Tri Pointe Homes Earns 2022 Best Workplace in Construction Recognition From Great Place to Work and Fortune

The homebuilder uses outreach, professional development, internal promotions, and other successful tactics to counter record shortages in the construction labor market

INCLINE VILLAGE, Nev., Sept. 07, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Tri Pointe Homes® (NYSE: TPH), one of the largest homebuilders in the US, announced today its recognition as a Best Workplace in Construction™ for 2022-2023. Based on an analysis of survey responses from over 25,000 employees from Great Place to Work-Certified™ companies in the construction industry, the award reflects Tri Pointe Homes’ people-first philosophy coupled with its proactive approach to addressing several challenges in the construction industry, including labor shortages.

“We celebrate all the great awards our company receives throughout the year and the Best Workplace in Construction™ honor really stands out because of the major pain points the industry has faced and the thoughtful and hard work required to surmount those obstacles,” said Tom Mitchell, president and chief operating officer of Tri Pointe Homes. “We will continue to support our team members in every way possible, cultivating a passionate work culture, which is one of the key brand pillars that defines Tri Pointe Homes. But we will also look outward to grow and advocate for our critically important industry, knowing that the efforts we make now will be crucial for its future growth.”

In June 2022, the 16th consecutive month that construction job resignations outpaced or equaled layoffs and discharges1, the number of jobseekers with construction experience plunged to a record low, according to an analysis of federal employment data released by the Associated General Contractors of America2. To combat labor shortages by cultivating the construction talent pipeline, Tri Pointe Homes is taking several steps, including developing a college relations program that the company will pilot with select divisions in 2023. In select divisions, the homebuilder has also created a new construction apprentice position, which will become a feeder path to higher job levels, possibly including assistant construction manager.  

Moreover, Tri Pointe is focusing on internal promotion. For the period from July 1, 2021 to July 1, 2022, 100 percent of Tri Pointe Homes’ senior construction manager positions and 75 percent of director/vice president positions were filled by internal team member promotions. “We have promoted 16 individuals across the company this year to senior construction manager, a position in which they are available to help successfully onboard, train and mentor other team members,” said Heather Breidenthal, chief human resources officer of Tri Pointe Homes. “That has been a game changer for us. Professional development is a huge focus, but compensation will always be at the top of the list for employees. One team member said that, despite only having a high school diploma, he was fortunate enough to make more than most individuals with college degrees.”

Great Place to Work Certification™, the global benchmark for identifying outstanding employee experiences, is recognized worldwide by employees and employers alike with more than 10,000 companies across 60 countries applying for certification every year. According to Great Place to Work® research3, job seekers are 4.5 times more likely to find a great boss at a Great Place to Work-Certified™ company. Additionally, employees at Certified™ workplaces are 93 percent more likely to look forward to going to work, and are twice as likely to be paid fairly, earn an equitable share of the company’s profits, and have a fair chance of being promoted.

Tri Pointe Homes’ certification process earlier this year revealed that 90 percent of employees at the homebuilder say it is a great place to work compared to 59 percent of employees at a typical US-based company. Ninety-six percent of team members said they were made to feel welcome when they joined the company, and 93 percent said they were proud to tell others they work there.
