Andersen Construction (USA) wanted more powerful HRMS to automate their HR tasks - so they switched to Lanteria

Company

Andersen Construction Company was founded in Portland, Oregon in 1950, specializing in industrial and retail construction. Since then, Andersen has grown to be the largest family-owned construction manager-general contractor in the Pacific Northwest. As a “Builder of Choice” for clients, Andersen delivers public and private projects for varying industries like retail, hi-tech, education, health care, office, housing, hotel, and structured parking. Andersen is also a national leader in mass and cross-laminated timber construction.

The most critical requirement for Andersen’s new HRIS online platform was to provide a robust Learning Management System (LMS) for engaging employees to support skill and career development, along with maintaining state and federal compliance certifications for the construction industry. Other desired features included interactive employee Performance management, including annual performance reviews, ongoing check-ins, 360 reviews from all participating parties and personal feedback (Accolades).
