The GPRS Difference
What sets a GPRS Team Member apart?
The key to GPRS’s success is our team. Our team members are the best in the industry, and it is for this reason that we have been able to achieve such growth. Some of the key qualities which set our team members apart include:
Trustworthiness and reliability are key factors when it comes to selecting any type of service, especially within the construction industry. Being able to rely on results and recommendations can mean the difference between a successful project and a failure. GPRS places our company’s integrity at the forefront when looking for potential employees, seeking out individuals with high moral character.
Ground penetrating radar is a highly technical and precise system. GPRS ensures that our team members achieve the highest degree of competency in this field through our robust training process, mentoring system, and ongoing support structure. Education is a continual process, and one we take very seriously. GPRS recently developed and implemented subsurface investigation methodology (SIM)- a comprehensive standard for our scanning processes. Our team members are required to undergo our SIM training program to ensure their competence in terms of equipment, field knowledge, and providing the most accurate results in each given situation. Our investment in training and mentorship programs enables us to provide the best quality service, every time.
While our Project Managers often perform jobs individually, it is not without the backing of the entire GPRS team behind them. A collaborative mindset is encouraged through our training program and team leadership. Each team member works with a group of qualified GPRS Project Managers led by a seasoned Area Manager. This structure ensures that all team members receive critical knowledge and support from each other.
Dedication to Safety
GPRS puts safety first in everything we do. We understand the inherent risk in the work we do, and take all possible steps to create a safe environment for our employees, our customers, and our community. Training is a key part of mitigating risk- team members are required to undergo OSHA training as a part of their initial two month training program. Hazard training, toolbox talks, and site-specific safety planning are just a few of the other ways safety is integrated into our work at GPRS.
Our system goes beyond “one and done.” In addition to the initial onboard training each team member receives at our world-class training facility, ongoing field mentorship and advanced training classes are provided to ensure that everyone is up to date on the latest in GPR methods and technology. We constantly work not only to improve our employee’s knowledge and technique, but to provide them with the most effective tools and equipment so that they can perform their best work.
Problem Solving Mindset
Each project is a “puzzle” in which subsurface elements must be accurately and efficiently identified. Our training programs help to develop and foster this analytical mindset, creating team members highly adept at solving the mysteries of which subsurface elements exist on each project.
Commitment to the Customer
In everything we do, GPRS strives to put our customer’s needs first. It is our duty to provide you with the answers necessary in order to execute your project safely and effectively. We work with our customers to ensure that all of their needs have been met, and to continue to provide the best possible GPR services in the industry.
These are just a few of the unique qualities which set our team members above the rest. We consider the needs of our employees as individuals- not just as a whole. While satisfying our customers is essential to business, we would not be able to accomplish this if we did not put our employees first. Scheduling is done so as to evenly distribute the work load, ensuring that our team members are able to perform to the best of their abilities without getting burnt out. Each employee is pushed to achieve the career growth they are seeking. We offer continual training and support, and emphasize the importance of community. When you choose GPRS you are choosing nearly two decades of commitment to being the best in the industry, commitment to our employees, and commitment to our customers.
