What Rutherford Values in Their People
Problem Solvers – On Rutherford’s projects, we’re expected to bring a level of technical competence. Typically, owners and consultants have the vision of the final product, but they need us to tell them how the project comes together. Inevitably, constructability, scheduling and resources issues arise on the jobsite. We want people that take the initiative to solve these problems.
Confidence – Our projects have compressed schedules with tight deadlines. We want people that can make tough decisions under pressure with the best available information.
Self-Awareness – Can you take advice well? Do you act on the wisdom and suggestions of others? Are you aware of the limits of your abilities and knowledge? Rutherford’s greatest strength is its people. We have found through decades of trial and error that the most successful projects that a single person cannot effectively complete a project. We need to rely on each other, and we need people to realize when they require support from others.
Honesty – We have a deep network of clients, subcontractors and other industry partners that have learned from years of working with us that Rutherford is a trustworthy company. We want people that maintain that reputation.
‘Get-It-Done’ Mentality –When a person displays an urgency to get something done and takes a personal stake in the outcome, the project is successful ten times out of ten.
People Who Put Safety as a Top Priority – Our goal is to ensure that our employees, subcontractors and industry partners go home safely every night. Jobsite accidents don’t just affect the victim. The families, coworkers and witnesses have to deal with the aftermath as well. Nothing is more important than safety on the jobsite.
Customer Service Focused – Clients hire Rutherford Contracting because they expect a certain level of construction expertise. We value people that are able to use that expertise to solve problems for clients and consultants. We don’t complain when things get rough. We find solutions.
Proactive Thought – The construction industry requires perpetual preplanning to ensure things run smoothly. Have you ordered your long lead items? Is your spray-foam guy getting onsite before the mason? Is your traffic control plan in place? Simply put- when construction professions act proactively instead of reactively, projects are successful.
