The magazine also noted the quality of talent working on the project.

Do It Best CEO Dan Starr was quoted in the story:

“I meet with each of our newest team members one-on-one, and consistently, Electric Works comes up as a reason they considered us as an employer. The response from our current team and candidates has been overwhelmingly positive. Electric Works has given us visibility to candidate pools we would not otherwise be reaching today. The attention and interest it has gained is really exciting.”
