KBE Building Corporation Named a Top Workplace in CT

Hartford Courant Top Workplaces Logo9/29/2020 – KBE Building Corporation, a $300-$400 million construction services firm located in Farmington and Norwalk, was named one of The Hartford Courant’s Top Workplaces in Connecticut for 2020. Only 48 companies were named a Top Workplace in 2020; KBE ranked 18th in the small employer group.

Companies are recognized solely on employee feedback gathered through a third-party survey. The anonymous survey, administered by Energage, LLC, uniquely measures 15 drivers of engaged cultures that are critical to the success of any organization, including alignment, execution, and connection.

“We’re proud each time that KBE is honored as one of the Courant’s Top Workplaces,” said Michael Kolakowski, KBE president and CEO. “Our employees are the backbone of what we do and how we’re able to provide superior services for our clients. Their daily commitment to our mission of building excellence together and fostering exceptional relationships with our clients, design partners, trade contractors, and each other is the reason for our success.”

The firm’s corporation philanthropic program, 50 Ways to Make a Difference, is frequently cited as a main source of satisfaction by KBE employees. Established in 2009 to celebrate the firm’s new ownership, name change, and 50 years in business, 50 Ways has helped KBE associates donate more than $3.4 million and 16,000 volunteer hours to charitable causes benefitting children, seniors, and military veterans in Connecticut and Maryland.

This year marks the fifth time KBE was named a Top Workplace. Previous years include 2013, 2016, 2018, and 2019.
