Dorn Homes has been honored this year by the Prescott Chamber of Commerce as the Best Mid-Size Company to work for in 2015! The Prescott Chamber honored companies who excelled in various areas in the this past week at their Healthy Prescott Business Awards during their annual meeting.
What makes Dorn Homes a great company to work for?
At Dorn Homes we work hard, and play hard. Our team is made up of an amazing group of people that are exceptionally good at what they do, and love doing it. Every year everyone in the entire company gathers together to develop our strategic objectives for the year, as well as honor the successes that we have accomplished over the past year. Every team member works together to achieve a common mission, and understands their part in the company’s vision leading to an engaged and motivated team.
We work hard to achieve our goals every day, and celebrate our achievements at monthly happy hours in downtown Prescott’s famous Whiskey Row.
It doesn’t stop at the office either. Dorn Homes encourages personal, as well as professional, development. We offer free books on self-help, organization, and sales improvement. Many of our team members passionately give back to the community. Dorn Homes matches contributions to charities that employees support, plus team members often reach out to help each other’s causes. Some of the charities that the team supports are the Komen Foundation, Race for the Cure, Horses with Heart, Mom’s Closet, the Cottonwood Mission, Feed My Starving Children, and St. Vincent de Paul. Dorn Homes is currently working with Homes for Our Troops to build a home (mortgage-free) for a disabled veteran.
Every year the company hosts a Christmas party. In 2014 we celebrated at The Palace in downtown Prescott. We had costume contests for ugliest Christmas sweater, and “most-spirited” holiday costume! At the beginning of 2015 we had our annual Fun Day. You may have seen us around town that day… our entire team participated in a citywide scavenger hunt (in costumes)! Our team spent the day completing “missions” around town. These missions included singing for our lunch, treating children to ice cream, posing for photos at landmarks, and giving to others in the community.
