Our Culture: Our organization’s culture is built on our Values of Team Members, Safety, Quality and Customer Service. Our Values explain why we are in business. Every team member is expected to live by a code of conduct, called our Leadership Commitments. Our Leadership Commitments are Teamwork, Motivation, Leadership, Accountability and Integrity. Together, they represent how we show pride in choosing to be a team member with County Materials, and how we value our customers and our coworkers.
Employee Leadership Awards: Recognizing great behavior and performance is a priority in our organization. Our peer-nominated Employee Leadership Awards Program offers an opportunity for everyone to be acknowledged and rewarded for “going the extra mile” and living our Leadership Commitments. Our appreciation program ensures that employees have a chance to be recognized for giving their best every day and contributing to the success of our company.
Dynamic Environment: Our company is constantly integrating new technologies to meet competitive demands and safety expectations. Advancements in products, equipment and systems are continuously creating career opportunities and allowing us to expand into new markets. With more than 1,500 employees, our dynamic, fast-paced organization manufactures and supplies a large selection of high quality concrete products and related materials used in construction and landscaping markets. Our strengths include concrete manufacturing capabilities, construction industry experience and a customer-service-focus. We supply products used in infrastructure, transportation, commercial, municipal, agricultural, and residential applications.
Safety: Employee safety is critically important in everything we do. Safety is driven by a strong commitment from top-level management through our GUARD for LIFE principles, and safe behaviors and attitudes are part of our organization's core values. We continue to make significant strides in safety and wellness by implementing innovative programs and partnering with our employees, with regulators, and with our communities.
Wellness: In 2012, we introduced Explore Wellness — a health and wellness program for our employees and their families designed to help you explore what personal wellness means to you. Having healthy, productive team members is critical to business success. Explore Wellness helps provide both the motivation employees need and the appropriate support. In these and other ways, we are striving to promote a high-achieving workforce that successfully manages both personal and professional responsibilities. The Explore Wellness program currently offers quarterly programs to encourage our employees to challenge themselves to focus on their individual health and wellness. Employees can earn incentives for successful participation.
Professional Growth and Development: We believe that, if given the opportunity and proper resources, motivated people will make the most of their careers and contribute to the success of the company. We want to support employees in their efforts for professional growth and development by offering training and educational opportunities both within our organization and through industry resources. We also will continue to build on a positive culture in which employees are encouraged to set goals and grow professionally.
