We're on a mission to change the dirt world. Ready to join?
Our Mission & Values
Making the Dirt World a better place.
While the construction, mining, demolition, and heavy equipment industries (the Dirt World) are all essential to society, they’re also old school. The world’s changed, and we must change with it if there is to be a future for the Dirt World.
That’s where everything at BuildWitt starts. If it doesn’t further our mission, we don’t do it. While we take care of everyone on the journey with us, having a higher purpose to our work beyond a paycheck makes all the work worthwhile.
Develop 3X people.
We believe great people can not only outperform ordinary people but can create 3X more value. These are the humans we aim to hire and develop. Beyond the massive increase in value for our Partners, we can, in theory, pay everyone 2X while creating a 3X return. When hiring, it's either a hell yes or a no. If they're not a 3X person or don't have the potential to be through experience and training, we can't afford to make the hire, even if our need to fill the position is high. It's entirely our responsibility to attract and develop all the 3X people we need. We must have a strong pipeline of 3X people at all times. Accountability is key. If someone isn't living up to the team's 3X standards, we must hold them accountable, offer guidance and training, and adjust further when needed.
Excellence is a habit.
How we do anything is how we do everything. We take pride in the smallest details of everything we do. Excellence in the details creates excellence overall. Hold yourself accountable. Create a total intolerance for shortcuts. Regularly practice excellence in all aspects of your life. “We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit.” -- Aristotle
Default to transparency. Whether it’s communicating frustrations with another BuildWitt team member or admitting a mistake to a Partner, being honest and transparent not only wins but is the only path we walk. We hold no secrets as a business and communicate everything we do with our team. By sharing information, we empower our people. We must practice and lead with transparency before we expect others to do so. Don’t expect change if you haven’t been transparent with those around you.
Do what's right.
Do what’s right, no matter the cost. Living with integrity will not only earn you the respect of others but will build your self-confidence to new levels. “Without integrity, not much else matters.” -- Winston Churchill
We expect everyone, no matter their position, to make and own decisions. Failure to act is worse than failure itself. If you do what you believe is right, we will support you, no matter the outcome. Empowering everyone to act allows us to operate faster and gives everyone the ability to control their destinies. There are no excuses when you’re the one making the decisions. “In any moment of decision, the best thing you can do is the right thing, the next best thing is the wrong thing, and the worst thing you can do is nothing.” -- Theodore Roosevelt
Be a friend.
Be a friend to those around you, whether they’re on the BuildWitt team, our Partners, or others in your life. Go above and beyond to love, care for, celebrate, and be there for people in the most genuine way possible, with nothing expected in return. “It is good to love many things, for therein lies the true strength, and whosoever loves much performs much, and can accomplish much, and what is done in love is well done.” ― Vincent Van Gogh
Stay humble or be humbled.
Maintain a strong sense of humility, especially while achieving the highest levels of success. We aren’t the ones changing the dirt world -- our Partners are. Everything we do is in service to our partners, each other, and the Dirt World. While ego is a must, we don’t tolerate arrogance. “A great man is always willing to be little.” -- Ralph Waldo Emerson
Be the example.
First and foremost, this value speaks to our safety program. We strive to be the example of how to work, act, and think safely on every project we step foot on. Keep in mind -- everyone is ALWAYS watching, so we are ALWAYS the example to follow. We must LIVE safely at all times, not only when it’s seemingly expected. Beyond safety, being the example extends to how we operate as a business, how we train, our culture, our communication, and any other aspect of BuildWitt. People are always watching. “Leading by example isn’t the best way to lead, it’s the only way.” -- Vince Lombardi
KISS (Keep It Simple, Stupid)
Aim for simple. Complexity is the enemy. We serve industries that value simplicity. We can only meet our Partners where they are if we mirror their simple way of doing business. Simplify wherever and whenever possible. "Everything should be as simple as it can be, but not simpler." -- Einstein
What we do.
BuildWitt’s a media group that started with marketing and now helps our Partners with HR, recruiting and business development. We partner with the best companies in the industry and solve whatever problems they face. Our unique approach leads us all over the US, where we’ll be in tunnels one day and massive open-pit mines the next. While it ain’t easy, we have a whole lot of fun while we do it.
