How does one HR manager facilitate safety training and real-time personnel and benefits reports for 216 staff employees—plus an additional 600 craft employees—across a dozen heavy construction projects in seven states? She uses BambooHR.
Stacy and Witbeck is one of the country’s largest heavy civil contractors and top builder of light rail, commuter rail and streetcar systems across the United States. This employee-owned company has a family feel where executives are on a first-name basis with front-line employees. The business has built its reputation by providing great value for its employees, who, in turn, provide great value for the communities they serve.
Safety training is a top priority at Stacy and Witbeck. But staying on top of and documenting each employee’s progress is difficult with offices in seven states. In addition, ever-changing project staffing needs require that an employee information system conform to the company’s way of doing things—not the other way around. Stacy and Witbeck needed an HRIS that’s as efficient, responsive and responsible as the company strives to be.
BambooHR created a customized training module that makes it easy to pull accurate, real-time reports and receive automated safety-training alerts. This visibility helps the company increase compliance and quickly matches the capabilities of its total workforce when bidding new projects.
Stacy and Witbeck HR Manager, Caroline Kim, said: “Our employees take pride in providing transportation alternatives for people. BambooHR provided us with an innovative alternative to paper files and spreadsheets. I almost didn’t complete the five other Human Resources Information System (HRIS) demos I’d scheduled after seeing how simple and clean BambooHR’s interface was. BambooHR has become the central information hub of our company.”
