Internal recognition

Since 2005, Wood has selected an annual Small Business Advocate and a Small Business Subcontractor award recipient.

The Small Business Advocate of the Year Award recognizes a Wood employee or employees that ensures small businesses are given an equitable opportunity to compete on our subcontracts, has exceptional small business utilization on the contracts they manage, mentors small businesses, share their small business successes with other Wood employees and our customers, and is committed to growing our small business program.

Each winner is presented with a plaque and the Small Business Advocate is also given a cash reward.

This internal initiative was put in place to recognize internal employees that go above and beyond to utilize and assist small business firms. Each winner is presented with a certificate and is able to select something from the company store.
