Innovation, hard work and integrity. These are the keys to Kiewit's success. Kiewit is one of North America's largest and most respected construction and mining organizations. For over 125 years, we have delivered world-class solutions to projects of every size, in every market. No project is too challenging or unique, too big or small. Our goal for every project is the same — build it safely, on time, on budget and with no surprises.
Kiewit is synonymous with superior quality. We've built our reputation on the principles of broad-based employee ownership, autonomous local offices, dedication to employee training and development, and sound financial practices. Our commitment to these principles is reflected in the success of our projects. We're consistently ranked as one of the top 10 contractors by Engineering News-Record.
Kiewit people are defined by a few basic characteristics. They have a willingness to take on challenges and explore new ideas; they have the drive to excel and the determination to perform their best. They carry out work in the safest manner possible, as demonstrated by a safety record that is unmatched in the industry. As employee-owners, Kiewit people have a stake in the success of every project.
Kiewit people are experts. From day one, our employees receive some of the finest training in the industry, coupled with hands–on mentoring. We are as dedicated to the success of the people we hire to build our projects as we are to the people who hire us to build them. Kiewit has one of the highest percentages of graduate and registered engineers in the industry, and our senior operations managers have been with us an average of 25 years.
As a local contractor with extraordinary national resources and support, few companies can match Kiewit's ability to meet a client's needs. Our subsidiaries operate from a network of offices that extends throughout North America. We've completed projects from the Arctic Circle to the Gulf of Mexico. The highway, the tunnel, the dam, the airport, the energy plant and the high–rise—no matter how complex the project, we meticulously plan every detail and double check our double checks. It's a philosophy that has not only allowed us to reach our dreams of success, but to exceed them.
Our industry is challenging and we work hard at Kiewit to meet those challenges. We reward our employees' hard work with an exceptional benefits package designed to meet their needs. Our employees earn financial rewards that lead both our industry and most Fortune 500 companies. In addition to our compensation plan, we offer comprehensive medical and dental insurance, short- and long-term income protection, one of the industry's best retirement plans, a unique employee stock ownership program and much more.
