Our people are the foundation for our success. We focus on providing our employees with an environment where they can thrive and cultivate long-lasting relationships. Our people are our greatest asset and constantly embody “The Perlo Way”.

The Perlo Way

We work hard, we take care of our people, and we always do what’s right.

These are the words that guide us. Plain and simple, it’s how we do business.

Perlo Practices

Do what's right.

Solutions show up as problems.

Everyone empties the trash.

To be heard, you have to say something.

Success isn't a straight path.

Stay hungry.

Learn by listening.

Find the common ground.

Finish strong.

Make it fun.
