DPR Construction exists to build great things. That is the physical structures we build as well as the people who work for us. With 3,000 people in the office and another 3,000 out in the field swinging hammers the company is able to expand its scope of work to impact the healthcare industry, higher education, commercial office, advanced technology, and life sciences. The impact that the company has throughout the country has been noticed, as DPR is now recognized as the 10th largest contractor by revenue.
The company's core values are the pillars of the foundation of DPR. "We really impress these values throughout all of our offices within DPR, as well as our current employees and employees we seek to hire," said Jorinne Jackson, who oversees the HR function for DPR. "I can't stress enough the importance we place on our core values."
DPR's long-time mission is to be the most admired company by 2030. This mission not only focuses on the company's growth but also on what they could be doing differently in their processes. From incorporating new technology into the business to updating its best people practices, this mission relies heavily on its core values. "A big part of our journey is making sure our people are on this journey with us to achieve this goal," Jackson said.
One of the top things they look for in employees is people who have a strong entrepreneurial spirit. But in order to have a solid team, DPR knows the importance of trusting those people. "You can have a bunch of people who are entrepreneurial-minded, but if the company doesn't trust those individuals to pursue those entrepreneurial opportunities it doesn't go very far," said Jackson. "There's so much trust in our employees to make things happen."
As an example, the company recently had a project manager that stood up and said he had a strong passion for social responsibility. This is the part where trust comes into play. Leadership told him that if that was the direction he wanted his career to go in they would support him.
"We have done that on numerous occasions where we allow for people's passions to come to reality," said Jackson.
At DPR, there is no boundary to how far you can go. Especially with the no business titles policy. The company believes that labeling titles to people limited them to that specific role. Without the titles, there is truly no limit to what you can do at DPR. In addition, the company sports an open office environment to allow for constant collaboration. They pride themselves on being one of the first construction companies in the industry to implement an open office environment.
DPR offers all of the core benefits that you can think of and more. With a telehealth benefit, you can access health-related services and information anywhere. The company also offers:
Between the no boundaries culture and this list of great benefits, it's easy to see why so many people love working at DPR.
