Bring Your Kids to Work Day
The Wellness Committee organizes the Bring Your Kids to Work Day event at the corporate office. In 2022, 34+ employees and 52+ kids participated.
The Employee Ownership Committee has had a yearly coloring contest since 2018. Employees were encouraged to ask someone close to them to draw a picture of him or her, their favorite employee, doing what they believe the employee does at work. First place winners received a gift card to enjoy dinner and a movie with their family. Here were 2022’s entry winners.
John Wright Memorial Contest
In 2022, we held our 17th annual John Wright Memorial Contest. The contest honors the memory of both John L. and John R. Wright. It is designed to further the understanding of the importance of trees among the children and grandchildren of Wright Service Corp. employees. There are four divisions with first, second and third place prizes for each. In total, $2,575 was awarded and distributed amongst the winners in each division.
John Wright Memorial Scholarship Fund
The John Wright Memorial Scholarship Fund was established in 2008 to create a substantial scholarship fund to help college students interested in commercial arboriculture achieve high academic goals and support the arboriculture industry. The scholarship is administered by the TREE Fund, awarded $5,000 to a student annually.
We also participate in job fairs in the communities we serve throughout North America where our recruiting team was able to increase exposure of our family of companies to the next generation of leaders. In the future, the recruiting team plans to partner with high schools throughout North America to engage and educate students on career paths in environmental services.
