An Insider's view of Honest Buildings

How does your team reward individual success?

After managing a small group when I first joined Honest Buildings, I was given the opportunity to build out a department and team from scratch. I learned a ton throughout the process and was supported at all times. The leadership at Honest Buildings works hard to recognize individual success and cares deeply about every employee's happiness.

How does the company support your career growth?

The mentorship I've gained at Honest Buildings has championed me to speak up for what I want out of my career. Honest Buildings has taught me how to advocate for myself, given me the courage needed to pitch ideas, and an environment where I feel supported if I choose to explore those ideas.

Chelsi

How do your team's ideas influence the company's direction?

Every single person in Honest Buildings contributes to creating our company goals. We have a huge opportunity to put into place things that haven’t been created yet. If someone sees an opportunity and they want to work to fill that gap, we give them all the resources they need to help grow the company (and themselves) as much as possible.

Crystal

Chief Brand and Performance Officer

What are some things you learned at the company?

What makes Honest Buildings such a great place to work is the opportunity to continue learning. I can always tell my team and my manager something I'm interested in, and they will work hard to carve room for me to learn a new skill or method. This is especially importantly on the engineering team, as technology is evolving every day.
