One of AMHigley's core values is that PEOPLE is our greatest asset. At the heart of this belief is our unwavering commitment to fostering a culture that celebrates diversity. Beyond constructing buildings, AMHigley is dedicated to building communities. As we observe Construction Inclusion Week 2023, we reflect on our ongoing journey toward creating an inclusive environment and our unwavering commitment to inclusivity.
Fostering a Culture of Inclusivity: At AMHigley, diversity is not just welcomed, it's celebrated. Our mission is to create and continually improve an environment of inclusivity that reflects the diverse communities and clients we serve. Our culture is defined by an unwavering commitment to providing every employee with the opportunity to grow and succeed, while also valuing and celebrating their differences.
The Role of AMHigley's Diversity and Inclusion Committee: Our commitment to diversity and inclusion is deeply ingrained in our operations. We have established an internal Diversity and Inclusion Committee that actively works towards these goals. This committee's objectives include:
- Fair Treatment for All: At AMHigley, we're committed to creating a workplace where everyone is treated fairly and with respect.
- Embracing Diversity: We believe in a workforce that embraces differences in race, ethnicity, religion, gender, age, disability, sexual orientation, social background, national origin, and veteran status. Our active efforts aim to make this a reality in our organization.
- Supporting Subcontractors: We understand the importance of diverse subcontractors and actively help them thrive in the construction industry.
- Fairly Sharing Benefits: We are committed to ensuring that the project's benefits are distributed fairly throughout the entire community we serve.
The Significance of Construction Inclusion Week: Construction Inclusion Week, an industry-wide initiative initially launched in 2021, is a time to reflect on the progress made and the distance still to go. It aims to build awareness of the need for diversity and inclusion in the construction industry, providing content and resources to support this cause.
Construction Inclusion Week is a reminder that inclusivity is not just an option; it's a necessity. Our efforts to champion diversity and inclusion should inspire us all to do our part in creating a more equitable world, both in construction and beyond.
