CHARLOTTE, N.C. – Morris-Jenkins Air Conditioning, Heating, and Plumbing, a Wrench Group company, was recently recognized as a Top Workplaces award winner in the Charlotte metropolitan area, sponsored by the Charlotte Observer.

In 2021, Morris-Jenkins won a Top Workplaces USA award. Prior to that, the company was also recognized as one of Charlotte’s top workplaces in 2020, 2019, 2018, and 2016.
“We are so honored and humbled to be nominated yet again as a Top Workplace here in Charlotte,” said Morris-Jenkins President Jonathan Bancroft. “This is the top honor that all our team members can receive. We believe in educating, enabling, engaging, and empowering everybody on our team to do what they do best. It’s part of what makes Morris-Jenkins such a great place to come to work every day.”

As the leader of a Top Workplace, Jonathan Bancroft also individually won the award as Top Large Company Leader in 2022.
Top Workplaces award winners are determined based on employee feedback. After the program receives employee surveys, scores are calculated in different categories to determine which organizations deserve the title of Top Workplace for the year. Because of the answers from Morris-Jenkins employees, the company additionally won “culture badges” for Employee Appreciation and Professional Development.
