Buildertrend wins top position on Best Places to Work in Omaha list for second consecutive year

OMAHA, Neb. (February 21, 2020) – Buildertrend was named the #1 Best Places to Work in Omaha by Baird Holm LLP and program sponsor the Greater Omaha Chamber.

This is the second consecutive year the tech company has been awarded the top honor among Metro area businesses with more than 200 employees.

“At the heart of Buildertrend’s success is our people,” said Dan Houghton, co-founder of Buildertrend.

“Each day, their attitudes, effort and grit set this place apart from the rest. It’s thanks to them that we’ve secured the top ranking two years in a row.”

Created in 2003 by Baird Holm LLP, the Best Places to Work in Omaha initiative celebrates local employers who foster an engaged work environment and culture dedicated to organizational success, as voted on by the people who know them best – their employees. An online survey, administered by Quantum Workplace, measures levels of engagement, advancement opportunities and job satisfaction.

Over the past year, Buildertrend grew to more than 500 employees and remains the No. 1 construction project management software trusted by users across more than 100 countries. Even with these successes, the company continues to find new ways to improve an already awarded culture.

“We’re inspired by our team to never settle, to always push forward,” Houghton said. “We believe even the best can get better. That’s why we listen to employee feedback and make meaningful changes.”

The company’s motto, “a better way,” is embodied in the benefits improvements made in 2019. To ensure a higher quality of life for every employee, Buildertrend added paid maternity leave, work-from-home options and a bonus reimbursement perk that can be redeemed for life expenses such as childcare, tuition or a down payment on a home.

In 2019, 50 percent of Buildertrend’s workforce received promotions or a new role. Buildertrend also provides numerous company-sponsored engagement events and onsite perks such as a full gym, yoga studio, cafe with monthly credits, putting greens and a bar.

This all serves to form the foundation of a culture that’s focused on collaboration, a mission-driven purpose and healthy work-life balance.

“When we tell our team that life outside these four walls is more important, we mean it,” Houghton said.
