Our approach

A Skill-Based Approach Promoting equity and equal opportunities within the construction industry is a cornerstone of our mission. We advocate for a skill-based approach that indexes work and talent based on skills rather than traditional hierarchies. By implementing this approach, organizations can create fair and transparent career progression paths, where individuals from all backgrounds have the opportunity to showcase their abilities and contribute meaningfully. We firmly believe in providing a level playing field for talent, enabling them to thrive and reach their full potential.
We are committed to measuring our impact in promoting diversity and inclusion within the construction industry. To assess the effectiveness of our initiatives, we regularly seek feedback from partners and stakeholders. This feedback helps us fine-tune our strategies and ensure that we are making meaningful progress. Additionally, we track diversity metrics across our workforce and supply chain, including hiring rates, retention rates, and supplier diversity.

Through surveys and focus groups, we actively engage with underrepresented groups in the construction industry, gathering insights to improve their experiences and create a more inclusive environment.
