A winning year: Celebrating our achievements
Wow, 2019 has been a banner year for Buildertrend.
As we look back, we’re proud of the level of service we’ve been able to provide and the incredible growth of our company. We’re fortunate to be considered for and honored with several awards this year, which recognize our accomplishments and the hard work we put in to make life better for our customers and employees.
We’re always looking to the future – but first, let’s review the year (so far):
#1 Best Places to Work in Omaha 2019
Our people make us successful – and around here our people have a saying: Life is better here. We were excited to be named one of Omaha’s #1 Best Places to Work in 2019.
This initiative, founded by Baird Holm LLP and sponsored by the Greater Omaha Chamber, recognizes and celebrates local employers who foster more than just employee perks…it’s about an engaged work environment and a culture that’s dedicated to company success.
So, what does it take to win? Levels of employee engagement are measured through an online survey administered by Quantum Workplace. The firm then analyzes the results and provides feedback to the participating employers. We’ve always been proud of the culture we’ve built here, but to be recognized with this award affirmed what we’ve always wanted: to be the best place to work!
