Mayer Electric Supply branches in Charlottesville, Chesapeake, Newport News, Petersburg, and Richmond were recently named as 2014 Best Places to Work in Virginia. The annual list of the Best Places to Work in Virginia was created by Virginia Business and Best Companies Group.
“What a sensational award this is for our associates in Virginia,” shared Mike Lamb, Mayer’s Vice President for the Middle-Atlantic Region. “I could not be more pleased and proud that our associates in Virginia have earned this distinction in their markets. All of our associates have worked hard to build strong, consistent communications, trust, and associate engagement, and this is confirmation that they have been successful.”
It is a great honor for Mayer to be recognized as a best place to work and it is important for the company to continue to attract the best and brightest associates by focusing on the strengths and weakness pointed out in the results of the survey.
