We strive to ensure that our corporate staff and project teams represent the communities in which we live, work, and play. At the end of the day, itâ€™s the Power of People who make all the difference.
Building a Culture of Inclusion
Great ideas can change the world and we know the next great idea can come from anywhere. ÒùÐ¦½ºþâ€™s commitment to diversity enables us to better meet the ever-changing needs of our clients by offering a variety of viewpoints, experiences, and development opportunities.
As one of ÒùÐ¦½ºþâ€™s core values, our commitment to diversity and inclusion begins at the highest level of our corporate leadership team and is pervasive throughout the entire company. We fosterÂ an environment where employees are encouraged to share ideas openly to help reach their potential, knowing they have the full support of managers and peers.
Rewarding Career Opportunities
ÒùÐ¦½ºþâ€™s position as a leader in the construction industry is due in large part to our ability to develop and mobilize diverse, high-performing project teams. To ensure long-term success of our company, we seek out hard-working employees who are eager to provide innovative solutions. Our employees’ unique traits make us stronger.
In addition to providing a variety of opportunities for recent graduates and experienced professionals, we team with universities and high schools to provide internship opportunities for diverse students who have an interest in construction careers.
Commitment to Supplier Diversity
ÒùÐ¦½ºþâ€™s approach to supplier diversity and minority participation goes far beyond regulatory requirements. We integrate with the community in order to make a lasting economic difference that endures long after ribbon cutting. Actively seeking out and partnering with qualified small, minority, and women-owned businesses helps fuel sustainable economic growth that results in stronger, more prosperous communities. This dramatically improves the quality of life for our employees, customers, business partners, and neighbors.
To demonstrate this commitment, we offer opportunities for subcontractors and suppliers of all sizes. In addition to our dedicated corporate diversity committee, ÒùÐ¦½ºþ is an active member of several regional business associations that promote development and utilization of small, minority, and women-owned businesses. ÒùÐ¦½ºþ also regularly hosts corporate and project-specific outreach events designed to maximize awareness and increase diverse business participation.
At ÒùÐ¦½ºþ, the long-term success of our diversity and inclusion program is closely linked to the long-term success of our diverse business partners. To help support sustainable growth among these firms, ÒùÐ¦½ºþ engages in peer-to-peer and mentor-protÃ©gÃ© programs focused on capacity building, sharing of knowledge and resources, and establishing mutually beneficial strategic partnerships.
