Company Culture: The Cornerstone of a Successful Business
In the simplest terms, the word culture can be identified as the way of life for a group of people. Culture gives a group of people meaning, depth and direction. When applied to the corporate world, culture is the blend of standards, methods and procedures that guide an organization.
At South Bay Construction, our pursuit of an excellent company culture has driven us to become the organization that we are today. And it continues to guide us towards future growth and innovation.
Every company, from the sole proprietorship to a multi-national corporation possesses a corporate culture.
Creating a Successful Company Culture
Our company culture is a reflection of our unique history combined with our vision for the future. At South Bay Construction, we are driven by the single core value of trust. We are honest with our clients and with our employees.
With our core value of trust, we don’t give our clients the runaround; we leverage our experience, skills and honesty to deliver a straight-forward path to success on every project.
By incorporating a core value of trust, we are able to have a clear understanding of who we are and who we want to become. Our purpose gives us clarity in our mission and our values, providing meaningful work for both our employees and our clients. Without it, we would not be able to offer the engaging leadership or the high-standards of service that we provide to the Bay Area.
Crafting a Company Culture for the Construction Industry
The construction industry makes all other industries possible. We create modern retail centers, innovative tech spaces and stunning city skylines. We shape the environment and provide spaces for people to live, work and play in harmony with each other.
• Hiring the best people possible. Currently our industry is experiencing a shortage of skilled
workers, supervisors and managers without a large influx of new talent from the millennial generation. We at South Bay Construction have been able to maintain a strategy of recruiting that retains valued employees who stand out amongst the crowd.
• Supporting their talent with training. As technology evolves, so does the construction industry. How we do business in the field today is vastly different from the work we did just a decade ago. Providing educational opportunities to keep employees on the cutting edge of industry-wide change has been a principle for growth that we have maintained throughout the years.
• Examining forward thinking trends. Continuously examining construction industry trends in the recent past help us shape our future and prepare for future innovations.
By hiring, supporting and educating our staff, we not only acquire top-level talent, but we also retain them. By incorporating project manager retreats, bi-weekly project team meetings and recreational outings for our staff we are able to nurture an environment of meaningful work and appreciation.
With more than 37 years of experience, South Bay Construction is one of the premier silicon valley construction companies. We are proud of the Culture and Values which have made our company successful.
