Working at Western is Rewarding – and Awarding

Western Pest Services has a history of putting people first. The “people” they put first are their customers AND their employees. While all the people working at Western are considered superstars, it’s important to recognize those that have gone above and beyond what’s expected of them.

No matter what is happening at the company, Western knows it’s always time to focus on their employees as well as their customers. One of Western’s core values is their people – every decision the company makes is made with its people in mind. That’s why the decision was made to bring back this award. They not only brought it back but revamped and upgraded it. It’s important to Western that their employees have the chance to not only celebrate their successes but the successes of their coworkers as well. Everyone is looking forward to celebrating the employees who won the awards for the first half of the year and then having fun (another Western core value!) at an awards dinner where they will select the winners for the entire year.

The awards are earned by Technicians, Customer Service Representatives, and Supervisors who live the Western core values and provide first-class service both inside and outside their branches. Winners are chosen by an impartial group of people. Anyone can nominate, but these winners happened to be nominated by their Branch Managers. That shows us that their impact is being recognized at some of the highest levels. We are proud to announce the 2023 winners:

Ultimately, the winners were announced and celebrated at the awards dinner at the end of the year. Congratulations to all the nominees and the winners!
