Perks and Programs

We asked Hoar Construction/Hoar Program Management to share a few programs they feel really capture what's unique about their workplace. Here is what they had to say.

  • Half Day Friday: We compress a 40-hour work week into four and a half days by starting our workdays a little early. Hoar closes at 11:30 a.m. on Friday, so our employees can take advantage of reduced traffic and extra personal time with their family and friends.
  • Free Financial Advice: The company partners with a financial adviser who is available to meet with all employees and their family members to help coach and guide them on financial matters free of charge.
  • 401K: All employees are eligible to take advantage of our 401K plan, which offers a variety of investment options to meet individual retirement goals and risk tolerance. The company makes a discretionary match each year which historically has been at least 25%.
  • Bonuses: At the end of the fiscal year, every eligible employee receives an annual profit-sharing bonus in appreciation of their contributions to Hoar's success.
  • Safety Awards: To recognize safe working practices, Hoar rewards employees with cash rewards, gift cards, and merchandise.
  • Gym Membership Reimbursement: Employees are reimbursed 2/3rds of the cost of the membership up to $599.00
  • Flexible Work Programs: Hoar recognizes that in today’s world many of us may be juggling the competing demands of our work and personal lives. To give employees better control over their time, Hoar supports alternative work arrangements such as flexible work hours, work schedules and in some cases work locations.
  • New Hire Mentoring Programs: Mentoring allows our employees to come together to transfer or develop a specific skill set. It’s a gateway to individual and organizational growth and development. At Hoar, mentoring takes place at all levels of the organization, through traditional one-on-one mentoring partnerships, in peer and team mentoring, and especially as you begin settling into a new role with the company. This process is a tool that helps individuals to grow into their full potential, enriching the workplace and helping Hoar improve.
  • Hoar University: Our career development philosophy underscores that the primary way employees develop is through work experiences. We believe feedback and relationship-building are important components to an individual’s development. But we don’t stop there, we supplement that development with traditional and targeted training opportunities each month through Hoar University.
