Attracting and retaining hardworking, talented professionals at I.B. Abel begins with being intentional in the ways that we invest in their career growth from day one on our team and the success that they achieve throughout their entire I.B. Abel careers. Our people are our greatest asset, from every new hire to our longstanding leadership team members. Together they empower our company to consistently deliver excellence, by being inclusive, diverse, and committed to each other, our industry partners, and the communities we serve throughout Central Pennsylvania and the Mid-Atlantic and New England regions.
We believe that employing crafted workers, building long-term relationships, and investing in employee training and development helps provide every team member with opportunities to learn, grow, and excel. Whether it’s welcoming you to the company or celebrating your retirement after many committed years of service, you are a part of the I.B. Abel family when you join our team. To serve our industry as a best-in-class electrical contractor, we must first value our people who make the work that we do possible.
“The excitement and positivity that we encourage makes a difference in each team member’s day-to-day actions. We drive exploration and creativity for everyone to do more personally and professionally. This optimism and encouragement is contagious, and it resonates with their families, friends, loved ones, our networks, and customers.” – Stephanie K., Chief Human Resources Officer
As a family-owned business, we stay true to our roots in supporting a positive company culture and team atmosphere because we know that a unified and engaged team can accomplish incredible work together.
I.B. Abel’s Employee Engagement Committee and Wellness Committee are made up of team members at all levels, representing both the office and the field. Each committee’s members work together to plan and execute events and activities designed to create team connection, promote good health and wellness, build great relationships, and to remind our employees that they are appreciated and valued. From family-fun days at the amusement park and baseball stadium, wellness webinars, onsite health screening assessments, and a bit of friendly competition at our Chili Cook-Off to contests and initiatives that also connect us virtually, we truly are a family that works hard and plays hard together. And, for the moments when a break is needed during the workday, a designated wellness room has been designed at the office specifically for team members to do just that.
CAREER TRAINING & ADVANCEMENT
At I.B. Abel, empowering our team members through continuous learning and advancement opportunities is the key to creating meaningful career development paths. From the initial onboarding training and Abel University (our Learning Management System) to the company’s Associate’s Program that allows employees the opportunity to follow detailed training and enter the Project Management, Estimating, or Project Associate Accounting fields, there is a vast range of ways to grow and excel. Team members in supervisory roles know the impact of great mentorship and take a proactive approach, internally and out in the field, to help others succeed. It’s through this same commitment that EnABELher (an employee resource group) was established to also connect and empower women in our industry to drive innovative solutions and advance personally and professionally in our organization and in their communities.
“By having extensive training, experience, and expertise, team members are equipped to perform work with confidence and to thrive in situations where they can exercise their leadership skills and share their ideas to help drive the company’s overall performance and client experiences. It’s important to us that every individual sees the results of his or her efforts and is recognized as a key part of the success we achieve as a company.” – Stephanie K.

Think safe. Act safe. Be safe. – these principles inspire our team members’ efforts on every project to ensure everyone goes home safely to their families each day. We are proud to share that, in 2022, I.B. Abel had a record-breaking OSHA recordable year in our company’s history. Creating a culture of accountability leads to everyone doing their part, and not just passively but as an active contributor in achieving our safety goal of zero injuries and zero incidents. When you’re here, you’re rewarded for openly reporting and sharing best-practices, good catches, and near misses. With this kind of recognition, a thorough safety program in place, and designated Safety Coordinators to oversee jobsites, a constructive safety-first culture exists and improves quality and confidence for our employees and clients alike.
