We are excited to share that we are now B Corp Certified! We are proving our commitment to building things bigger than us.
We have always operated with a people-first mindset, a company driven by more than just a balance sheet. Striving to be known for the people behind our hammers, we know our impact in building physical communities. We have built our business around purpose and people.
Becoming a B Corp is serious business. We underwent a rigorous evaluation to ensure we met the B Corp global standards for our people, the planet and the communities in which we work.
Some key highlights that helped us achieve this certification include:
Cultivating Community: Paid volunteer days off, group community initiatives with over 240 hours of employee volunteer service.
Putting People First: We focus on career development programs coupled with well-rounded rewards programs, resulting in high engagement (86% to 94% in the last 3 years) and high retention rates.
Taking Care of the Planet: Beyond building to sustainability standards like LEED, WELL, and Passive House, among others, we aim for over 75% waste diversion on our sites. We are also a Climate Smart Certified business, working to minimize our own environmental impact.
Values in Action: We have an employee-led Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) committee, as well as Mental Health and Volunteer committees that influence our policies, our internal initiatives and our evolution as a B Corp.
We are proud to join the B Corp community. We look forward to continuing to share with you the ways we’re using business as a force for good.
