Granite City Electric Branch Named Employer of the Year

The Bennington, Vt., branch of Granite City Electric Supply (based in Quincy, Mass.), was named the “2016 Employer of the Year” award by Bennington Creative Workforce Solutions (CWS).

Over the last three years, Bennington Branch Manager Geoff Crawford and Granite City have worked with CWS and the United Counseling Service to provide jobs to those in need at both the Bennington and Brattleboro, Vt., branches. Crawford was being recognized for going above and beyond to accommodate one employee in particular, making sure the employee’s schedule worked with his transportation and rehiring him years after he was force to leave due to illness.
