South Sound BIZ magazine is announcing the 2017 South Sound Top Places to Work this week with a series of Facebook Live events, accompanied by CEO Lon Wilson of Albers & Company and ConnectHR, supporting sponsors of this recognition program.

A third-generation, family-owned company, Absher Construction in Puyallup has not forgotten its roots. “Building Community” is still the most significant product and, as one employee wrote in a workforce survey, “I have always been proud of being an Absher employee. I enjoy knowing that our company conducts itself well above board.”

With an employee loyalty and connection so strong and widespread, it’s easy to see how the Top Places judging process would arrive at Absher as the large employer honoree.

Support for workers’ community service commitments is widespread, including matching charitable support. An in-house Leadership Development training program enhances growth potential of employees over its two years of directed learning.

“These are great people!  We actually live our company values,” reads another enthusiastic employee survey. “It is an open, family-oriented company.” “The company’s Core Values are in line with mine.”

Absher Construction strives to be “a community partner that builds facilities that are a component of the community. ‘Building’ is about the people and not the building itself,” summarized another survey response.
