Hiring a strong workforce traditionally follows a consistent structure for corporations across the region. But when it comes to finding invaluable skill sets for the team at RUSH Construction, Inc., it’s not exactly a textbook process. Instead, it’s a forward thinking mindset. When the opportunity exists, take it.
“Do we have to bring this person on? No. Could we get by without them for a little bit longer? Sure. Will they still be there two months from now? Definitely No.” says President and CEO William Chivers.
In the last 12 months, RUSH has grown its staff by over 50 percent, which, for a small business, is astronomical. In addition, a recent $38.6 million dollar contract secured by RUSH Marine means another 30 staff members will be added by the end of 2018, making their job growth even more astounding.
“Talent is very hard to find,” Chivers says. “We’ve been so fortunate and blessed that we have found some amazing people and some amazing people have found us, too!
