We put the safety of our people, our customers, the traveling public, and our communities first, so we can focus on the quality and efficiency that enable us to meet tight deadlines and provide legendary customer service.
After nearly 70 years in business, we recognize that our employees form the foundation of this trust and are the reason our entrepreneurial culture thrives on a diverse mix of abilities – allowing us to provide innovative solutions while opening doors in new markets around the Gulf South. Our culture of care inspires our employees and creates opportunities to advance within the company to new positions and responsibilities. Our most valuable asset has always been our dedicated workforce, which we believe to be the best in Louisiana. As we grow our business, it is part of our mission to continue promoting from within our ranks to build lasting careers for our employees.
Barriere is a place where people come to build a career. In fact, over 30% of our workforce has more than 10 years of experience here! Defined career paths are designed to help our workforce move up the ranks, and dedicated training efforts at all levels of employment ensure that our employees have the training, education, and development opportunities necessary to succeed.
At Barriere, we strive to promote existing employees, announcing 15 internal promotions in 2017 alone. From interns to foremen to project managers, our employees are encouraged to look and reach beyond the status quo to deliver safety and quality in every aspect of every project. And our reputation for ethical behavior enables us to attract and retain the best talent and loyal customers.
Barriere field crews have an extensive understanding of construction practices, materials specifications, local soil conditions, and installation standards. Professional engineers, project managers, and safety, training, risk management, and quality control specialists provide best-in-class expertise. And our equipment operators, craft professionals, and tradespersons excel in the details.
It is our culture of care, to doing every job right – the first time and every time – that helps ensure the highest level of customer satisfaction and retention and a reason why our employee tenure ranges from one to 40+ years of service; a testament to Barriere’s culture and a clear focus on the future.
