Our mantra isn’t something we take lightly. You’ll see it in action every day, whether it’s through one of our community service, mentorship or diversity programs aimed toward bettering the lives of our employees and our communities.
Empow(HER), the Henderson women's network, was created to help propel women through connections, collaboration, and development. Made for women, by women, Empow(HER) offers educational sessions, networking, and programs that encourage young women to pursue careers in STEM.
The Henderson Foundation is dedicated to impacting the community by empowering individuals, and funding efforts that complement and support the interests, values and vision of Henderson Engineers, Inc.
The motto at Henderson Engineers is Work Hard, Play Hard, Give Back, and we take each aspect to heart. Because our community is greatly important to us, we organize community service for hands—on volunteering year—round, encouraging all employees to take advantage of their paid Give Back time. Additionally, the Henderson Foundation supports numerous groups through financial contributions and in—kind donation drives.
Our core values drive us to put people first, lead with innovation, and be great partners through the entire life of a building. Our employees notice right away that we foster a family environment and value a comfortable workplace that inspires our teammates to reach their full potential. We believe happy employees go the extra mile, which results in happy clients. We are diligent about providing a best—in—class work environment that encourages delivering the best quality while also having fun along the way.
