Culture

Our culture is unique. As we have grown in numbers and expanded our services over the years, we enjoy the diverse services we now provide. Working at AquAeTer requires us to be responsive and adept at covering the variety of tasks that may be required in a year, a month, a week, a day, or in hours. On Monday, we may be sitting in the corporate board rooms of our clients’ offices, and on Tuesday we’ll be in scuba gear on a boat to collect water quality samples for an NPDES permit renewal. Our staff is incredibly flexible as they shift roles (and work attire) to meet the demands of the day.

Our culture is mobile. Whether out in the field communicating real-time-data or in our conference rooms engaged in team discussions to design project concepts or work plans, we operate as a team. We are always looking for new ways of approaching projects or issues-whether it is developing value-added services for our clients, or improving internal processes. We transition quickly from activities and project roles, such as conference calls with clients, conducting long-term BOD studies in our in-house laboratory, or gearing up teams and equipment for field investigations. Our staff is always available, mobile, and responsive.

Our culture is about our employees. AquAeTer would not be successful if it weren’t for our employees. We have dedicated professionals who conduct themselves with integrity and efficiency, and pride themselves on the quality of work they provide. The variety of backgrounds our staff offers gives us the diversity we need to challenge ourselves, each other, and even our clients. We take personal ownership of our clients’ goals and approach their projects as if we are spending our very own dollars. We are an interactive dynamic team that enjoys working closely with our clients, understanding their overall needs, and forming long-term relationships based on trust and mutual respect.

Our culture is refreshing. We maintain a sense of humor and a comfortable atmosphere while in the office. It allows us to mentally refresh from the ever-changing demands we routinely face. Throughout each year, we enjoy company events, such as, employee celebrations, spontaneous parties (like the pizza party at the conclusion of a long river study), summer picnics, or company events at the Beechgrove Greenhouse.

From the trenches to the board rooms, we enjoy meeting the demands of our clients and finding new ways to solve problems together. We see our employees and our clients as part of the whole AquAeTer family. We are very thankful for the past years of loyalty from both our employees and our clients and we look forward to future opportunities yet to come.
