Investing in our Greatest Asset – Our Team

The greatest gift of leadership is a boss who wants you to be successful. - Jon Taffer 

Colvos Staff, Feb. 2019

From day one, it has been our priority to invest in our employees first, and our approach has been holistic – from training and continuing education opportunities, to holiday parties and open and transparent dialogue, we are committed to cultivating the best team.  

Continuing Education 

When it comes to helping our team grow professionally, we provide training opportunities through the AGC Education Foundation, as well as OSHA. Our employees have taken advantage of a variety of classes on everything from scheduling to leadership, and we also encourage employees to seek out classes that interest them. One of our project engineers recently asked to take a class on quality control, and he took what he learned from the class and made meaningful improvements to our QC manual.  This is one of many examples of how Colvos supports and listens to the needs of their teams. 

Career Advancement 

As a new company we knew we would have to work hard to recruit a solid team, and we have been able to promote several individuals over the last year. For example, Scott Fletcher and Brian Neal who have been promoted from project engineer to project manager. Both exemplify the kind of management we want within our company. These two are driven, and willing to step up and do what needs to be done to make a project successful.  

Our team knows Colvos is the place to grow a career, and that’s why many are looking to find a place with us. Devin and I are both able to support and mentor our employees because we are still involved with the day-to-day operations of the company. We are there for them when they need us, not when our schedule allows. 

Work Hard Play Hard  

As a young and growing company, we are working hard to build and maintain a culture that values our employees each and every day. The construction industry isn’t for the faint of heart, and we know when employees feel valued and appreciated their work improves. We enjoy coming together for traditional company gatherings like our holiday party, and summer picnic, and we love incorporating a bit of rivalry with our various charity toy and clothing drives. We also find time to celebrate and compete in March Madness and Fantasy Football and we put on a summer golf tournament at Allenmore. These events bring our office and field staff together outside the work place and are a great way for all of us enjoy each other’s company.  

We want to invest in you! 

Gone are the days when employees punch the time clock, do their work, and then leave. At Colvos, we want our employees to know they are valued and respected, and that we are committed to investing in our team. Devin and I truly enjoy seeing our team grow and succeed because we know this is the future of our company. As our team grows and learns so does Colvos, and our future is bright thanks to our dedicated team.
