Doing so allows us to continue to be a leader in the construction industry, attract the best talent from all backgrounds to our company, and allow those individuals to bring with them new ideas and innovations that can only enhance our company.

Vendor diversity is also a key factor in helping define how we do business in today’s marketplace. Embracing diversity will help us compete for the best talent, enhance our ability to create new revenue streams, increase our vendor base, win clients and maintain our position as marketplace leaders.
