Work-Life Balance & Continuing Education

When we are not working together, we get out of the office and hike, bike, climb, swim, skate, hang-glide, camp, fish, hunt, run, walk, and play! At Barber-Nichols, we like to promote a healthy work-life balance and continued learning. Whether you want to get a degree, certificate, or learn more from co-workers, we support individual training as well as monthly “Lunch-N-Learns” (we provide lunch). We have so many opportunities for you to learn and grow your career here. And have fun!

Employee Testimonial -Buki

“Barber-Nichols has been a huge highlight in my career and professional growth. The BN team walks the fine line of an outstanding “people-first” culture while optimizing the effectiveness of each team member (through professional development and dynamic roles and responsibilities); this drives continual achievement of long and short-term organizational goals. “Work-life balance” isn’t just a buzz phrase within our team, it’s a practice that is fostered and leads to improved performance personally, professionally, and organizationally. We are a group of problem solvers at every level, unconventional thinking and ownership are encouraged, which allows for creative solutions to unique problems.”

Employee Testimonial -Ka

It is an amazing feeling to be able to go to work every morning knowing that I will be working on some of the most highly engineered, technologically advanced, and precision machined products with a team of some of the most brilliant and good-hearted folks. It is rare to find a company that puts up the numbers, takes great care of its customers, and still prioritizes its employees and the community. I am very fortunate and proud to be a part of the BN family. ­

Employee Testimonial -Debra

“So fortunate to work here for 35 years. BN is a family! The founders were wise to the importance of creating a wonderful company culture. This insight from 50 years ago was ahead of its time and key to why we’ve attracted such great talent and why many have stayed for so long. It’s a wonderful experience to have professional relationships with coworkers and customers that last decades. Kudos to the leadership who encouraged employees to embrace growth and change.”
