Case Study

How recruiting and employment policy development helped Hardman Construction grow.

From its humble roots in Ludington, Michigan, Hardman Construction has become a leader in specialty foundations in construction. The Hardman team successfully manages high profile projects with complex scopes of work around the Midwest, quietly building a project portfolio to rival that of any specialty contractor. When it comes to its greatest competitive advantage – its team – Hardman has relied on EctoHR for consulting help since 2011.

Hardman Construction’s goal was to find an HR partner that would build upon its solid foundation while supporting its hiring, professional development efforts, diversity initiatives, and overall goal of being the employer of choice within the industry and community. While many of the challenges the Hardman team faces are similar to those of other specialty contractors, Hardman’s culture and approach is a truly unique blend of “old school” work ethic and trust combined with the latest technology and cutting-edge approach to putting work in place. EctoHR’s team has adapted its style to align with Hardman’s values and culture and has become a key part of Hardman Construction’s HR Team.
