People

A long time ago Peter Kiewit set an expectation that remains the foundation of our success: people are our greatest asset. We recognize that the talents and efforts of the men and women we employ are the greatest differentiator between us and our competitors. Every other contractor in the business could realistically have the same tools, technologies and resources as Kiewit. It’s our people that give us the greatest competitive advantage.

To ensure our people have what they need to be the best in the business, to ensure employees get the most out of their career here, and to help develop our industry’s future workforce, we:

  • Incorporate safety into our daily work to ensure Nobody Gets Hurt;
  • Offer some of the industry’s best training and development opportunities and promote from within;
  • Provide a competitive compensation and benefits package;
  • Coordinate outreach efforts to help introduce a future workforce to meaningful and lifelong opportunities in the construction and engineering industry

It is no secret that a growing population and the condition of our world’s current infrastructure network will require major investments in the form of construction and engineering projects, and organizations like ours will be tasked with bringing them to life. We believe that by investing in the development of our current and future workforce, our industry will be up to the challenge.

Environmental Stewardship

At Kiewit we manage and minimize environmental impacts at all of our operations. Environmental stewardship is an important part of our core values and guiding principles. We hold ourselves accountable for strict regulatory compliance along with continuous improvements to our environmental performance. We are not alone in our commitments — we know that our clients want to meet their own environmental targets and obligations and we work closely with them to make sure we are aligned.

Our environmental efforts are focused on environmentally responsible business practices, regulatory compliance and participating in environmentally-focused and renewable projects.

Community

As a contractor, we are proud to build work that improves people’s lives. Our clients trust us to help them deliver complex construction and engineering projects that will ultimately provide the public with clean water, efficient power, improved transportation, cutting-edge health and education facilities, and so much more. Our project and office employees also share their time, talent and resources through community outreach efforts. We take pride in knowing that millions of people across the U.S., Canada and Mexico have and will continue to benefit from the hard work and contributions of our employees.

As we build, we are committed to being partners of the community by:

  • Proactively identifying opportunities to hire local, small, disadvantaged, women, veteran or minority-owned businesses as our suppliers and subcontractors
  • Communicating with surrounding businesses and communities to ensure they are aware of construction activities and their potential impact
  • Hiring a craft workforce that is representative of the local community
  • Identifying meaningful opportunities to give back to the communities in which we live and work through charitable outreach
