Building a career should be exciting, challenging and rewarding. We encourage collaboration and provide opportunities for our employees to develop their careers while enjoying their work environment. Our national reach paired with a local focus is what makes American Fire one of the leading employers in the engineering industry.
We support open and honest two-way communication amongst our employees. Our most senior executives present quarterly updates to provide every employee with a firsthand account of current happenings and goals. At American Fire, we are always seeking ways to improve our organization, which has led to the creation of the company-shaping program. This program gives employees the ability to suggest and analyze a new policy or procedural change within the company. We value the feedback we receive from staff by administering engagement surveys to new hires on a quarterly and annual basis in order to improve the overall morale of the organization. Also, we have an office sponsor program in which our senior leaders frequently visit our different offices to instill the company message and provide a forum for in-person feedback.
