Buckingham has created a new standard of excellence in our approach to managing our most valuable asset; our people. We seek individuals who are ambitious and find new ways to raise the bar in their areas of expertise. By providing a robust suite of benefits that are unmatched in our industry, we are able to show our team their value to our organization.  And we never stop improving.  We’re constantly changing our strategy and adjusting our plans based on the feedback that we receive. We’ve learned that if you provide your employees with more than what they need, your employees will respond with more than what you expected. At Buckingham, we have created a vibrant work culture that embodies the core values of our mission: customer first, employee focused, outstanding performance & community involvement. Get some insight into the Buckingham standard with what our employees have identified as the top ten reasons to work for Buckingham:

  1. Values – Our Buckingham Vision and Mission statement symbolizes the core of what our employees strive to do every day. By holding each other accountable, we have been able to grow the company, improve customer service for our clients, and attract talent within the community. As a company, we value our customers, employees, performance, and community involvement in everything we do.
  2. Buckingham Foundation – In 2006, Buckingham developed a way to invest back into the neighborhoods where our residents live and our employees work. The Buckingham Foundation invests in organizations through meaningful grants, volunteers thousands of hours to hundreds of nonprofit and civic organizations, and goes beyond the typical philanthropy to open doors that create a positive change.  Buckingham employees work closely with the Foundation through quarterly service projects, our Give Five initiative, and our Volunteer Time Off benefit.
  3. Growth and Professional Development – Buckingham has converted an entire floor in our Corporate Headquarters in Indianapolis into Buckingham University, where subject matter experts offer a robust lineup of instructor led courses ranging from Sales to HVAC and everything in between. Through an online portal, our employees can register and attend online courses that further enhance their professional development. From financial strategy to customer service skills, we are able to provide these resources to our employees, who in turn are able to produce a better product for our clients and customers.
  4. Company Culture – Employees that work for us continually want to be the best and, therefore, work for the best. Buckingham’s culture consists of flexible schedules to accommodate work/life blend, casual dress days to incentivize and promote charitable giving, and stay interviews to keep our finger on the pulse of employee sentiment…just to name a few.
  5. Competitive Compensation – By providing competitive pay for our employees, we can select the best of the best in the industry to work for us. Our company offers a voluntary benefits package with options to elect in health, dental, vision, life, and disability coverage for themselves, or family. We also offer a 401(K) contribution after six months of employment with employer match.
  6. Diversity – We all come from different cultures and backgrounds, but at Buckingham, we are one company striving to be the best in the industry. From our maintenance technicians to our top executives, we are able to cultivate a culture that values each other and our differences, beyond the job title.
  7. Collaborative Spirit – There is always something for you to get involved in, from silent auctions to team pitch ins, and social outings to community service projects. We also get together annually outside of work to give our families a chance to meet each other and see who we spend our time with away from home. And if you enjoy some competitive activities, ask about joining our intermural sports teams including the Pulled Hammies kickball team.
  8. Employee Discounts – Our EAP, employee assistance program, provides anything our employees could need from counseling, assistance with creating a will, travel questions, and more. There are medical discounts provided through Anthem, our medical benefits provider. Being health conscious is a main concern for many of our employees, so by providing a discounted membership to the Irsay Family CityWay YMCA, our Indianapolis employees can work out with the convenience of location to the home office.
  9. Diverse Portfolio – Including student housing, boutique hotels, market rate & affordable residential communities, and mixed-use midrise buildings; we have our fingers, and toes, in it all. By not focusing on one aspect of the real estate sphere, we are able to add value to everything we develop, construct or manage.  We give our employees an opportunity to be exposed to a wide variety of experiences, which helps them thrive in their careers.
  10. Work-life Blend – Life does not only happen after 5pm and on the weekends.  Team leaders recognize this and work with employees when it is needed to work remotely or adjust a schedule. Buckingham also offers paid holidays throughout the year in addition to a generous paid time off package.
