Alpha Enterprise Group offers its employees flexible hours from the start of employment, and employees are encouraged to choose a customized benefits package from a menu of options. At weekly group meetings, employees get the opportunity to speak up about processes within the business that may need to be modified. “The past 31 years in business more than prove that Alpha’s culture works well within the communities where it does business,” says Chet Riddick. The company also encourages employees to be active in those communities. One of Alpha’s major contributions goes to the Philadelphia Club Frontiers International (PCFI). Alpha employees work alongside PCFI members at an annual health and educational event that provides free dental screenings and books to more than 300 children.
“The culture of the business started with recruiting, hiring and training people who lived in the community where the business was founded.”
