Culture of Care – DE&I Commitment
Weifield Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) Statement
Because People are our #1 value in our PACT, at Weifield, it is important to us that every employee feels valued, welcomed, included, and safe when they come to work. To create the desired impact, Weifield aligns itself under the Associated General Contractors of America (AGC) ‘Culture of CARE’ program initiative that we support as part of our existing company practices. AGC’s Culture of CARE program was designed to help construction companies reach their full potential by building a culture that is diverse, safe, welcoming, and inclusive; therefore, Weifield follows the core principles of this program which include:
COMMIT – To hire and pay based on skill and experience regardless of ability, age, ethnicity, gender identity, nationality, race, religion, sex, or sexual orientation.
ATTRACT – To attract prospective employees by creating inclusive workspaces that are free from harassment, hazing, and bullying.
RETAIN – To retain high-performing employees by identifying and removing barriers to employment.
EMPOWER – To empower every employee to promote a culture of diversity and inclusion.
We believe the collective sum of our employees’ individual differences, traits, skills, backgrounds and experiences is our strength. By embracing a Culture of CARE, we will retain top talent, improve employee productivity and job satisfaction, increase our ability to innovate, reach new customer bases, and create a safer workplace.
Ongoing Communication and Training
As part of this program, Weifield provides continual communication and training to our office and field employees on these principles. Each of our employees is also required to sign a Culture of Care personal pledge commitment in support of this initiative and our culture – which reinforces our position that:
- Every individual has the right to a work environment that is free from harassment, hazing, and bullying
- We will take action to ensure every employee at our company has the opportunity to reach their full potential by building a culture that is diverse, safe, welcoming, and inclusive
By following these best practices, Weifield ensures we foster a culture of belonging and contribute to our industry’s collective diversity, equity, and inclusiveness outcomes, for all.
