Life at Westwood
A strong culture is the product of great people who share intrinsic values
The reason our people work well together is that we share similar personal core values. We are inclusive and support each other to be successful, which benefits our clients too. Our culture draws us together as professionals and friends; valuing diverse perspectives, doing what we love to do, and serving our clients and communities in ways that make them shine.
We are a relationship-based business – We create lasting relationships by providing great service to each other, our clients, and our communities.
We are empowered to innovate. We invest in faster and more effective ways to do our work. This challenges our own best practices and pushes the company forward.
We are responsive, passionate, and hard-working. It is that dedication that takes us to new heights.
We are motivated to take risks and be proactive in our industry and for our clients.
We are encouraged to build on our passions and grow in our careers. Something very powerful happens when you align a person’s interests and passion with the company’s vision.
In this video, Westwood’s team provides a glimpse of company culture and their involvement in this 1600-acre master planned community. Skye Canyon drew from the team’s expertise in public infrastructure and private development master planning, which includes large detention basins, roadway design, traffic signal systems, water reservoir, land use planning, subdivision layout, and improvement plan design.
Nancy really enjoys working with her team in Las Vegas. Her appreciation for them grew even more after she moved to Phoenix when she got married. With a Westwood office in Phoenix and the support of her supervisor, Nancy still works with her Las Vegas team every day. Westwood’s advanced communication and network technology helps her continue to do what she loves, with a team she grew up with, while building new relationships at work.
Balancing work and study can also be difficult. When Nancy worked to finish her master's degree and pass her PE exam, she got the support and flexibility she needed. Employees benefit from Westwood’s support of their professional licensing and continuing education goals, as do Westwood and its clients!
My team and Westwood give me the opportunity to grow, live my life, and still be an engineer.
