Shockey Ranked Among Nation’s Top Performers

WINCHESTER, Va. – Howard Shockey & Sons, Inc. has again been named to the Associated Builders and Contractors (ABC) Top Performers list.

ABC’s Top Performers list recognizes outstanding achievements across the board — in quality, expertise, safety, innovation, work culture, and overall project excellence. According to ABC, contractors who win this distinction “go above and beyond” with job quality, exemplary workplaces, outstanding community relations, and everything in between.

Safety is a pillar of importance and a core value for those who make the list. According to ABC, these top-performing contractors are more than six times safer than the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics industry average.

“Congratulations to the Shockey team for raising the bar in developing people, winning work, and delivering that work safely, ethically and profitably,” said Michael Bellaman, president and CEO of ABC. “Not only is a strong corporate culture an essential component of a thriving and vibrant workplace, but it helps retain top talent, create safe and healthy job sites, and build better communities.”

Among the cultural aspects that ABC looks for are proven leaders who create and embody a family-style culture, strong recruitment and retention programs, and a commitment to employee health, safety and innovation.
