There are a lot of great contractors out there that do great work for their customers. There are also a lot of national and local awards that recognize those contractors. At The NEWS we created a different type of award, thus the Best Contractor to Work For contest was born.

This contest recognizes the contractor that has created a great place to work. This can manifest itself in many ways including investing in employees in the form of training, creating a fun environment by planning staff outings, or making sure employees have a voice in company policies.

If you are an employee who believes that your work environment encourages growth, opportunity, recognition, education, and a winning attitude for all employees, then show off your team by nominating your company as The NEWS’ 2013 “Best Contractor to Work For.”

Simply follow the link below, fill out the nomination form, and submit it to The NEWS by November 15, 2013.

Four U.S. contractors and one Canadian contractor will be chosen to represent the best of the best. The winners will be announced in The NEWS’ AHR Expo show issue on January 20, 2014.

At the very least, it will earn you some brownie points from the boss. Visit to nominate your company. Deadline is Nov. 10.
