Chapel Hill, NC (PRWEB) June 19, 2012
James McHugh Construction Co., one of the nation’s largest construction and general contracting companies, announced that they are implementing a new ethics hotline with Ethical Advocate, a third party hotline service provider. The decision to provide a third party hotline as opposed to using an internal hotline was made to ensure that all employees and vendors are comfortable in providing feedback.
Ethical Advocate’s service gives stakeholders the ability to report feedback anonymously and confidentially if they choose to do so. McHugh administrators will also be able to ask questions of reporters through the anonymous interface.
According to Patricia McHugh, “We really want to do the right thing as a company in every facet of our operations. We encourage anyone in our organization and our stakeholders to use the service if they wish to provide anonymous feedback.”
Ethical Advocate will provide the hotline 24 hours a day, every day of the year. McHugh selected Ethical Advocate because they were highly recommended by others in the construction industry. “Their system is awesome and very user friendly. They are great to work with and very responsive” according to McHugh.
The company plans to customize the system to track their unique areas of feedback interest and will have access to the extensive Ethical Advocate reporting system. The system will give McHugh’s team the ability to analyze reports and trends by functional area, such as contracts, safety, environmental, people, and financial.
About James McHugh Construction Co.
Founded in 1897, McHugh is one of Chicago's oldest and largest general contracting, construction management and consulting firms. Many of Chicago’s top landmarks bear McHugh’s imprint including world-renowned structures such as Marina City with its striking corncob shape, Water Tower Place, Trump Hotel & Tower, and the world-class Arlington Park racetrack, completed in a record 21 months. More recent contributions to Chicago’s distinct milieu include the Aqua tower with its undulating “waves” of concrete, the Goodman Theatre, the striking angles of the Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum, the reconstruction of Wacker Drive, theWIT Hotel and The Blackstone Hotel, and the new high-rise neighborhood of Lakeshore East.
McHugh’s leadership applies to its people as well as its structures.
