Helmkamp Construction has been awarded a Top Workplaces 2023 honor by The St. Louis Post-Dispatch Top Workplaces. The list is based solely on employee feedback gathered through a third-party survey administered by employee engagement technology partner Energage, LLC. The confidential survey uniquely measures 15 culture drivers that are critical to the success of any organization including alignment, execution, and connection, just to name a few.

“Earning a Top Workplaces award is a badge of honor for companies, especially because it comes authentically from their employees,” said Eric Rubino, Energage CEO. “That's something to be proud of. In today's market, leaders must ensure they’re allowing employees to have a voice and be heard. That's paramount. Top Workplaces do this, and it pays dividends.”

Helmkamp’s President and Owner, Rob Johnes said “Helmkamp is a great place to achieve your long-term career goals because most of our customer relationships are long-term, some of them going back 40+ years. If you have long-term personal goals, you can build those at Helmkamp better than almost anywhere else. We have employees that tell us they only wish they had started their career here sooner. That is the ultimate compliment as an employer, to have employees value how they’re treated and the quality of the work you do together then advocate for the company, our clients, and each other.”

Through the Top Workplaces program, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch recognizes the importance of effective leadership, strong values, and motivated workers. Thousands of businesses are invited to have their employees take the Top Workplaces survey through Energage. Businesses with at least 50 employees are eligible to participate. However, only a small subset of those businesses earn recognition in the annual list. 2023 is Helmkamp’s 4th time making the Top Workplaces list since Johnes acquired the business in 2018.
