PEC wins community awards
The summer of 2017 was full of awards for Professional Engineering Consultant’s Wichita office.
Promising Practices Award for Place by the Health and Wellness Coalition of Wichita
The award is given to recognizes employers who are building a healthier, more productive worksite by incorporating a comprehensive worksite wellness program.
PEC has a fun and fitness facility, Suite 300, across the street from our downtown location that boasts a complete weight room, half-court basketball, weekly yoga classes, and a game room.
Employees at all seven of our office locations participate in six wellness challenges and six wellness presentations. These cover all aspects of health: physical, emotional, medical, financial, nutrition and social. View the video below for info on the current wellness challenge.
PEC offers quarterly incentives to employees who complete wellness activities like annual physicals, participating in an organized race, volunteering, and so much more. The grand prize is an extra vacation day!
Young Professionals of Wichita Choice Award for a large company
Each year it’s presented to an organization that excels in their efforts to attract, retain and develop young professionals in the Wichita community.
Since 1965 PEC has made it our business to attract, retain and develop the brightest young engineers. We believe each of them has the potential to bolster our leadership and help make decisions that will lead our firm into the future.
PEC pays for continuing education and supports our staff in their pursuit of licensure, which is the lifeblood of success for an engineer. Licensure creates the path for salary increases, stock ownership, and leadership roles. This is an important step for retaining the talent we have supported in their career progression.
We want our employees to have a passion for where they work, live, and play. Everyday our 290+ great people apply themselves to engineering challenges across the nation and around the world, designing an increasing array of projects from highways to hospitals – stadiums to sidewalks – water towers to wind turbines – and everything in between. Our growth has created excellent, stable career opportunities.
