In addition to our outstanding salary and benefits package, we focus on employee development. Tricorp Group believes in mentoring, training (including internal train-the-trainer programs), and promoting from within the company, which increases satisfaction, performance, and retention. 80% of the company’s current Project Managers began as Project Engineer Interns. Chris Cormier, who became President of Tricorp Group in 2020, started as an Intern in 2006.
Not only is upper management available for guidance at the workplace, but they also care about their employees’ personal lives. While going through a difficult period in my life, the CEO offered to become my gym partner. For next few months, we would meet up at the gym before the work day started.
I went from not knowing a single thing about the industry as an intern, to a project engineer, and now Junior Estimator. Everything I know about this industry is thanks to Tricorp Group. This company really allows for growth in the company by training from within. I am very proud and thankful to be working for a company that provides such opportunities.
Tricorp is the first company I have worked for in my 38 years of life, where I have actually felt appreciated. They make sure to acknowledge all their employees and let them know they are ALL appreciated, regardless of the position they hold.
I have worked other places where I was just a number, at Tricorp Group, upper management interacts with us daily to ensure we are meeting our goals, while coaching us to a higher standard of operation.
My company does a lot of things behind the scenes for employees. They gave me help when my daughter and I needed to escape my abusive ex-spouse, including helping me move to a new town. They gave me time off and checked in on me, let me have time off to get my kid to counseling. I am a different person now thanks to the opportunity they gave me to change my life.
The company helped another of our employees raise money for a gas generator for relatives of his in the Ukraine. All the employees had a chance to donate as well as the company itself, and we were able to get the generator. The family in Ukraine had a child who had a kidney transplant and didn't have a way to stay warm last winter with the utilities out due to the war. It was a great feeling to be able to help.
