Our 2022-2025 strategic plan is a commitment to our people. The theme – One Russell – unites and aligns our three locations focusing on five main objectives: Communicate with Purpose, Be a Part of Something Bigger, We Are Russell, Lead with Excellence, and Build the Dream Team

Establish a framework for consistent internal communication laterally, bottom-up, and top-down.

Become more uniform in our workflows to support scalability and profitable growth.

Grow opportunities between real estate and construction by breaking down invisible walls and establishing our development footprint in our new geographic locations.

Cultivate and drive Russell leadership competencies through increased learning, coaching, and development.

Build upon our leading culture to create opportunities for new hires and current team members. 

collaborative & fun office spaces.

At Russell, we strive to be a fun workplace with a collaborative
work environment.  We want to be a place where our employees love coming to work everyday.

Russell offers an open office environment where all employee
have open work spaces and no doors.  This allows employees to more easily work as a team.

work hard. play hard.
that's our motto

Since its inception in 1983, Russell has been committed to cultivating a social and professional culture in which all employees can worklearn, interact and develop.  

In order to retain the best and brightest employees, we have created a positive and challenging work environment that provides opportunities for career advancement for all levels of employees. 

Did we mention we like to have fun?

Universal Paid Time Off.

As a company dedicated to providing a flexible work environment that fosters trust, Russell offers a Universal Paid Time Off (PTO) policy where employees take time off when they need it; it’s not earned and it’s not accrued. This policy requires employees to be empowered to manage their own schedules, while being accountable for their individual workloads.  

Lasting Community Impact.

Community is among our core values and this notion runs deep within the organization.  The company is well-connected across a variety of community organizations and is encouraged by the executive leadership to give of themselves in whatever capacity they are able.

Russell had donated more than $1 Million to local non-profit and community service agencies across the Quad Cities.  With offices in St. Louis and Kansas City, we look forward to expanding out community focused mindset into these markets!
