At Zachry Construction Corporation, we believe that training and career development are part of the “FOUNDATION FOR OUR FUTURE.”
Zachry has made a commitment to stay at the forefront of our industry, and part of achieving that commitment includes ensuring our employees receive the best training and professional development available. In order to achieve this goal, Zachry developed Zachry Academy, an internal training program designed to expose employees to industry and company-wide best practices, create a network of resources internal to the organization, and foster a collaborative and team oriented environment.
When you attend a Zachry Academy session, you will find yourself in a highly stimulating and challenging training setting. No matter where you are at in your career, Zachry offers education, training, and assistance to build your skills, grow your knowledge base, and expand in your career.
Our people are the foundation of our successes and Zachry Academy is the “Foundation For Our Future.”
Craft Training / On-the-Job Training
At Zachry, we are equally committed to providing our skilled craft employees with training opportunities and leadership roles. We encourage our employees to become skilled in multiple crafts and allow for dedicated off-site training opportunities as well as on-the-job training. At Zachry, we believe that everyone can grow in their skills and abilities and we give our craft workers the tools they need to succeed.
In order to improve as a company, we must also improve ourselves. Every Zachry employee participates in the Career Blueprint program on an annual basis. This evaluation process also both employees and managers to discuss future opportunities as well as short and long-term career goals.
One of the ways in which Zachry is able to show its commitment to employee development is through the Tuition Reimbursement Program. This program allows eligible Zachry employees to apply for tuition reimbursement if they are seeking a higher level of education. We believe that if you are committed to furthering your education, then we are committed to assisting you.
When you work for Zachry, you will also be encouraged to participate in professional organizations within your area of expertise – for example, engineers are encouraged to obtain their Professional Engineer (P.E.) designation. Regardless of your subject area, Zachry encourages its employees to seek membership in professional organizations as well as professional licensing, registration, and/or certificates befitting your chosen profession.
