Together we take pride in advancing water resources for future generations
At West Yost we actively provide opportunities for growth. We support the health and wellbeing of each team member. Team-led initiatives provide connection and a means to have input into our culture. Through these examples, team members have gained tools, ideas, and access to wellness initiatives.
Diversity Equity and Inclusion
The DEI is a diverse group of team members in varying professions and stages of their careers. Their focus is both internally and externally on how we, as West Yost, support our communities and profession in a manner that promotes and strengthens diversity, equity, and inclusion.
Our active Young Professionals group provides networking and professional development opportunities for those of us starting our careers. There are both at work and after work activities, depending on the YP’s preference.
Wellness Working Group
The members of this group bring perspectives and gather insights to reinvest into our team. The team gathers to assess, plan, promote, and implement West Yost’s robust wellness program and activities. We look forward to Active April, where we challenge each other to walk daily, and to upcoming fundraisers with organizations like Feeding America, where together we provided over 40,000 meals in a single month.
West Yost was founded by Bruce West and Jim Yost. This video is a tribute to celebrate their dream of creating a company founded on a “culture of goodness.” Friends before their careers launched, they met at the University of California, Davis while completing their engineering undergraduate studies. Their founding objective was deeply rooted in providing high-quality work, superior client service, and technical expertise. Annually, we gather for our All Staff and Duck Dinner social event in celebration of West Yost.
