Pewaukee, WI – April 28, 2017 – TOTAL Mechanical, Inc. today announced that it has been awarded a 2017 Top Workplaces honor of Southeast Wisconsin for the sixth straight year by the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. The Top Workplaces lists are based solely on the results of an employee feedback survey administered by WorkplaceDynamics, LLC, a leading research firm that specializes in organizational health and workplace improvement. Several aspects of workplace culture were measured, including Alignment, Execution, and Connection, just to name a few. “The Top Workplaces award is not a popularity contest. And oftentimes, people assume it’s all about fancy perks and benefits”, said Doug Claffey, CEO of WorkplaceDynamics. But to be a Top Workplace, organizations must meet our strict standards for organizational health. And who better to ask about work life than the people who live the culture every day — the employees. Time and time again, our research has proven that what’s most important to them is a strong belief in where the organization is headed, how it’s going to get there, and the feeling that everyone is in it together. Claffey adds, “Without this sense of connection, an organization doesn’t have a shot at being named a Top Workplace”.

Dennis J. Braun, President and CEO of TOTAL Mechanical, Inc. responds to his company being voted into one of the Top Workplaces of 2017. “We are once again honored that our employees continue to believe in our Senior Management team here at TOTAL Mechanical”.
“Building Integrity” is not just the cornerstone of the corporate philosophy, but translates to how all of TOTAL Mechanical’s employees conduct themselves and regard their work. TOTAL Mechanical’s team of engineers, project managers and licensed tradespeople complete each job with professionalism, safety and efficiency.
“We are extremely proud of our employees,” Braun said. “We have always felt that we have the best employees in the industry. It is extremely gratifying to learn, through inclusion in the 2017 Top Workplaces list that our employees appreciate TOTAL as much as we appreciate them.”
