Selling Power Magazine has named Power Home Remodeling the 12th best company to sell for in the United States, above a variety of well-known brands including Google, Microsoft and FedEx. This marks the fourth consecutive year Power, one of the nation's largest exterior home remodelers, has been recognized on Selling Power's "50 Best Companies to Sell For" list.
No one wants to be stuck inside in front of a computer all summer long, so some companies are finding creative ways to get outside.
“Extremely supportive environment that challenges the employee to grow. The environment is always positive and I can take as much time off as needed. They hold different functions outside of work to reinvigorate the employees. Also continue to incentivize the staff to work harder for large promotions,” says one millennial worker.
Power Home Remodeling, the nation’s second largest exterior home remodeler, has once again been named one of the top 10 companies in the country on Fortune’s 100 Best Workplaces for Millennials in 2016. Based on surveys of more than 88,000 millennials at more than 600 companies, Power earned the No. 6 spot on the second annual list for its stimulating culture, supportive and positive environment and personal growth opportunities for its employees.
“At Power we firmly believe that the ability to attract and retain mission-driven millennials directly impacts our success. Quite simply, our people are our secret weapon,” said Asher Raphael, Power’s Co-Chief Executive Officer. “With millennials comprising more than 86 percent of Power’s current employee base, I know firsthand what motivates and drives them — they aren’t just financially ambitious but are also looking to join an organization where they can make an impact on the world. We remain committed to delivering a culture that gives them something to believe in and where they can have a sense of purpose in everything they do and be the best version of themselves.”
Power continues to be nationally recognized as a top workplace in the country, demonstrated by several recent rankings, including Fortune’s 100 Best Companies to Work For in the U.S., Fortune’s No. 1 Best Workplace for Camaraderie, and earlier this month, Power’s Co-CEOs held the No. 25 spot on Glassdoor’s Highest Rated CEO list for the second consecutive year.
Power employees are provided with ongoing opportunities for growth in the form of leadership conferences across the country, frequent opportunities to meet and socialize with senior leadership and a personal mentor to help guide them to achieve more. Power’s inclusive social program filled with can’t-miss events and an annual company-paid trip to Mexico also gives employees a chance to develop a lasting camaraderie with their colleagues to bring their experience full circle. Already in 2016, employees heard from Wayne Gretzky at a recent leadership conference and attended the NCAA Final Four. Additionally, as a further testament to Power’s commitment to millennials, the company recently launched the Power Veterans Initiative — a one-of-its-kind program that provides hundreds of job opportunities specifically for millennial military veterans returning home with a focus to change the national veteran narrative from one of distress to one of pride by spotlighting veterans’ leadership skills and commitment to a shared mission.
“There are more similarities than differences when it comes to what different generations want in a great workplace,” says Michael C. Bush, CEO of Great Place to Work®. “Our research shows that company pride, a sense of community and competent, ethical leadership can bring Millennials, Gen Xers and Baby Boomers together for a great, high-performing workplace.”

We could not ask for a better title of this year’s event — the Power Triumph Games.”
