This year, the WT Group marked a half century of growth and leadership in engineering, design, and consulting services. Aligned with our commitment to the health and safety of our team members during the pandemic, on March 24, 2021, we celebrated with an all-employee virtual happy hour. While the occasion was festive with messages from leadership, memories shared by tenured employees, and even a mixologist concocting virtual branded mocktails and cocktails, we missed the personal connections that come with in-person events. So, in September, when vaccinations and falling Covid cases allowed us to hold the in-person celebration our team deserved, we did it in style!
Employees and clients gathered at the WT Group firehouse building, located next to our Hoffman Estates headquarters, to celebrate 50 years of growth, client service and teamwork. While enjoying live music, catered food, drinks and even tasty morsels from a Toasty Cheese food truck onsite, attendees heard messages from WT Group leaders and viewed poster collages chronicling half a century of success. President & CEO Troy Triphahn acknowledged his predecessors Donald, Scott and Steve Triphahn, who helped build the WT Group into the engineering and design force it is today. A WT Foundation raffle helped raise funds for its annual scholarship awards. Regional celebrations were held at the WT Group’s offices in Las Vegas and Dallas.
While celebrating the growth and success of the past 50 years, messages employees and clients heard were loud and clear. Just watch where we go in our next 50! For a quick recap outlining the event, check out the video below - cheers!
