July is the month that we celebrate the independence of the United States of America. It is also the month that Building Together celebrates the different cultures that make up our company. Like this country, Hensel Phelps is composed of people of many different cultural backgrounds. It’s important that we recognize the unique benefits that this cultural diversity brings to Hensel Phelps. Acknowledging and respecting cultural diversity develops a strong sense of identity and strength within our community. Hensel Phelps understands and appreciates each other’s cultural background and the opportunities for connection it brings to our workplace.
Throughout the month of July, we will celebrate the diverse cultures around our organization through food, language, nationalities and traditions. We will highlight the national flags that represent various countries and parts of the world that our employees consider their original home. In Guam, we will feature a jobsite that showcases over 15 national flags representing employees on the jobsite. We will share cultural dishes and traditions in our employee cultural cuisine cookbook. Hear from employees speaking their native language while explaining the importance of family and Hensel Phelps. Finally, learn about the Hawaiian tradition of groundbreaking on a construction site.
Join us as we unite and celebrate our differences and cultures across the company!
