Our commitment to locally-based minority / disadvantaged / certifed business enterprises is part of Skanska’s successful history as an urban builder throughout the U.S. We are recognized leaders in the mission to identify local, small and disadvantaged businesses and offer them assistance, business training and every opportunity for participation and success on our projects.
At Skanska, we recognize the benefits of local employment, apprenticeship programs, internships, ACE mentoring and related strategies to add workforce opportunities to the local markets where we build projects. Our approach not only brings immediate value to our projects, but brings long-lasting benefits to the local workforce.
For Skanska, committing to a client means committing to their community. We understand that a truly successful project is one that goes beyond simply awarding contracts. We seek to build relationships that positively impact local individuals, communities and businesses for years to come.
These commitments are made by every one of our project team members, and supported by our Diversity Director, Renee Jones.
