Employee Owner of the Year

In October 2018, Wright Service Corp. announced an award program called the Employee Owner of the Year Award. This program serves as recognition for an employee within the Wright Service Corp. family of companies who is an outstanding citizen, exhibits the characteristics of an employee owner and the values of our company, and makes contributions in the best interest of the company.

Wright Service Corp. accepts nominations for the Employee Owner of the Year Award each year from October 15 through September 15. Nominations are judged by a committee between September 16 and October 15, with the winner announced yearly in October.
