Buildertrend celebrates 500th employee milestone, boasting 55% year-over-year workforce growth
Today, we’re celebrating something big … we officially have 500 full-time employees! This marks a significant milestone of maintaining 55% year-over-year growth of our workforce since 2018, and you bet we’re proud. And of course, we’re commemorating this achievement with a company-wide celebration.
As one of the largest privately held technology companies within the Silicon Prairie, we’ve celebrated 50% year-over-year growth for nearly the past decade. Our co-founders Dan, Jeff and Steve credit our continued success as a direct result of our most valuable resource – the people.
“Every day, we strive to create a work environment that measures up to our internal motto of ‘life is better at Buildertrend,’ where employees feel valued, rewarded and empowered to take on new opportunities, with a company commitment to promoting from within,” said Dan Houghton, our co-founder and executive vice president. “Buildertrend’s impressive growth and recognition as Omaha’s #1 best place to work is a direct result of the dedication and commitment of and to our growing team – all 500 of them.”
Life Really Is Better Here…
We anticipate achieving an employee retention rate of more than 85% for 2019, attained through a management philosophy that celebrates hard work, trust and collaboration, along with benefits and perks like flexible hours, incentive stock programs, opportunities to support local non-profits, 401(k) matching and social activities.
Our employees enjoy regular opportunities to build relationships with team members and senior leadership, as well as nearly unlimited opportunities for professional advancement. In fact, projections indicate that between 50 and 60% of the company’s current workforce will take on a new role or be promoted by the end of 2019.
Omaha’s #1 Best Place to Work
Our unique and rewarding culture has not only helped it to attract top talent but has also earned the company local and national accolades. Earlier this year, we were awarded by Baird Holm LLP as the #1 Best Place to Work in Omaha for companies with 200 or more employees, and were recognized as a finalist for the 2019 North America Employee Engagement Awards.
“During my tenure at Buildertrend, I’ve grown as a professional and as a person. The company provides constant opportunity for growth, and I’ve been able to experience a variety of positions while working in an environment that’s exciting, challenging and rewarding,” said Tayler Ross, who started working here in 2016 as a customer success manager and is now a senior manager in the customer success department. “Being a part of Buildertrend’s success and watching our team grow has been one of the most exciting parts of working here. The people make coming to work every day a joy, and I wouldn’t want to be anywhere else at this stage in my career. I can’t wait to see what we do next together.”
