection, just to name a few.

“During this very challenging time, Top Workplaces has proven to be a beacon of light for organizations, as well as a sign of resiliency and strong business performance,” said Eric Rubino, Energage CEO. “When you give your employees a voice, you come together to navigate challenges and shape your path forward. Top Workplaces draw on real-time insights into what works best for their organization, so they can make informed decisions that have a positive impact on their people and their business.”

Being named a Top Workplace is a big deal — only 106 companies made this year’s list. This is a great honor, especially because the judges are each company’s employees.

“Wil-Ro is proud to be a TN Top Workplace for 2022, and we attribute our success and recognition to the dedication of our team,” said Ashley Freeman, Chief People Officer of Wil-Ro, Inc. “A happy, healthy, and driven workforce makes Wil-Ro a top competitor not only in the small business world but also in the manufacturing and automotive industries. At Wil-Ro, we live by eight core values, one of which is ‘Eagerly Give Praise’ — there aren’t enough words to thank the team for the hard work and commitment they exhibit each day; however, we continually work to improve our processes, our people, and ultimately our business to demonstrate each individual’s important contribution to our mission and goals. It is an honor to be part of a small team locally known as a manufacturing powerhouse—here’s to another great year!”
