Building a Strong Foundation: Hiring on Core Values
In construction finding the right team members with the right skills is essential. The work we do is challenging, and our customers are relying on us to do our best work. It should be no surprise then that our approach to hiring is deeply rooted in our Core Values. We believe that by adhering to these principles, we create a work environment that not only thrives in the industry but also stays true to our purpose to honor God, serve others, pursue excellence, and grow profitably, in that order.
This isn’t just a statement. It’s the foundation on which we build our team. We recruit and hire individuals who align with these values – safety, integrity, excellence, communication, and determination.
Safety isn’t just something we talk about and check a box. Safety is our culture. The construction industry can be inherently risky, and that’s why our commitment to the safety of every team member is non-negotiable. Awareness, training, and planning are at the heart of Gregory’s Care for the safety of every team member.
Integrity matters because our word is our promise. We abide by the Biblical principle that our “yes is yes” and our “no is no.” This unwavering commitment to integrity extends to every commitment or agreement we make – to customers and our employee team. When we say we’ll do something, you can trust that we will follow through. We expect this of our workforce too.
We constantly pursue excellence because we are committed to setting the standard in civil construction, and we need laborers, concrete finishers, construction foremen, heavy equipment operators, and superintendents who are committed to that same pursuit. We invest in our team members’ development, embrace innovation and new technologies, and thrive on finding creative solutions to complex challenges.
Communication is a cornerstone of our success. We take the time to listen, fostering open, honest, and proactive communication with clients, partners, and employees. This ensures that everyone is on the same page, contributing to a collaborative and efficient work environment. We seek first to understand, then to be understood.
And lastly, determination. In an industry full of excuses and extenuating circumstances, we don’t waver. Our determination is the driving force behind our commitment to help clients achieve their goals. We tackle obstacles head-on, always seeking solutions rather than making excuses.
As a Christian company, we are united in our mission to improve the quality of life of our employees and the communities we serve. Gregory Construction doesn’t just construct things; we build the future while upholding our values and principles.
You’ll notice we didn’t talk a lot here about construction skills. Yes, we are in the construction business and we seek people with experience and skills on construction sites. Yet, the ideal employee at Gregory Construction goes beyond technical expertise. We seek individuals who embody our core values, understand the importance of safety, operate with integrity, pursue excellence, communicate effectively, and exhibit unwavering determination. If that describes you and you’re looking for a team that’s not just building structures but also constructing a purpose-driven future, Gregory Construction may be the place for you.
