Tetra Tech’s foundation is our people. Our industry-leading engineers, scientists, and technical specialists create innovative solutions for our clients’ most complex challenges. We invest in our teams by building a diverse workforce, fostering employee engagement, and providing learning and development opportunities at every stage of our employees’ careers. We have one of the lowest employee turnover rates in our industry at just nine percent in 2022.
All employees can access training, technical exchange, and skill development through our Tetra Tech Academy Learning and Development Program and customized Learning Management System (LMS), providing professional development opportunities throughout our employees’ careers.
We also offer a range of professional development programs through our Leadership Academy, Project Management (PM) training, and Fearless Entrepreneur program.
Diversity Equity and Inclusion
We believe a diverse workforce brings a unique set of perspectives, experiences, and ideas that benefit our teams and our clients. Our Diversity, Equity & Inclusion (DEI) Program is holistic and interconnected with our Wellness Program and Health & Safety Program, as well as core functions of the Company such as recruiting, business practices, and operations.
Health and Wellness
Tetra Tech recognizes the importance of our employees’ mental and physical health in the office, in the field, and in their personal lives. We believe a healthy employee community is a thriving employee community.
Our corporate Wellness Program provides global resources to support employees and their families to live healthy, balanced lives at work and at home. We enable our employees and their families to connect and share healthy habits and physical fitness activities through our global Healthy Life Community and our annual Healthy Life Challenge.
Health and Safety
Tetra Tech is committed to providing a healthy and safe environment for all our employees and implementing best practices that comply with local regulatory requirements. We have robust and comprehensive health and safety programs, injury prevention programs, training, and hazard assessment tools. We track safety metrics for Lost Workday Incident Rate (LWDIR) and Total Recordable Incident Rate (TRIR). In 2022 our enterprise-wide rate for LWDIR was 0.06, which is 80 percent better than industry average. Our 2022 enterprise-wide rate for TRIR was 0.23, which is 75 percent better than industry average.
Our incident metrics inform our operations around the world to ensure all employees’ health and safety needs are being met.
Total Recordable Incident Rate (TRIR)
In 2022 our enterprise-wide TRIR was 0.23, 75 percent better than industry average.
Lost Workday Incident Rate (LWDIR)
Our employees lead our giving and volunteering efforts to preserve, strengthen, and support their local communities—from supporting food kitchens and holiday donation drives to river clean-ups and youth activities. We recognize those efforts in our annual Excellence & Achievement Award for Community Service, presented to those employees who have excelled in supporting their communities and people in need.
Tetra Tech partners annually with a charity or global organization to support communities in need around the world. In 2022 we partnered with Engineers Without Borders USA to bring safe and clean water to families in Eastern Uganda.
Our award-winning Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) Program aims to promote and increase engagement in STEM subjects. Since its inception, the program has reached more than 20,400 people and is helping to grow the next generation of innovators and problem solvers.
