Life at Phoenix
Phoenix Construction and all of its subsidiaries create what we call the Phoenix Group. As a family owned company, many of our family values percolate down into our day to day operations. We routinely convene our architects with our project managers and field staff for birthday celebrations, personal milestone celebrations, Lend a Hand projects (the Group's charitable vehicle) and often just for fun. We work closely with the Cayman Islands Employee Assistance Program, and promote counseling where we see the need, offer support for staff who wish to attend the many Chamber of Commerce training programs, and encourage and indeed participate in the many local mentoring and leadership programs offered throughout the year.
It all adds up to a forward-thinking group that cares about the health and welfare of its people. We are very loyal to our employees and are gratified to see that this is returned in kind.
