Share Article

Understanding that our differences help us to build the best teams, Gilbane’s offices worldwide will hold special events January 21-24, 2013 to celebrate diversity and inclusion.

Gilbane's corporate office employees play a variation of Hollywood Squares to celebrate Diversity Week.

Our Gilbane Cares philosophy isn’t a campaign or a slogan. It’s the way we do business.

With a company wide focus on promoting and strengthening the role of diversity both within Gilbane and the construction industry, Gilbane is holding its annual Diversity Week this week. This year’s theme, Building Winning Partnerships, recognizes that our best teams are made up of people from different backgrounds with different experience.

“Our business is about people,” says William J. Gilbane, Jr., president and chief operating officer. “From our employees to the suppliers and contractors we work with to our clients, we have various strengths and views we bring to the table. When we embrace one another’s differences and understand that with those different perspectives comes a greater understanding of the task at hand, we can truly offer our employees the chance to shine and our clients the best service. Our Gilbane Cares philosophy isn’t a campaign or a slogan. It’s the way we do business.”

Employees in office locations around the world will be commemorating Diversity Week in various ways, ranging from community service efforts such as food drives, group volunteer efforts at local shelters, and fundraisers to fun “getting-to-know-you” exercises including Lunch with an Unfamiliar Friend, employee success stories, and trivia contests.
