“We are once again delighted to receive this award,” said Bruce Whitaker, President of The Whitaker Companies. “How our employees feel about where we’re going and how we’re getting there as a corporation is the key to our success. We couldn’t make it without the partnership and buy-in we get from all of them.”

The owner of the company cares deeply both personally and professionally about the people that work here and about their success.” – Employee quote from Engagement Survey
