Hamilton came into 2015 knowing this would be one of the busiest years in its 76 year history. And when you have lots of new work, you know you have to add to your talent base to get the work done right. And that’s just what we’ve done. Since the beginning of the year, Hamilton has brought on more than 50 new employees. These employees represent the cream of the crop in construction—selected from more than 1,000 applications received during the past six months. Says Operations Manager Con O’Connor, “The way we approach construction is different than a lot of other companies, and so our first goal with new hires is to make sure they are acclimated to our way of doing things safely. We have a tremendous support network in place here. We focus on helping them to recognize all of the resources they can call upon.” “People at Hamilton like to work hard—we just need to focus on making sure we are all moving toward the same goal” Con adds. He also points out that a number of our long-time employees have stepped up to take on new assignments. He reports the excitement in the field is high this year. While there is no way to recognize all the new hires, we’ve selected a few people to highlight in this issue and hope all of you join us in welcoming everyone to the team!
