We’re excited to announce that Weather Shield Roofing Systems has been named one of Energage’s Top Workplaces! But what makes us a top tier workplace? Vacation time, health insurance, and compensation packages all play a part — but what truly makes an impact is when a company puts the well-being of their employees first.

As one of the nation’s most credible employer recognition programs, Weather Shield employees participated in the Energage Workplace Survey which gathered employee feedback about the company’s culture.

From there, the survey data was then evaluated against Top Workplaces’ benchmarks derived from over 23 million surveys at over 70,000 organizations. According to Top Workplaces, less than 3% of eligible organizations earn a Top Workplaces designation.

When it comes to company culture, many business leaders make the mistake of fixating on singular aspects of an employee’s life or particular benefits and incentives, rather than considering and caring for the individual as a whole.

However, at Weather Shield, our core purpose is to help people become the best version of themselves. And our values of “achievers,” “team players,” “get better everyday,” “care personally,” “make our customers love us,” and “owning it” both defines and guides the culture of our business. 

Our employees sum it up as this:

“One of the best things about working at Weather Shield is the friendly atmosphere. The other thing I love about this place is the fact that if you have a problem or an issue, then Weather Shield (from top to bottom) is willing to help if possible. It leaves you with a good feeling at the end of the day.”

“Weather Shield is more than a job, it’s a family. It starts with the owners, and Jim takes every opportunity he has to bless his employees in ways to make their lives better and so they can be successful. He cares about everyone on a personal level and makes it a place you want to get up and go to work every day because you are appreciated and valued for your contributions.”

“The best thing about working at WeatherShield is that we are all equal. We are willing to help each other for our customer’s sake while bettering each other in the jobs that we do every day. I appreciate the family, faith-based atmosphere that I’m involved with every day. My personal motto is to be better than yesterday and working for Weather Shield has fulfilled this motto for me not only at work but at home as well.”

Overall, the magic formula for being a top tier workplace is to build great people into a great team that builds great commercial roofing solutions for great clients. 

“It’s crucial that you do this in that order and put your priority on the first part of the formula,” explained Weather Shield Founder and CEO, Jim Bush. “Because building commercial roofing systems is the work we do, but building great people is our passion and, by far, the most important work we do.”
