Employee Dave Abbitt Wins “New Year, New You” Wellness Contest

The Custom Concrete team is pleased to announce Dave Abbitt as the overall winner of our “New Year, New You” wellness contest. As part of our corporate wellness strategy and in partnership with our employee benefits firm, American Health & Wellness Group (AHW), we launched a fun and innovative 12 week wellness program in January called “New Year, New You”.

All of Custom Concrete got involved with actively working on well-being and healthy living accountablity. The program allowed all of us to take small steps toward healthIER living one day at a time over a 12 week period. We worked on things like hydration, 30 minutes of daily activity, trying new fruits and vegetables, the right amount of sleep, handling stress better and a few personal goals as well. It was fun to see everyones’ progress and learn new ways to engage in our own health journey.

To make the program extra fun, AHW added a contest element, where employees could get points toward winning a grand prize at the end of the 12 weeks. All we had to do was challenge ourselves in new healthful ways, create new healthy habits, engage on social and share our journey with our co-workers.

Custom Concrete Named Greenways Foundation 2016 Outstanding Corporation

Greenways Foundation 2016 Outstanding Corporation

Custom Concrete is honored and humbled to be named Greenways Foundation’s 2016 Outstanding Corporation. There are many gorgeous greenways throughout Indiana, and we are lucky enough to have one right in our own backyard – the Monon Trail extension in Westfield.

Last year Custom Concrete made three additions to the trail in close proximity to the Westfield, Indiana headquarters. There’s now a quarter of a mile stretch that we call the Custom Concrete “Healthy Path”. Additionally, three fitness stations were installed with various exercise and stretching equipment so employees and the general public can utilize those fitness stations. One station is really unique. It’s designed to be handicap accessible. An individual in a wheelchair can pull right up to it and do various exercises all at different points.

It has been Custom Concrete’s pleasure to partner with the City of Westfield and the Westfield Parks Department to help the Monon Trail grow. We were thrilled to be able to build a paved trail connector from our campus to the Monon path. It has allowed our employees to continue to work on their health and wellness goals and has facilitated fun fitness stations the entire community can use as well.

“We want to promote a healthy lifestyle. We want for our company and community to take advantage of the great amenities we have here in Westfield,” says Brad Schrock, Custom Concrete vice president.

Custom Concrete Cares

Custom and the Community

When a company’s roots are entrenched deep within a community, an active and altruistic presence in that community generally follows.

That is indeed the case with Custom Concrete.

Since launching in 1969, we have grown from a meager foundation forms company to one of Indiana’s leading providers of concrete work in commercial, residential and multi-family projects. Recent projects have included providing the foundations for a 750,000 square-foot manufacturing plant, a number of upscale multifamily developments and even several “big-box” stores throughout Central Indiana.

Nonetheless, one thing remains constant: a business environment that is based on the sound principles of trust, integrity, pride and faith. And with that comes that commitment to helping the community in which we live and work as well as taking care of our employees.

Custom Concrete is “seen” in a number of different places: Soccer field back stops, the backs of little league teams and through other sponsorships and donations. But there are many other times when we may be volunteering our time and talents that “fly a bit under the radar.”

For many years, for instance, we’ve been a supporter of Anna’s Celebration of Life through participating in 5K and biking events and other supporting roles. We’re proud of our hometown, Westfield, Ind., and regularly participate in both Westfield Chamber activities as well as things like the Open Doors of Washington Township food drive during the holidays. Through the Builders Association of Greater Indianapolis, we’ve donated time and resources to build a Santa House as well as participate in Habitat for Humanity.

Likewise, Custom Concrete applies those tenets of trust, integrity, pride and faith with our employees as well. We continually do everything we can to ensure the health, safety and well-being of our employees – not because we have to in order to meet some standard, but because we believe it’s the right thing to do. Our extensive health and wellness program garnered us as Indiana’s “Healthiest Employer” (for companies between 100 – 500 employees). In tandem with our health and wellness initiative, we also provide employees with financial literacy information so they can maximize their hard-earned wages.

This isn’t to brag about our efforts; it is merely to illustrate our commitment to caring about our employees and our community. It’s the kind of people we are – and the kind of people we do business with.
