CULTURE

Our Culture

Employees contribute to a culture of unconditional professional respect and inclusivity. By challenging ourselves to be open to new ideas, different perspectives, and to assume positive intent in all situations, we are able to demonstrate our commitment to creating an environment of inclusion.

Ongoing education in the below areas engages our employees and creates a common language rooted in our Core Values:

IMPLICIT BIAS

Learning about implicit, or unconscious, bias helps our employees understand others and be better-understood by others.

When we accept that we are all biased, we are able to learn, grow, and take action.

TRUSTING TEAMS

Psychologically safe teams adopt a growth mindset and focus on collective goals.

Trusting, safe teams practice empathy, vulnerability, and encourage equal participation in team tasks.

AUTHENTICITY

When our employees can bring their best, whole selves to work, job satisfaction, performance, and engagement increases.

Building authentic teams is key to achieving our business goals.

Performance Contracting’s Commitment to Culture

As part of our continuous commitment to inclusivity, Performance Contracting aligns with national initiatives focused on increasing inclusive working environments.

CAREER

At Performance Contracting, we work to recruit, develop, and empower employees from a diversity of backgrounds and experiences.

RECRUITMENT

It takes the strength in character, commitment, and capacity of everyone to keep us on the leading edge. The people of PCI are truly the secret to our continued success.

We work to create a diverse, competitive pipeline of talent for our organization by partnering with internal Employee Resource Groups and external workforce organizations.

DEVELOPMENT

Placing a high value on training and professional development, employees are encouraged to broaden and strengthen their unique skill sets so they can fully realize their potential.

From instructor-led group training to online courses and more, we provide diverse course offerings to aid employees’ professional development and ensure they’re equipped with tools for success. We believe that learning is a never-ending process and that with the right training, every person’s performance can be optimized to the highest possible level.

EMPOWERMENT

We have a deep-rooted belief in empowering our employees. We work towards solutions, professionally and ethically. We treat each employee with dignity and respect.

Simply put, we strive to do the right thing at work and at home – in everything we do.

Empowerment

We have to meet our people where they are. Everybody is not in the same place at the same time. Empower your people to have a voice and be vulnerable. The latter part of that is the hardest piece of it. Making people feel comfortable to be vulnerable enough to have these conversations is critical.

Robyn Kavanagh , Director, Human Resources

COMMUNITY

Performance Contracting collaborates with external partners to elevate diversity and inclusion in our industry and our communities. Through these partnerships, we produce tangible, sustainable actions for our organization. Our joint efforts create new pathways to increase inclusion.

Simply put, we all win when we ensure our employees feel safe to bring their best, authentic selves to work each and every day.

Performance Contracting is proud to partner with the above organizations to produce meaningful and lasting impacts for our current workforce and future generations of construction professionals.

Women in Construction

PCI actively supports diversity and inclusion through our Women in Construction (WIC) and Veteran Recruitment Initiatives. Through WIC, our goal is to become an employer of choice for women. The Initiative has multiple phases, the first of which is aimed at empowering our current women operations employees through leadership and mentorship programs.

Veteran Recruitment Initiatives

PCI’s Veteran Recruitment Initiative seeks to augment our commitment to supporting the military by establishing a focused pipeline of candidates for consideration in field and salaried roles.

Mentorship

Be a mentor to someone. If you know someone who is an outsider or may not be in their comfort zone, pull them aside and ask them if they want to be mentored and want feedback to be more effective.

Adrian Mendoza , Regional Manager
