100% Employee Owned.
Our team is proud to be 100% employee owned through an Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP). An ESOP is a qualified retirement plan designed to give associates beneficial ownership in the company.
The ESOP allows shared governance, shared responsibility, and shared rewards; it fits with our entrepreneurial spirit and empowered style. For our clients, that means we’re deeply invested in every project because our success is tied to yours.
We don’t train leaders—we develop them. We continually strive to find each associate’s strengths and promote those through customized development courses and core skills training. We empower our associates to improve performance by sharpening their leadership skills, staying up-to-date on the latest trends and methods in construction jobs, and training everyone to deliver the best building experience.
Achieving health and wellness starts with the right blueprint. The MGC Well-being team educates and inspires us to achieve wellness and balance of body, mind, and spirit to remain an energetic and top-performing company. You’ll find us walking, running, jumping, lifting, and climbing in our fitness center, at company wellness events, or corporate challenge games. We challenge and encourage each other, and have a ton of fun while doing it. It’s tough NOT to live a healthy lifestyle at McCownGordon, which is why we’re recognized as one of Kansas City’s Healthiest Employers.
We’re passionate about giving back to our community. MGC Cares encourages just that. An internal program made up of associates who have volunteered to plan and implement the company’s participation in community activities, charitable fundraising and corporate events. It’s important to work hard, but having fun is part of it. MGC Cares plans team-building events, including barbecues on our rooftop patio, outings to professional sports events, Friday afternoon bowling competitions, a kickball tournament, and much more. And that’s on top of our annual holiday party and summer picnic.
Diversity + Equity + Inclusion
McCownGordon is committed to respect and inclusion for all. To deliver the best client experience, we strive to build a team of professionals with diverse perspectives and varying life experiences that reflect our communities.
Our Diversity + Inclusion committee focuses on three main pillars: understand, include, and inspire. We believe an inclusive and diverse workforce drives creativity and innovation, inspires leadership, and creates a culturally varied workplace.
By actively working to improve the representation of women and minorities, we’ve seen increased engagement and a focus on taking ownership AND giving back. We regularly work within our community to create an awareness of the value of inclusion and diversity.
We’re committed to growing and developing smart leaders—both professionally and personally.
Our talent development team aligns associate training and development efforts with the company’s vision, goals, and objectives by encouraging associates to achieve personal and professional milestones through leadership and certification programs. Whether it’s bi-monthly training or a specialized course, we provide continuous learning opportunities. As part of MGC University, our talent development program helps associates achieve Continuing Education Credits (CEUs) to assist in maintaining certifications.
We offer a wide variety of paid internship opportunities for students seeking a career in the construction industry, as well as within our support services areas, like information technology, marketing, virtual design and construction (VDC) and safety.
Our interns enjoy a fun-filled, educational program working side-by-side with our team and walk away with a deeper understanding of their career options. If you’re interested in an internship with one of the region’s leading construction managers, apply for an internship with us.
Look for us on campus.
