Life at HELIX

We work hard and play hard – as a team.


At HELIX, we are dedicated to our clients and we are passionate about providing the highest quality of service to every customer, on every product, for every project – no matter how big or small. We pride ourselves on this commitment to excellence and to make it happen, we know that it takes a team and a diligent effort. We all roll up our sleeves, at every level of the company, and we jump in to support each other along the way.


With that hard work, we also like to have fun! Even our company meetings can get a little silly. We celebrate our successes with impromptu happy hours, mochi ice cream socials, and breakfast potlucks. We connect with coworkers and our families at our annual summer parties and holiday dinners, and we honor clients through appreciation events.


You’ll find the health and well-being of our employees isn’t just a core value at HELIX – it is engrained in our culture. We live it. We breathe it. From local hikes and lunch-time walks, to free on-site fitness classes including yoga and functional training at our headquarters location – we play, we blow off steam, we refresh and recharge, and we help support each other in our work-life balance.


We give back to our community.

At HELIX, we take pride in supporting the communities in which we live and work. We serve as an official pit stop for Bike to Work Day. We plant native oaks and shrubs for the American River Parkway Foundation’s Annual Creek Week event. We help to restore local canyons with San Diego Canyonlands. We clean up beaches for the annual Creek to Bay Cleanup. We make lunches to nourish families at Rady Children’s Hospital through Ronald McDonald House Charities. We lead hands-on workshops to educate and inspire girls in the areas of science and engineering through STEM programs.


HELIX’s Volunteer Committee organizes opportunities for our employees and their families to generously donate their time and talent to local charitable organizations and outreach activities throughout the year. Our philanthropic efforts are rewarded by seeing the difference we make in our local environment and in the lives of others.


We are employee owners.

Bio_General_Employees2HELIX is its people. We know that our employees are pivotal to our success, and in turn the success of our clients. Our many long-standing client relationships demonstrate the individual and collective integrity, knowledge, skill, and customer focus that we apply every day. As employee owners, we understand the value of HELIX is directly related to the work we perform. Through our open-door policy, quarterly all-hands company meetings, and staff programs, employees have the opportunity to be directly involved in the organization and shape how we operate. Through our employee stock ownership plan and bonus program, employees have a direct share in the company’s success.
