Meet Our Volunteers

Lending a hand around the world

Our people inspire each other and work together to impact local communities – they are instrumental in bringing to life our company’s vision, values and covenants (VV&Cs) along with the vision of our four Signature Program partners.

For example, we mobilize our volunteers to promote education (especially STEM) and solve tough community projects that include water sustainability, infrastructure sustainment and improved health care. Annually, our employees dedicate more than 17,000 hours to volunteering in communities from Malaysia to Mikomago, Uganda, to London, to South Dakota, we’re making a difference.

With more than 55,000 employees worldwide, our volunteers embrace the opportunities to promote and support science, technology, engineering, and math education (STEM), and use their engineering and construction expertise to improve the world.

Our employees are caring, dedicated ambassadors for the company and displays passion and commitment in communities where we have a presence. Through volunteerism, we bring to life our Vision, Values &Covenants and showcase how values are woven in the projects we build, in the lives we touch, and in the communities we change through Stewardship and acting as a global corporate citizen.

We mobilize our volunteers to promote education and solve tough community problems that include water sustainability, infrastructure sustainment and improved health care.
