Clancy & Theys Construction Company Receives Multiple Awards for Workplace Culture

Clancy & Theys Construction Company Receives Best Place to Work and Best Employers Award by Triangle Business Journal and Business NC.

Clancy & Theys Construction Company is honored to announce a remarkable achievement. As a recipient of Best Place to Work by Triangle Business Journal and Best Employers by Business North Carolina for 2024, these accolades reflect what we know to be true—Clancy & Theys is a truly special place to build a career. “These awards reflect the heart and soul of our company—our people,” says Baker Glasgow, president of Clancy & Theys. “As we look back on the past 75 years, I couldn’t think of a better way to memorialize our collective success than by honoring our employees.”

Both awards are presented to companies that excel in fostering employee engagement and creating an exceptional workplace environment, and results are captured through an employee survey covering a variety of organizational topics including compensation, trust, and engagement.

“It’s an honor to receive these recognitions, but I’m not surprised,” says Fleming Herring, V.P., Raleigh division manager. “ I’m excited to see the intangible parts of our culture captured by our team. I feel honored to be a part of, and lead teams, that flourish under the trust and innovation that flows through every part of our organization.”

For the past 75 years, Clancy & Theys has been fostering an environment where employees are heard, valued, and appreciated. We know our collective success is due to the strength and trust of our team, so our top priority is to always to do right by our employees.

Our company was founded by two brothers-in-law, so we know firsthand the importance of family. That’s why we foster an environment that protects quality of life including the mental, emotional, and the physical well-being of our employees. And we demonstrate those values by offering competitive compensation and benefits that make a difference, including paid parental leave, health insurance, retirement planning, and a stand-alone mental health program for our employees and their families. We want to equip every team member with the resources they need to succeed—at this company, with their families, and in life.

The Triangle Business Journal’s Best Place to Work award winners are selected based on results from a confidential employee-survey process conducted by Quantum Workplace. Employers score their respective companies based on topics including compensation and benefits, trust in senior leadership, and employee engagement. This year’s winners span various industries, such as technology, construction, and life sciences.

The Business North Carolina Best Employers award identifies and recognizes the top employers in the state. This award is given to North Carolina companies who received top rankings on a survey that polled employees on essential workplace topics including organizational health, leadership, engagement, work-life balance, pay, training, benefits, and corporate social responsibility.

Founded in 1949, brothers-in-law E.I. Clancy and Johnny Theys founded Clancy & Theys Construction Company in Raleigh, N.C. Today, we have six divisions across the Southeast and one of the Top 200 Contractors and Top 100 Green Builders per Engineering News Record.  As we celebrate 75 years in 2024, we honor our founders’ legacy. Integrity, resilience, and craftsmanship remain at the core of our foundation. Clancy & Theys is much more than a construction company, and these awards demonstrate our commitment to excellence, both within our own teams, our communities and the clients we serve.
