How relentless focus on a CULTURE of SAFETY grew Encore Electric from startup to 900 team members.
“Our people know: If you don’t feel safe, then say so. Stop the work and ask the right questions… the idea is stop and think.”
Willis Wiedel, President, Encore Electric
Yes, you can learn about CULTURE from an electrical contractor.
I became aware that Encore Electric was recognized as the TOP company nationally for safety. That’s a big deal, and not a reason I’d want to interview its CEO.
I asked for an interview because I was (and remain) impressed at how a relentless focus on culture, in this case a culture of safety, achieved great organizational results. Regardless of your business or industry, you’ll find this interview interesting and instructive.
