Skender Construction: How a focus on employees brings success

Skender Construction has it priorities just right. It’s probably why the Chicago-based general contractor is so successful. With main markets in health care, retail, and commercial construction, the company brings in about $350 million worth of work and has won numerous awards.

“Our employees are the number one reason we are where we are today,” says Jerry Ball, CFO of Skender. It’s obvious the company knows the connection between happy employees and a thriving business. In fact, Skender has been recognized as one of the best places to work for eight years in a row!

Skender also embraces technology, another way to give employees the flexibility and technical support they need to do their jobs. For example, Ball points to the importance of mobility these days. “Having the ability to be more mobile is really a necessity more than a luxury,” he says. “Sage allows Skender to be a more mobile company. It allows people to have more of a work-life balance.”

In short, Skender Construction uses technology to focus on what matters most: their employees, culture, and clients. To learn more about Skender Construction:
