Namaste with the pups. 🐶 Last week Black & Veatch hosted Puppy Yoga at our WHQ in partnership with Great Plains SPCA to help our team focus on their physical and mental health. Employee Owners were also given the opportunity to adopt a pet and give them a furever home!! ♥

    Black and Veatch has the same challenges that I am sure many other large companies must continually strive to overcome and sometimes things move slow, or at least not as quickly as one would like. B&V has made progress, but needs to keep striving to push decision making lower in the organization to allow us to be more nimble and responsive. Even with a few challenges associated with working in a large organization, the overall benefits of a large organization far exceed any drawbacks. It is a luxury (and huge competitive advantage) to have the resources and experts internally to solve almost any problem that may come up on a project.
