We are a diverse company with people from different backgrounds and cultures. Helix has a work-hard-play-hard mentality and our events and activities are built around that philosophy. Every year we organize a charity golf event which is followed by a party. The holiday party is something we look forward to at the end of every year—and is overwhelmingly rewarding for every employee. We host a free weekend retreat where employees can bring their significant others to a resort in Mesquite, where we work and have various trainings and discussions, followed by bowling, golf, massages, and various enjoyable activities.
COVID-19 has been understandably difficult for everyone, but we at Helix are lucky that construction has been classified as an essential business. We took all the proper precautions in order to make our employees feel safe in every way, as safety is taken very seriously.
At Helix Electric, every employee is valued and appreciated for the sacrifices they make. Their commitment to excellence is what ensures our workplace stays at the top.
