Creating a culture of inclusion
Business Resource Groups (BRGs) began at Bechtel as informal support groups and social networks focused on a common affinity, but gaining broader participation and reach over time, today’s BRGs have evolved into corporate entities that provide strategic support to the enterprise. Integrated into our global D&I strategy, BRGs are more important than ever to understanding the needs of our changing customer base, fostering innovation through a diverse workforce, and creating an inclusive culture.
Not only do BRGs provide individuals the opportunity to build professional relationships, expand personal networks, develop leadership skills, and feel a sense of belonging, but they can also help Bechtel attract diverse talent, upskill its workforce, and achieve its enterprise priorities.
Employers have the opportunity to recognize and honor the service of veterans and the military to their country by demonstrating a commitment to supporting them. As veterans return to civilian life from military service, they are a great source of talent for private sector employers. They bring distinctive networks, capabilities, and valuable skills developed through real-world, high pressure experience, which are unfortunately overlooked or underutilized.
NextGen is focused on supporting the orientation, development, retention, and empowerment of employees as they begin and build their careers with Bechtel. This is primarily done though professional development, professional networking, orientation, and stewardship activities.
