CK Commercial achieves Diamond Level STEP Safety recognition from the Associated Builders and Contractors (ABC)

CK Commercial is proud to announce that we have been named a Diamond Level STEP (Safety Training Evaluation Process) recipient by the Associated Builders and Contractors (ABC). This is CK Commercial’s third year being recognized for its commitment to safety and our first year achieving the Diamond Level, the highest level attainable by STEP participants.

“To be named a STEP Diamond level recipient is something we are extremely proud of,” said CK Commercial Founder and Lead Strategist Michael Crim, “Our commitment to safety and our team go hand in hand and are of utmost importance in executing our vision as a company.

Founded in 1989 as a safety benchmarking and improvement tool, STEP has evolved into a world-class safety management system that dramatically improves safety performance among participants regardless of company size or type of work. Participating ABC member firms measure their safety processes and policies on 25 key components through a detailed questionnaire with the goal of implementing or enhancing safety programs that reduce jobsite incidents. Companies that participate in the STEP Safety Management system are said to be 655% safer than the industry average.

CK Commercial makes the Inc. 5000 for the Second year in a row!

Inc. magazine today revealed that CK Commercial ranked on its annual Inc. 5000 list for the Second year in a row.  The Inc. 5000 list is the most prestigious ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. This list represents some of the most successful independent small businesses in America.

“To land a spot on this coveted list for the second consecutive year is reflective of the resilience and grit of our team. With 2020 being one of the most challenging years for everyone, to achieve the growth we did while maintaining our focus on redefining the construction experience for our team members and clients is something we are proud of,” said CK Commercial Founder and Lead Strategist Michael Crim

Not only have the companies on the 2021 Inc. 5000 been very competitive within their markets, but this year’s list also proved especially resilient and flexible given 2020’s unprecedented challenges. Among the 5,000, the average median three-year growth rate soared to 543 percent, and median revenue reached $11.1 million. Together, those companies added more than 610,000 jobs over the past three years.

We are incredibly grateful and proud to make the Inc. 5000 list for the second year in a row!

CK Commercial has been named to Inc. magazine’s annual list of the Best Workplaces for 2021 for the third consecutive year. Hitting newsstands May 18 in the May/June 2021 issue, and as part of a prominent feature, the list is the result of a wide-ranging and comprehensive measurement of American companies that have created exceptional workplaces and company culture whether teams are operating in person or remotely. 

Collecting data from thousands of submissions, Inc. singled out 429 honorees this year. Each nominated company took part in an employee survey, conducted by Quantum Workplace, on topics including management effectiveness, perks, and fostering employee growth. The organization’s benefits were also audited to determine the company’s overall score and ranking. 

“In such a trying time for businesses around the world, this award means a lot to us as a company and to me personally. We set out to prioritize our people above everything else, and to know that it is working and genuinely felt by each and every team member is an unbelievable accomplishment and honor,” said CK Commercial Founder and Lead Strategist Michael Crim.

“The definition of a positive workplace has changed drastically over the past year,” says Inc. magazine editor-in-chief Scott Omelianuk. “Stocked fridges and nap pods were no longer perks many companies could rely on once work went remote. So, this year’s list is even more important as it reveals organizations that continue to enrich the lives of its employees amid a pandemic.”
