Hoffman is committed to building a more diverse construction industry. We actively engage the subcontracting community to help optimize the opportunities for minorities, women and small business on all of our projects. Our goal is to create a strong, broad-based workforce and a diverse pool of subcontractors, to ensure that the benefits of construction work spread to the whole community. Hoffman takes the “skill building” approach to increasing diverse participation in our industry. While it’s good to help a firm get work on a project, we think it’s better to help them gain the skills that will allow them to grow and prosper over the long-term.
Hoffman works closely with programs and organizations that promote diversity and inclusion in the construction trades. We have internal outreach specialists who provide technical support and mentorship to small and minority- or women-owned firms.
We also work hand-in-hand with industry groups to achieve high levels of apprenticeship opportunities on our projects.Our project management and procurement procedures make sure everyone has a chance to work on our jobsites and that firms grow in scope and capacity from the experience.
