Our Culture

Excellent people are the key to achieving our vision. We employ a world-class, motivated, team-spirited workforce, and create a dynamic atmosphere in which employees may flourish and reach their highest potential.

 

We see the inherent value in every individual and strive to create a collaborative, open working environment where every team member is expected to contribute. We form long lasting, trusted relationships through mutual respect, loyalty, community involvement, and support that extend beyond our job responsibilities.

 

We celebrate diversity by showing genuine interest, regard, and appreciation for different people, approaches and styles, as we know our collective experience affords us a competitive edge.

 

 

Teamwork

 

Teamwork is at the heart of how we operate. We continually look to help one another and work together towards common goals. We know from experience that we can achieve much more collectively than any of us could individually.

 

Have fun

 

A happy work environment means our employees want to stay with us and we can attract the best people. The evidence that fun boosts productivity is compelling. We constantly look for individuals with a positive mindset, that help us achieve our goals with their capacities and attitude.

 

Pioneering

 

We have a healthy dissatisfaction with the status quo.

 

We are committed to the pioneering spirit because it created us and still drives us as a business. It gives us the passion for winning and for creating a better future. It means that we are always willing to take intelligent risks.

 

Simply put, we are pioneers who have an enterprising spirit and an unwavering determination to advance what is right and worthwhile. We think big and are bold in driving towards new horizons.

 

 

 

Trust

 

People do business with people they like and trust. As a relationship-driven firm, we are deeply committed to building and sustaining long-term internal and external partnerships, grounded in trust and transparency.

 

Humility

 

We seek continually to understand and align the interests of all stakeholders, and we treat everyone with fairness, compassion, and respect. We believe that “arrogance kills” and has no place at NARA.

 

Determination

 

We act on our own initiative, take entrepreneurial responsibility, and pursue our goals with determination. We possess an inner strength that allows us to remain dedicated to our purpose.  We accomplish extraordinary results through determination. We have a determination to make things happen and be the best at what we do.

 

We do whatever it takes to live up to our commitments. Over the course of a long and complex project, that means fostering a culture of adaptability and creativity. We understand that construction and working in fully operational facilities can be hard and demanding. We understand that it takes resilience and drive to meet the changing demands of our clients, and we are focused on successfully making it to the finish line.

 

 

 

 

Balance

We are thoughtful about how we spend our time and energy. While we pursue excellence on the job, we also support each other to live our best lives—pursuing personal projects, spending time with loved ones, and recharging our energy. We are passionate and purpose driven; at the same time, we stay grounded, respect boundaries, and avoid burnout.
