Paul Smart: March 2021 Wild Thing Award Winner

Paul Smart: March 2021 Wild Thing Award Winner

To have a Will to Win is to be a self starter with unwavering drive who competes to achieve success. It’s about that “it” factor; it’s being self motivated in a way that pushes your whole team to achieve success.

Paul Smart won our March 2021 Wild Thing award for having a Will to Win. He is a self-starter, always finding the next thing to do without being told. This drive and dedication is brought to the table every day.  

Paul adapted quickly to his new role as he continues to learn new skills. Patience while teaching new hires comes easy to Paul as he is a hard-working teammate. He executes each task efficiently and is not afraid to jump in and help out his teammates when needed. 

This excellent communicator accomplished many estimates with very few mistakes. He strives to be the best at his job and as a team player. 

He is an essential member to the Providence Construction team. Congratulations to Paul Smart, our March Wild Thing award winner! 

RiverWild Selected as a Best Place to Work

RiverWild Selected as a Best Place to Work

Raleigh, NC, July 14, 2021 – RiverWild was announced as one of the Triangle Business Journal’s 2021 Best Places to Work.

You could almost feel a tangible sense of pride and overwhelming joy in our offices the morning of the announcement. The kitchen was bursting with smiles and chatter as Founder and CEO, Reid Smith, congratulated our team on being men and women worth recognizing. It was a moment of triumphant celebration recognizing not only the award, but just how far our family of brands has come.

“Seven years ago when Jaclyn and I started the company, we did it with a heart of wanting to do it differently. Not really knowing where that would take us or lead us, but just wanting to do it differently for the people we love and the people we work with. Our mission to impact and develop people has been there from day one and is something we’ve been passionate about the whole time.”

This award recognizes companies that received high marks in areas such as team effectiveness, trust with co-workers, manager effectiveness and work engagements. The winners were chosen based on an employee-survey process conducted by Quantum Workplace. Once nominated, a company had to meet a threshold in employee participation – a percentage that varies based upon the size of the company – to be eligible to be honored.  Companies receive this award because their organization

“This is an award for you guys” said Reid at a company celebration. “Y’all are the best part about this place and the best parts of what we get to do every day. I’m proud of our team and want to congratulate you for creating a culture worth recognizing”

Intern to Full-Time: The Hobbs Brothers

Intern to Full-Time: The Hobbs Brothers

From interns to full time employees, Tucker and Carter Hobbs work hard each day out in the field. With a will-to-win and self-starter mindset, they stepped up to the plate and applied to work in the construction industry. 

Tucker Hobbs is a Field Engineer and Carter Hobbs is a Support Engineer, both for Providence Construction.  

“When I first started with Providence, they didn’t see me as a 19-year-old with little experience. Instead, I was given endless opportunities that challenged me and helped me to grow and learn” expressed Carter. Little self-doubt remained as his confidence grew stronger. 

With faith and determination, Carter and Tucker continued to enjoy the hard work that they faced each day. Because of the close relationships and hands-on experience, the brothers decided to stay on full-time with PC. 

While they are not always on the same job site, their relationship does not weaken. The bond between the brothers is constantly growing stronger and closer. They said it gives them “common ground” to connect with one another. 

Throughout their time here at PC, they give thanks to Nick Kerley and Mark Turner for impacting their construction career. Without their help, the brothers would not be as knowledgeable and determined.

Cody Hairr: March 2021 Wild Factor Award Winner

Cody Hairr: March 2021 Wild Factor Award Winner

To have a Will to Win is to be a self starter with unwavering drive who competes to achieve success. It’s about that “it” factor; it’s being self motivated in a way that pushes your whole team to achieve success.

Cody Hairr won our March 2021 Wild Factor award for having a Will to Win and unwavering drive. He does not have to be asked twice to start or complete a project and gets the job done well. Without Cody’s drive, our farm operations would lack the success it holds today. 

Cody is a humble team player and never boasts or complains about a task. He is a focused hard worker that strives to accomplish the task at hand. 

A Will to Win is seen when Cody rolls onto a new project, never stopping. A determined mindset drives Cody to get things done efficiently. His hard word never goes unnoticed, achieving so much success in a very short amount of time. With this being said, Cody is the first person to ever be promoted to coordinator in their first 90 days! 

Every accomplishment has helped earn him his stripes literally and figuratively. A huge congratulations to Cody Hairr on winning the March 2021 Wild Factor award and his promotion!
