Our Core Values—a commitment to Safety, People, Integrity and Ethics, Community, and Excellence in Service—drive our culture.
Committed to inclusion
SAM works hard to nurture a culture of inclusion for its employees. We believe in cultivating a diverse, multitalented people who work together toward a common goal. We are deeply committed to recruiting, hiring, training, mentoring, and advancing workforce of wide-ranging backgrounds, ethnicities, and cultures. We believe this diversity makes us a far stronger, more resilient team.
SAM celebrates a culture of learning, and provides ample ongoing opportunities for professional development. We believe in preparing our employees for the next opportunity will help better serve our employees and clients. We do this through one of our may Learning and Development Programs:
- Tuition Reimbursement
- Continued Education Program
- Training Tuesday
- SAM University Program
- Leadership Conference
We also encourage our professionals’ entrepreneurial spirit. By providing a clear path for growth, and affording our project managers greater responsibility, we assist team members in achieving their goals. And for those who aspire to greater industry visibility, we support their journey in a variety of ways.
Investing in technological growth
Technology is central to SAM’s mission of providing clients with fast, accurate data and actionable solutions. Whether it’s being the first company in North America to deploy advanced aerial scanners, developing proprietary Artificial Intelligence solutions to enhance inspections, or supplementing our Subsurface Utility Engineering processes with the most advanced detection technology, SAM invests in the industry’ most progressive technology. For SAM employees, this means ample opportunity to learn and grow in an environment where technical innovation is a priority.
Our commitment to driving technological change has created a culture where employees are encouraged to think innovatively and push the boundaries of what’s possible. We look beyond available technology to what our client’s need—a strategy that has driven us to collaborate manufacturer’s in the development of new technology. SAM is continually evaluating new solutions, working with vendors to improve their products, and arming managers with the tools to help their teams develop new competencies and skills.
SAM employees enjoy a positive work environment with a best-in-class benefits program. These benefits include generous paid vacation, sick leave, maternity and parental leave, and holidays. We also provide company paid premiums for medical, dental, vision and life insurance plans, as well as a generous prescription drug plan.
