Life at Wightman
Doing what we say we will do. Creating great places. Giving back to our communities. And, having fun along the way. It’s what life at Wightman is all about.
Wightman is an employee-owned company governed by a board of directors and guided day-to-day by a leadership team with representation from each area of the company. We thrive on collaboration. There are ample opportunities for you to have input and stay informed on operational topics important to the success of our business. We do this through our committee structure designed to make sure all voices are heard and quarterly companywide meetings where we mix food, fun, and information to keep everyone in the know.
As part of the Wightman team, you will find endless opportunities ranging from multi-state clients, project variety, company pride, and the opportunity to grow in your career. We are committed to providing you with professional development that takes your skills and knowledge to the next level.
You’ll find our work culture to be flexible with relaxed business attire that allows you to dress for the day you will have – whether that is making a presentation to a client or a day out in the field. As the situation dictates, you have the option of flex time, remote working, and working from any of our three locations. Our offices are dog and kid friendly, so we always have snacks on hand.
At the heart of all we do at Wightman is family – our family of co-workers, clients, and, of course, our loved ones at home. One of our core values is to create a fun and happy environment for staff and clients.
We believe that a healthy balance between work and life makes us all better at our jobs. We also believe that enjoying coming to work each day creates a team atmosphere that brings out the best in each of us. Just some of the fun we have includes:
- On-site community gardens
- Adopt-a-Road clean up team
- Company-wide family picnic
- Company-wide holiday party
- Raising money for local charities through cardboard boat races, bed races, and other activities
- Impromptu Nerf Blaster skirmishes in the hallways
- Chili cook-offs
- Participating in the Allegan County Fair Parade
- Family game nights
- Attending sporting events and other local events
- And so much more!
