Utilitra has been named a finalist on the St. Louis Business Journal’s 2020 Best Places to Work list.
Over 250 nominations were submitted for the Best Places to Work Awards, and 85 companies made the cut as finalists. To enter, participating companies and their employees completed surveys which measured communication, management structure, benefits, teamwork, and several other factors. The companies were then grouped by size.
Utilitra, classified in the large employer category, has previously been recognized by the publication, ranking #8 on their Fastest Growing Private Companies list and #13 on their list of Largest Women-Owned Businesses in 2019.
CEO and Chairwoman Candice Fowler says the recognition highlights the company's focus on community and employee engagement. “We’ve always strived to make our employees feel valued and like they are part of a cohesive team,” said Fowler. "For a large company, maintaining our sense of family and a comfortable working environment is important to us, especially as we’ve continued to grow.”
