Guided by Core Values
At Sluss + Padgett we subscribe to a set of core values that help guide how we work, play, and problem solve together. If these resonate for you, there just might be a role with your name on it.
We are guided by solid moral compasses
We stand for what is just and right, and hold ourselves to a high level of ethical standards. We are accountable for ourselves, our colleagues, our clients and our company. Every day, we take initiative - with integrity and courage - to make our company better.
We are eager and willing to help
We are committed to building an encouraging, caring, and supportive environment. We share a responsibility to support our team members and enrich their lives. We understand that communication starts by listening, understanding different perspectives, and caring about others' success.
We are stronger together
We believe in the power of working together. We build, support and encourage collaboration across teams & departments to solve complex issues. We leverage diverse talents, perspectives and resources that challenge and push us forward as we work together on similar goals. We support each other, the people we serve and the people who make our work possible in order to further our collective purpose.
We are passionate about learning
We are not afraid to make mistakes. We learn from others and from our challenges & successes. We are committed to continuous investments in the growth of our team members. We also ask our teams to actively take responsibility for their own self-development. We develop our people by providing an environment that fosters personal development and professional growth.
We believe in balance
We empower our employees in a work environment that is conducive to creating the optimal work/life balance. We hold ourselves accountable to the commitments we make inside (work) and outside (home) of the office. We believe that a healthy work-life balance helps to maintain physical & mental health, increases productivity, and leads to happier employees.
Sluss+Padgett offers a 4-year, registered apprenticeship program for both Plumbing and
Heating/Cooling technicians that is recognized and certified by the United States Department of
Labor/Bureau of Apprenticeship Training and by license and code authorities that utilize the DOT/BAT
Our apprentices need to meet two key requirements: (1) 160 classroom/online hours per year and (2)
2,000 on-the-job learning hours per year. Our apprentices will gain their on-the-job hour requirement
while working for us.
As an apprentice, our apprentices already have a job! They can earn while they learn, and that means
less time job searching and more time earning money. Once the apprenticeship program is completed,
our apprentices are well on their way to earning a state license while working in their field of expertise.
Other traditional credentialing institutions can cost as much as 20k. Our apprentices stay ahead of the
career curve by starting out as an apprentice. Our apprentices go the extra mile and are willing to put in
the time, energy, and commitment that it takes to build a rewarding career with long term rewards.
