Barringer Construction’s bathrooms are an exciting part of any office tour the company gives. “They’re bright and cheerful, perfectly designed and constructed, fun and even a little empowering,” says Tim Miller. “The men’s bathroom is Spiderman-themed, and the women’s [bathroom] is Wonder Woman-themed.” These bathrooms perfectly encapsulate the culture at Barringer: “It’s not what you might expect from a corporate bathroom or a construction firm for that matter — but Barringer isn’t an ordinary company by any means,” says Miller. And Barringer understands that every superhero has an alter ego — one with family, friends and interests. That’s why the company makes sure its employees maintain a healthy work-life balance through flexible schedules, no formal vacation policy and a tuition reimbursement program.
“Barringer has created a work environment where dedication does not go unnoticed. Likewise, the causes and organizations that matter to employees, matter to the company as a whole.”
