New Employee Referral Program

McHugh recognizes the importance of attracting and retaining high-quality employees. In order to encourage and reward our employees for referring top quality prospects to help the company grow and expand, McHugh will offer a Referral Bonus.

The program details can be found under Human Resources.

Use of Company Vehicles

Three of McHugh's core values are safety, respect, and integrity. These values apply not only to our business dealings with clients, subcontractors, and each other but to the public in general. Our code of conduct instructs employees to regularly ask ourselves some simple questions - Are my actions legal? Is this in the best interest of McHugh? Am I being honest and responsive? How would this look in the media? - And to keep in mind that failure to comply with the company's code of conduct can have serious consequences including potential fines, criminal liability for the company, and potential damage to McHugh's reputation.

On September 27 at approximately 4:45 PM, our human resources department received a call reporting that a company vehicle - a white pickup truck with the McHugh logo - was speeding northbound on I-57 near Champaign at over 100 miles per hour.

From time to time, we receive reports from the general public about a company vehicle speeding, driving aggressively, weaving, and/or tailgating. We would like to remind those who drive a company vehicle - logoed or not - that you have been given a privilege. As stated in the company vehicle policy: The conditions of that privilege are that you must obey all motor vehicle laws, maintain the vehicle properly at all times and follow the rules and procedures of this policy. This privilege can, and will, be taken away if you fail to abide by the laws and rules of the road.

If you are unfamiliar with McHugh's auto policy or with our code of conduct, please contact Natalie Pedraza at 312-821-0344.

Word of the Day

Be Prepared to Stay Safe and Healthy This Winter

Winter storms and cold temperatures can be hazardous, but if you plan ahead, you can stay safe and healthy. Prepare your home and cars. Prepare for power outages and outdoor activity. Check on the older adults. Although winter comes as no surprise, many of us are not ready for its arrival. If you are prepared for the hazards of winter, you will be more likely to stay safe and healthy when temperatures start to fall. 


Six Reasons You Can't Out-Exercise An Unhealthy Diet.

Sure, you could eat whatever you wanted in high school and stay thin as a rail. But unfortunately, you're not 17 anymore, and even if you work out around the clock, you can't transform your body if you constantly give into cravings, high-fat foods and sweet treats. The truth is, flat abs are made in the kitchen, and no amount of cardio or crunches can sculpt a sleek physique if you maintain an unhealthy diet. 


20 Things Successful People Refuse To Do

1. They don't define success in a monetary term.
They see money as something that brings them comfort and opens doors of opportunities. They realize that money can't buy them happiness.
