Advancing Inclusion and Diversity

Fostering a Safe and Inclusive Environment

Our emphasis on teamwork, reinforced by our collaborative Building Forward® approach, is based on respect for people and fosters engagement across all levels of our organization and throughout our jobsites. This philosophy is at the core of who we are, and we are committed to continuously strengthening our efforts to make Robins & Morton a more inclusive and diverse organization. Our collaborative culture thrives because we appreciate the value and contribution of every individual and celebrate the synchronicity of the whole.

Robins & Morton attracts and develops a diverse workforce through our active participation in industry outreach efforts in addition to our support programs that provide education, mentorship and professional development. We recognize that this is a journey forward and we are committed to strengthening our efforts to make Robins & Morton a more inclusive and diverse organization.

Expanding Diversity Through Partnerships

Our diversity, inclusion and leadership development efforts extend to partnerships with trade contractors and vendors, including outreach to, and support of, small, women, veteran, or minority-owned business enterprises. We are actively involved with the Small Business Administration (SBA) and, for years, have participated in its programs, including the Mentor Protégé Partnership Program. Through the Mentor Protégé Partnership and similar programs, we can help women-, veteran- or minority-owned small business enterprises expand their footprint through meaningful partnerships in the construction industry.

Recruitment and Career Advancement Opportunities

Through our participation in industry outreach programs, support for education and our internal training, mentorship and development programs, we’re helping attract and develop a diverse workforce.

Internally, we provide a range of traditional and nontraditional career advancement programs, with a strong emphasis on mentorship. We have defined career paths with a Learning and Career Development Specialist providing one-on-one support to our team members.

Our Rocky McMichen Field Leadership Program is a combination of classroom and hands-on mentorship for craft-level team members who desire to move into management roles. The Barbara Wilson Mentorship Program supports administrative team members who want to transition into entry-level field management roles. Both programs have a proven record of further increasing diversity in our operations.

Our college recruitment efforts are reaching beyond the traditional construction management programs to attract a broader range of potential new hires, and we’re increasing our visibility at HBCUs, as well as other institutions that serve diverse student bodies. We’re also expanding our mid-career and veteran recruitment efforts to recognize experience and skills that can transfer to construction management.

To increase awareness of opportunities in construction, we support outreach programs at the primary and secondary school levels, including ACE Mentor Program activities and Auburn University’s Construction Management Academy for Young Women and other programs. We support our team members’ involvement in the National Association of Women in Construction and other organizations and events advancing diversity in our industry.

Affording Equal Opportunity to All

As an Equal Opportunity Employer, we are committed to affording equal opportunity to all, based upon job-relevant performance, experience and accomplishments. We will not make hiring decisions based on race, color, ethnicity, religion, sex (including pregnancy, childbirth or related medical conditions), sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin or ancestry, age, genetic information, marital status, disability (physical or mental), or protected veteran status, or any other characteristic protected by law. We will provide reasonable accommodations to individuals with disabilities. We apply the same standards to our selection of trade contractors and vendors.

We have zero tolerance for any form of harassment or discrimination, and we expect the same of our trade contractors and vendors. This is stressed to everyone in the company and to everyone on our jobsites. We also have a confidential, toll-free hotline to report any behavior counter to our policies, values or the law.
