A Positive Work Environment

We like to keep things light. Sure, we have some great core values in place, like adhering to our ethical principles of building and development, but we also just want to work with kind, passionate people. We do a lot of team building activities, are big on respect and loyalty, and focus on establishing a balance between work and personal goals. After all, it’s what allows us to freely collaborate, communicate, and explore all aspects of the design-excellence experience.

Mental Health Playbook for COVID Times

The COVID pandemic affected every industry, and as such, impacted the employees that help those companies succeed. The mental health of our clients and employees took a toll during this time, and so we put together a “Mental Health Playbook for COVID Times” that acts as a supportive tool for our team.

What is the best part about working at Amsted?

It’s the leadership and culture here that makes [winning] awards like Designer of the Year something one could even consider. I’ve certainly benefitted from the group Steve and the leadership team have assembled.

The opportunity that Steve gave me years ago when women weren’t being hired as carpenters in the renovation industry. I’ve had an opportunity to work with and learn from some very talented carpenters.
Being able to say that for the past 24 years and counting I have been with a passionate, family-oriented company that focuses on teamwork.
