Holliston, MA – Wayne J. Griffin Electric, Inc. (Griffin Electric) recently commemorated its 45th anniversary by hosting a company-wide raffle for its employees. The grand prize was a 2023 Jeep Wrangler Sahara 4×4, and a long-time employee was the winner of the jeep.
Employees received one chance per year of service, which resulted in an average of ten tickets per person. The new jeep was part of a series of prizes that were raffled off by the company in honor of its anniversary milestone, with winners being drawn at a summer outing event in New England. Griffin Electric held these summer outings for its employees and their families in each of its regional locations; the outing for its New England region was in July, while outings for its four Southeast regional locations in Alabama, Georgia, and North Carolina took place in June. Prizes were drawn on both a regional as well as a company-wide basis, and in addition to the jeep included travel packages, cash prizes, and paid vacation time.
Representatives of Griffin say the company is proud to have evolved from its modest beginnings into one of the top electrical firms in the country, a credit to the substantial investment it has made to build a strong team and culture over the past four-plus decades, and that Griffin’s “Work with the Best. Be the Best.” mentality has guided the company to hire, train, and maintain the best possible workforce and helped shape the company into what it is today. The company’s representatives add that reaching this important milestone is a reflection of the quality of people it has surrounded itself with, from its own dedicated workforce to the solid business relationships it has built and sustained over the years.
This year also marks the 30th anniversary of Griffin Electric’s in-house Apprenticeship Training Program, a federally recognized, state approved, and fully accredited four-year program consisting of classroom instruction and on-the-job learning designed to help prepare men and women in pursuit of their electrical and telecommunications licensure.
