  • Culture

    We celebrate success by celebrating each other. Our employees are the face, voice, and heart of our company. We take great pride in finding ways to promote a working environment that encourages teamwork, values family, and continually offers creative ways to have fun. And a big part of our culture can be found in Balfour Beatty Spirit! — an in-house team created specifically to promote celebrations within our employee family. The following are just a few examples of the ways in which Balfour Beatty Spirit! helps celebrate our unique culture: Fight Night — A grassroots event that started when employees wanted to help fellow teammates in their fight against cancer. Employees wear elaborate costumes and "battle" each other in arm wrestling matches and the event raises over $10,000 each year for cancer research and treatment. Chili Cook-offs — Departments and jobsite teams face-off as subcontractors, clients, and architects judge the best down-home chili each team has to offer. And every year, the age-old question arises: "Does real chili have beans or not?" Family Day — School-aged kids spend a day on the job with Mom or Dad to learn more about work, recent projects, and how we celebrate the people who make up the Balfour Beatty Construction family.
