Buildertrend makes Inc.’s Best Workplaces for 2020 list

OMAHA, Neb. (May 5, 2020) – Buildertrend has been named to Inc. magazine’s annual list of Best Workplaces for 2020, a competitive national ranking that places the Omaha software company among the top employers in the United States.

This is Inc.’s fifth annual Best Workplaces list, comprising 395 companies from more than 3,000 submissions. Those that were selected have created exceptional workplaces through vibrant cultures, deep employee engagement and stellar benefits.

This honor follows Buildertrend’s 2020 recognition as the top workplace in the Best Places to Work contest in Omaha for the second consecutive year by Baird Holm LLP and program sponsor the Greater Omaha Chamber.

“Recognition on a local and now national level speaks to Buildertrend’s commitment to employee engagement and how we always put our people first,” said Dan Houghton, co-founder and co-CEO of Buildertrend.

“We believe our team’s relentless drive and positive attitude are the cornerstones to our success. Being a member of the Buildertrend team means coming to work every day with higher expectations than the day before. Even as everyone works from home during the COVID-19 crisis, we’ve seen just as much – if not more – engagement and productivity.”

Each nominated business took part in an anonymous employee survey, conducted by Quantum Workplace, on topics that included trust, management effectiveness, workplace perks and confidence in the future. To take part in the employee survey, Best Workplaces contenders are required to be independent companies based in the U.S. with more than 10 employees.

Since 2006, Buildertrend has empowered the construction industry with a better way to build – and its team members with a better way to work. Buildertrend, now a nationally recognized top employer in Omaha, enjoys the status as the leading construction project management software in the world.

Buildertrend made several improvements to workplace benefits in 2019, a demonstration of the company’s mantra, which is to always strive to be better. To ensure a higher quality of life for every employee, Buildertrend added several new perks, including paid maternity leave, work-from-home options and a bonus reimbursement option that can be redeemed for life expenses such as childcare, tuition or a down payment on a home.

“Buildertrend is powered by our culture of collaboration,” Houghton said. “This type of meaningful engagement helps make changes at every level of our organization. Employee feedback guides us when choosing new benefits.”

That collaborative culture has prevailed even as the entire company has made adjustments to work from home during the COVID-19 pandemic. Employees stay connected through video meetings, virtual happy hours, social media contests and interactive resources that foster opportunities to share experiences such as working alongside pets, keeping kids entertained and wellness ideas.

Buildertrend’s people-first culture has empowered its team to maintain a strong sense of workplace identity throughout the pandemic. That’s why, during this time, leadership has shared online resources for health and wellness, encouraging employees to take advantage of free company-sponsored counseling services and asking that everyone retain a healthy work-life balance and to reach out to colleagues if they need to talk.

“We have always tried to make Buildertrend a place where great people want to work – even if that work is done virtually for now,” Houghton said. “This award reinforces we’re doing what we need to continue making Buildertrend one of the best workplaces, not only in Omaha but in the nation.”
