You promote education, awareness, and training that positively impacts your community, company, and employees.

You work hard to attract diverse candidates and look for ways to remove barriers that hold them back. You are known for your hiring practices, including compensating all employees at fair market value regardless of gender, race, religion, or ethnicity.
Workplace Culture Champion
You are known for your respectful, safe, and inclusive workplace culture, which is the pride of your management and employee team. You ensure the health, safety, and well-being of everyone on the Worksite by recognizing that safety protection goes beyond PPE, and encouraging each employee to recognize their role in a safe and productive worksite culture.
