Austin Absolutes

Absolutes are different from values in that absolutes are the company's base-line expectations that every employee will respect, adhere to, and demonstrate.

  • Act with Honesty and Integrity - It is expected of all employees to take personal responsibility for their standard of behavior and for the decisions they make every day. Honesty and Integrity must always be at the core of those decisions. Both of these attributes are held in the highest regard at Austin and will always guide us to “Do the Right Thing.”
  • Constantly Focus on Safety and Quality - Safety is paramount to our Company. Ensuring a safe work environment for our employees, clients and partners is the expectation. We believe that a focus on Safety contributes to overall Quality. All Austin employees work toward producing the highest quality work, both in the field and within our offices.
  • Provide Professional and Technical Excellence - Providing Professional and Technical Excellence to our clients is at the root of what we do. Continually improving our employees’ skills allows us to deliver on this core value. By constantly providing professional and technical excellence and continually improving our abilities, we create the opportunity for our employees to grow and advance within our Company.
  • Promote a Cooperative Team Environment - Austin’s goal is to collaborate with all team members associated with our projects including clients, partners, subcontractors, sub-consultants, vendors, regulatory authorities and employees throughout all levels of our Company. Working in such an environment allows the Company to make informed and efficient resolutions to even the most complex issues.
  • Respect for our Employees, Clients, Partners, Vendors and Subcontractors - Treating others with respect allows us to demonstrate the professionalism that is expected by co-workers and clients.
