Think Ahead »
We know our company makes an impact — and it’s our job to make sure it’s a positive one. We work to safely and responsibly build out the electric infrastructure that fuels people’s daily activities, while increasing opportunities for our employees, their families, and those in our communities.
Committed to Building Better
Our ESG (Environmental, Social, Governance) focus helps to tell our story of responsibility and sustainability, and the many initiatives supporting our ESG emphasis drive our continuous improvement.
Both internally and externally, we are committed to building better. This means embracing our responsibility as an employer and member of the community to provide resources that encourage our employees, our suppliers, and our communities to have better conversations, establish stronger partnerships, inspire brighter futures, and create more opportunities.
We are thankful to live and work in our communities, and we strive to be the best neighbors and citizens possible. As part of the fabric of our communities, we promote supplier diversity, promote an inclusive and collaborative environment, and hire locally. Supporting the communities where we work means giving back through volunteerism and philanthropy. We’re also proud to support local and diverse charitable organizations that build sustainable futures.
Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
The diversity of our employees is a major catalyst for our ongoing success and long-term sustainability as a company. That’s why we are intent on furthering a welcoming and inclusive workplace culture that listens and equally values all of our employees’ unique backgrounds, perspectives, and abilities.
A Fair, Welcoming Culture
Our goal is to build a culture where diversity, equity, and inclusion are fundamental values throughout the workplace environment. This extends beyond our internal practices – hiring, listening sessions, employee conduct training, cultural competency of management – to our suppliers and the communities where we live and work.
In addition to our emphasis on creating a workplace where every employee feels a sense of respect and belonging, we are deliberate in our efforts to work with local and diverse suppliers across our operations, as well as participate in organizations to listen, learn, and enhance our diversity, equity, and inclusion practices.
We continue to expand our partnerships with diverse suppliers locally and build opportunities and advocate for minority- and women-owned businesses.
Extending Our Inclusion Commitment
Our emphasis on diversity, equity, and inclusion extends to the partnerships we develop with local suppliers. We work with diverse subcontractors and suppliers to support our operational needs and the commitments of our utility customers.
Our world belongs to all of us. We are mindful of the impact our work has on the environment, and we take care to protect it through responsible operations practices as well as proactive efforts to reduce our overall footprint. We have joined with our parent company in a goal to reduce greenhouse gasses 25% by 2030. We’ll achieve this by examining our practices across field operations, our fleet, and our facilities.
Our field operations follow all environmental regulations and minimize impacts to the natural environment by following proper procedures for waste handling and disposal, along with other responsible job site practices. Our Safety and Quality function regularly audits environmental practices in the field.
Through GPS systems installed on our fleet vehicles, along with our fleet utilization process and evaluation of fuel usage, we are tracking data with the aim to reduce our overall fleet emissions and optimize vehicle and equipment use across the company.
To identify opportunities for greater energy efficiency and reduced usage, we are reviewing energy consumption at our major facilities.
Doing The Right Thing
Insistence on ethical behavior throughout all levels of our company is essential to creating a culture where all employees feel safe, valued, and free to do their best work.
Empowered For Success
Linetec strives to create workplaces where people feel empowered to bring their full, authentic selves to work. We are a family, and one of our biggest strengths is how we value each member’s unique abilities and perspectives. We welcome diversity and strive to foster an environment where everyone, from any background, can do their best work and thrive.
A welcoming and fair culture is one of our greatest assets, and we hold each and every employee accountable for upholding our values when dealing with others. Our Employee Code of Business Conduct and Ethics sets forth our guidelines for ensuring that we are ethical in our business dealings and respectful of each other. We hold similar expectations for our vendors and subcontractors.
Giving Employees A Voice
We encourage our employees to report any instances of misconduct in the workplace through the Centuri Ethics Helpline. This helpline provides resources and avenues for reporting inappropriate workplace behavior. Each and every report is confidential and reviewed with the utmost sincerity.
