Skilled Labor ResourcesScaling labor resources to match project needs

Our highly mobile workforce streamlines efficiencies 

High Country has the unique capacity to swiftly move our workforce throughout the country to support electrical construction projects of nearly any magnitude. Our cohesive traveling crews are familiar working together, resulting in significant project efficiencies. The continuity they share with management and solid client relationships they maintain, enable us to expertly construct projects large or small. Additionally, as a subsidiary of MYR Group, High Country can tap into the resources and expertise of thousands of employees throughout the United States. We often collaborate sharing expertise, insights, and lessons learned on projects and scale personnel resources as needed. 

Our project teams consist of skilled labor resources that have extensive training and experience working in their field of expertise. Our successful performance on projects allows us to provide similar best practices, knowledge of local/regional conditions and topography, and cohesive teams who have worked together on past projects. These valuable attributes translate to exceptional quality, efficiency, communication, and safety. 

At High Country, our workforce is at the center of all we do – we are one cohesive team. We value diversity because it makes us stronger, and we promote a safe workplace where all team members are valued and given the appropriate tools and training to be successful. 

Investing in our future workforce  

High Country is a proud signatory contractor to the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) nationwide. We actively support and enjoy a strong relationship with the unions and have always been able to count on them for highly skilled workers to add to our own labor pool. Even during labor shortages, with their help, we constantly demonstrate our capacity to meet labor demands quickly. 

We believe in growing and supporting our future workforce. High Country operates a paid internship program supporting students in careers from accounting to field operations. Additionally, we partner with local unions and their Joint Apprenticeship and Training Committees (JATC), actively participating on JATC committees and in labor negotiations nationwide. 

Our recruitment efforts, extend to high school and college students, military personnel, and rural populations. Because the availability of skilled labor is so critical to our industry, we value and continuously support the future workforce of our electrical construction industry.
