Creating a Family Feel Is Not Just What We Do: It’s Who We Are.
Founded in 1977, East & Westbrook is more than a family-run business. We are an organization that strives to create a place where our team members can grow both professionally and personally, all the while cultivating skill-sets within our trade/discipline. One way we do that is through our Team Green program. We mentor beginning team members in our trade, setting them up for success. Additionally, we give our team the tools to sharpen their leadership, take their precision to the next level and be a part of a family that stretches them in their career and personal life.
Looking for a Career, Not a J.O.B.
Unlike some other companies within the construction industry, East & Westbrook is a career choice employer. Company President, Jonathan Westbrook, communicates it best.
If you are looking for a place to learn a trade, improve your skill sets, have personal and professional growth opportunities, then we are the place for you.
Sticking to Our Core Values
As companies and corporations grow, that small family feel can occasionally fade away if your priorities do not mirror the values you set for your organization. Since our founding days, we have worked hard to ensure we remain true to the same core values that we started with—creating a space where our employees feel like family is and continues to be a key piece of our company culture. That is non-negotiable for us. Just ask our Transportation Operations Manager, Andrew East, who has been with us since he was sixteen years old.
Providing a competitive wage for our employees has been essential to East & Westbrook long before the “Great Resignation”. Everyone wants and deserves to be appropriately compensated for their work. East & Westbrook looks at compensation with a broader lens. We look at compensation not just broken down by the hour but how we support our employees over their entire career. This means looking at how our training and advancement opportunities are a part of the compensation equation, and our employees have the opportunity to increase their salary as they continue their journey with us.
The opportunity for growth is a current key consideration for many candidates in the construction industry and an area that East & Westbrook excels at. We can create career paths for our employees through our ongoing professional development, cross-training, and on-the-job training that mold everyone into a well-rounded construction professional.
Our goal is to make you better, stronger, and faster than when you walked through our door. When you have the opportunity to grow in your career, that confidence can spill over into your personal life.
Two of our team members, Teresa and Zane, say it best.
Providing a comprehensive benefits package that includes medical, vision, dental, paid time off, and retirement program options are a critical component of what we offer our employees. We feel strongly that affordable healthcare is essential to any organization, covering 90% of healthcare costs for our East & Westbrook family members. Our belief in the importance of work-life balance lends itself to our policies concerning paid time off and our company 401k match incentive.
Our team members are more than employees; they are family. Keeping our family safe is at the core of our business. Without upholding the most rigid safety standards, we couldn’t build a lasting foundation for our concrete construction company. We take the trust our team and our clients place in us seriously. East & Westbrook has achieved a high level of safety consciousness and is proud of its achievement in incident prevention.
We are consistently looking for ways to support our team over the long term. This support includes but is not limited to the top in class for compensation, competitive employee benefits, personal and professional development, understanding of work and life balance, up-to-date safety training and processes, and an environment that feels like your second home. Creating a family feel is not just what we do; it is who we are.
