Why Work at HEI?

Since opening our doors in 1968, HEI has not only been in the civil engineering business, but also the business of people. We strive to build our team with extraordinarily talented people who understand the value of working collaboratively and are dedicated to our common goals. In general that is what makes HEI thrive, the passion our team has to make a difference in the communities we serve by working together.

our values

Our core values truly define where HEI has been and what it is today...

Being Client-Focused

When our clients are successful, we’re successful. Our clients are a top priority, and our team ensures that they’re given our best efforts every time. We value the opportunity to serve them, and strive to earn their repeat business.

Commitment to Quality/Excellence

At HEI, we believe that true excellence is part of every step of the journey. Our commitment to quality is ingrained in our culture and reflected in the caliber of our team members. We are committed to being a leader in the industry and providing engaging opportunities for our staff.

Striving to be The Ideal Team Player

The final core value comes from “The Ideal Team Player,” written by Patrick Lencioni. As the title suggests, this book gave us the criteria that we look for in our team members when hiring staff as well as expected pillars of performance throughout their employment life. If the virtues of being humble, hungry, and smart (emotional IQ) resonate with you, then you may be a good fit at HEI!

the HEI way...

Engaging. Inspiring.

”What’s the company culture like?” is one of the questions we hear most from prospective employees. The problem with this question is that culture can be a very hard thing to communicate. By definition, work culture is a collection of attitudes, beliefs, and behaviors. In simple terms, culture means to welcome all people, treat all with respect, demonstrate a serving heart at work and in our communities, work hard, play hard, and have fun!

That’s it, and when we say fun, our Fun Squad keeps it rolling with engaging activities such as: bowling, golf outings, trivia games, food truck lunches, axe throwing, free ticket drawings to various sporting events, Halloween contests, holiday parties, and more. There’s always something to look forward to when you are working at HEI!
