Garver named a Best Place to Work by Wichita Business Journal

For more than a century, Garver has been providing communities across the country with innovative infrastructure solutions, while also implementing the most advanced programs designed to benefit the employees who deliver them.

Garver’s commitment to supporting its valued employees was recognized again recently, this time from the Wichita Business Journal, which named Garver among its 2019 Best Places to Work following a survey of company employees. It follows similar awards presented to Garver in the last year by The Oklahoman, and Zweig Group.

“Our mission is to solve our clients’ most complex problems, because that’s what they expect, and that’s what they deserve,” said Chris Bohm, a senior transportation project manager based in Wichita. “But, just as important is providing a place for our employees to not only work, but to thrive in their workplace, because that’s what they deserve, too.”

Garver’s programs include a comprehensive Wellness Program that provides employees with an in-house Wellness Team available for health consultations, personal training and nutrition assessments, and on-site biometric screenings. Garver also provides opportunities for employees to advance in their technical fields through Garver Launch, an annual internship program, and Garver U, a collection of in-house professional development courses led by the company’s most experienced leaders.

Garver’s employees are also active in their communities through GarverGives, the company’s corporate-giving arm that matches employee contributions dollar-for-dollar and emphasizes contributions to STEM organizations. Since its 2015 founding, GarverGives and the firm’s employees have contributed more than $572,000 to more than 300 organizations, and employees have volunteered more than 1,500 hours.

In Wichita, Garver has delivered successful projects to the Wichita Dwight D. Eisenhower National Airport, McConnell Air Force Base, and several surrounding communities. Garver is currently serving as owner’s representative for the City of Wichita’s new 120 MGD Northwest Water Treatment Plant, the largest capital improvement project in the city’s history.
