We actively work to cultivate our culture through values-driven engagement, ensuring each person feels like a valued member of our team, achieving meaningful work within an environment of trust. Our goal is that each person shows up as the best version of themselves; energized, empowered and engaged to do their greatest work. When we engage people at all levels of the organization creativity thrives, quality improves and a culture of responsiveness is born. When we provide flexibility and options throughout the workday, contribution grows. When we ask team members to share their voice and make them stakeholders in the process, accountability soars.
Our culture reinforces and celebrates our core values in both our employee and client experiences. Whether it is team member development, recognition, or the way we serve each other and our clients, our purpose guides our relationships with one another.
Meeting our employees’ most basic needs, our offices offer open concept sit-stand workstations, hoteling areas, robust technology and a variety of meeting zones. EUA invests in employee centered space at all our offices to improve the daily experience. We offer the ability to flex between our offices in Milwaukee, Madison, Green Bay, Denver and Atlanta, giving employees the chance to collaborate with an expanded group of colleagues across the firm.
Mentoring, feedback and professional growth are also a critical component of our culture. We offer dedicated training hours to staff and have created an internal EUA University (EUA:U) with classes taught by peers as well as external experts. Through monthly studio and quarterly firm meetings, we give full access to firm information and direction and we provide employees with a review outlet to gain peer and leadership feedback.
Well-being support is also at the core of who we are. We have defined five EUA Well-Being Essentials--career, social, financial, physical and community--and proactively support our employees in these areas of well-being. EUA is a member of the Wellness Council of Wisconsin, providing us resources to continuously learn and grow our employee support system. A few ways in which we support employee well-being through reward and acknowledgment includes regular fruit deliveries, catered social events, flexible hours and a generous profit-sharing program to reward our employees for their hard work. We also know the power of a team that not only works but plays together. We encourage camaraderie through teambuilding events, athletic competitions (kickball, shuffleboard, golf, etc.) book clubs and other employee resource group activities. And we never forget the impact of showing up during life’s important moments: for instance, celebrating the birth of a child or educational achievements or being present for each other during difficult times.
EUA is committed to making a positive impact on our environment. Our employee-led Sustainability Committee has implemented numerous initiatives throughout our offices to reduce waste and promote well-being. As a firm, we have become official signatories to the AIA 2030 Commitment aiming to bring sustainable design to every project.
