Caring for Our Communities

We are committed to making a positive difference in the places where we work and live by supporting organizations and causes that are important to our business, our employees and our communities. It’s a core part of our culture. Our teammates help raise funds for and volunteer with hundreds of local and national charitable organizations across the country.


A Place Where Everyone Contributes

At Balfour Beatty, we are every bit as committed to creating a workplace that is diverse, equitable and inclusive as we are to our high standards of safety and operational excellence. We prioritize having a range of talents and perspectives on our team — not only is the right thing to do, but because it makes us a better business.


Make Safety Personal

Balfour Beatty is committed to the safety and wellbeing of every employee and person who comes into contact with our projects and work sites. Safety is personal for us. Going home to our families each night is personal to us.

Zero Harm extends beyond physical wellbeing to include mental wellbeing. Construction can take a toll with long days and early mornings and we offer employees and their families a variety of resources to tap for help when it is needed most.


We're Not One to Brag

Our accolades and awards don’t give us bragging rights, but they do indicate the passion and expertise that our Relentless Allies pour into their work–day in and day out. From sector industry rankings to safety industry organization awards, each recognition represents the hard work and dedication of our teammates that set Balfour Beatty apart in the industry. We are beyond proud of their accomplishments and point to their work with the utmost pride!


Ideas Drive Change

Balfour Beatty engages our employees and their ideas to bring about positive business change that benefits our business, clients, communities, industry and environment. Our employees are our experts. They have fresh and insightful ideas about how things could be done better or more efficiently. Through My Contribution, we tap into this rich seam of creative thinking from people who understand our business better than anyone and want to make a meaningful contribution.


Here's What Excites Us

Balfour Beatty is an industry-leading provider of general contracting, at-risk construction management and design-build services for public and private sector clients across the nation. Performing heavy civil and vertical construction, our teams build the unique structures and infrastructure that play an important role in how people live, work, learn and play in our communities. That’s really exciting and easy to get passionate about!

It starts simply and effectively with an idea – a “my contribution” – where a teammates identifies something we need to do, or that you can see doesn’t work well or could work so much better.
