Office Hours with Jason Beach

January 6th, 2020 by Tom Simmons


It’s office hours! We ask HRP’s Regional Managers quick questions, they give us quick answers (mostly). Today we talk to Jason Beach, Regional Manager for HRP’s Connecticut offices.


TS:         

What’s on tap for you and the office?

JB:         

I plan to engage more with my colleagues and clients on a daily basis in 2020 and beyond. I am often asked what makes HRP such a great place to work, and the consistent answer is “the people!” HRP is a very collegial place to work, and I find great satisfaction in collaborating with my colleagues and clients. Our people define who we are and they are a lot of fun to work with.

On the office front, we are very excited about the upcoming renovations to our Farmington headquarters, which will give our home a much-needed modernization. Additionally, we are very close to finishing our work at an old mill building loft in Derby, which we are redeveloping into an office space for our current Stratford team. The Derby office that is being developed is located in a really cool area above a micro-brewery and within walking distance to some nice eateries and fishing, so having that on tap in 2020 is really exciting.

TS:         

What’s upcoming that you’re most excited about?

JB:         

We are looking at sustained growth potential in 2020 and beyond. We are taking on some huge new opportunities and plan to promote and hire for several important positions. I am excited about the likely continued growth of our environmental, health and safety consulting practice. This practice is a focal point for our growth strategy headed into 2020 and beyond. The plan is to get our EH&S practice on par with the due diligence remediation practice from a revenue stand point within the Connecticut offices.

TS:         

What’s come up on your radar in the recent past that you will be keeping an eye on in the near future?

JB:         

You can’t underestimate the value of being responsive to our clients. I know that sounds a bit goofy, cliché and obvious, but I see firsthand every day how important it is. It’s very difficult, but also so simple. If we are continually thinking and acting on ways to be responsive, understand our clients, and deliver to meet their needs, then I know we will realize sustained growth. The theory is simple but it’s tough to do it every day with all of the regular distractions we all face. That said, every day I work here I feel it more and more how important it is to be client-facing and responsive and how that differentiates us from the competition.

TS:         

Give me one word that describes your take on what’s happening in Connecticut:

JB:         

GROWTH!

TS:        

Limit 1 employee, who in your office do you want to give a shout out to and why

JB:       

David Webster

TS:         

Dave is an EH&S Project Scientist in Farmington, right?

JB:         

Yep. He’s got a quietly confident disposition that I feel defines the company mission statement to a T. He’s responsive, nimble, and value added.
