Fox Cities Chamber program recognizes employers who demonstrate a significant commitment to promoting work/life integration for their employees
Miron Construction Co., Inc. has been certified as a gold-level Employee Friendly Workplace by the Fox Cities Chamber. This certification recognizes employers who demonstrate a significant commitment to promoting work/life integration by creating a positive work environment and experience for all employees.
Gold-certified employers go above and beyond, offering benefits and policies that promote work/life integration and strive to meet diverse needs of employees.
“A winning workplace culture doesn’t happen by chance; it involves intention and careful nurturing,” said Dave Walsh, executive vice president of human resources at Miron. “Everyone at Miron — from the interns to the owners — invests time and energy into making the culture what it is. Our employees are our biggest and best asset, and we’re thrilled to be certified as a gold-level Employee Friendly Workplace where people can begin, cultivate, grow, and finish out their careers in construction.”
The mission of the Fox Cities Employee Friendly Workplace Initiative is to encourage the adoption of more employee friendly workplace practices and policies in order to enhance work/life balance and successfully attract and retain the best employees to the region.
Some of Miron’s Employee Friendly Workplace initiatives include, but are not limited to, remote and flexible work options to accommodate work/life integration, including summer hours; total wellness of mind and body through access to an onsite wellness coordinator and a leadership and life coach; employee network groups that foster a sense of belonging and increased trust among employees; learning and development opportunities; appreciation and team building events; diversity, equity, and inclusion programs; and paid time off to volunteer.
To date the Chamber has certified 16 other Fox Cities companies as being employee friendly. Eric Broten, Director of Economic Development at the Chamber, explained how the certification works: “We rate employers in four major categories: Paid Leave and Flexible Work Schedules, Health and Wellness Support, Financial Support and Perks. Employers are then given a score and if qualified, rank as Bronze, Silver, Gold or Platinum. We are thrilled to add Miron to this prestigious list as our newest Employee Friendly Workplace certified employer!”
Certification is open to all employers with operations located in the Fox Cites (Calumet, Outagamie and northern Winnebago Counties). The comprehensive benefit criteria incorporated into the application is intended to be attainable as well as aspirational for employers of any size across all industry sectors.
