Barriere’s Employee Benefits Expand

Barriere has developed a holistic suite of employee benefits that prioritize the safety and wellbeing of our workforce and their families, and it recently expanded at the same time we are looking to expand our employee base in Louisiana.

Barriere is the Contractor of Choice for our Gulf South customers and employees.

At Barriere, our goal is to attract and develop top talent then hire from within through promotions. Many of the region’s industry experts have started out with us, grown with us, and chosen to build life-long careers with us. We know our employees who share and perpetuate our values are the main reason our customers choose us, and we aim to keep them!

Barriere’s Culture of Care programs and resources are designed to support our 430 employees in pursuing their personal and our collective wellbeing. Today our Culture of Care Program Spotlight series features a summary of the benefits employees enjoy by choosing Barriere.
