Every summer our Interns take over the NEC Blog to share their adventures with you!! We're kicking that off now with a welcome from Kade Woolverton. We're excited to see what the weeks ahead hold in store for them!
With the summer well underway here at New England Construction, I have become proficient with three types of construction management software, worked on four job-sites, and met far too many awesome people to list.
At New England Construction, when I first shared that my husband and I were expecting, the love and support we received from my ‘work family’ was overwhelming! I felt extremely blessed to work in a place where this type of support was outpouring.
There’s a chill in the air (most days at least!) so it’s hard to focus on anything related to our projects aside from keeping the job sites warm & working and forecasting the snow potential, but this is actually a great time to start thinking about the things you want to accomplish during the summer. That’s right, I said summer. Specifically if you are in an educational environment you know that often the summer provides your only window of time to make some major improvements while your campus population is lower than normal. Perfect timing, no? Well the other factor is that this wonderful window is small, like barely a month or two at times small. So what are you to do if you have objectives to meet?
A well planned “Summer Slammer” is your solution and I sat down with our Vice President of Operations, George Malakidis, a seasoned Summer Slammer veteran, to dive into the details and benefits of these projects.
Actions, not words are truly the driving force behind this Core Value. At NEC we are a team and a family with common purpose and goals, as are most teams, and when we look for new people to join us, it is their actions that define how they will fit with us, not just their words. For most of my life I have always been involved with teams, often through my love of softball, and as the Director of Human Resources I see the true value of those team qualities at play in our work place.
The Leadership Team at New England Construction defines being a Can-Do Team Player as a Core Value because we want to not only serve our individual goals, but support each other and more so our clients. We live this value from the top down by being transparent with every person working for NEC about our big picture goals and our strategies to reach them. We walk the walk and not just talk the talk on a daily basis.
