|CEO Robert Van Cleave accepts the 2009 Greater Dallas Business Ethics Award. Balfour Beatty Construction was runner-up in the 2009 American Business Ethics Awards.
At Balfour Beatty Construction, our reputation is one of our most valuable assets. Our stakeholders must trust that we will work in the most principled manner. Just as we "expect more" of ourselves, others must know that we will uphold the highest ethical standards in the way we conduct business, make decisions, and treat one another.
We begin by screening every job applicant for evidence that they possess ethics and integrity in abundance. And it doesn’t stop there. Fully 100% of full–time, salaried employees at Balfour Beatty Construction annually complete Compass, our ethics training program.
We supplement that training with Balfour Beatty plc’s Business Conduct Guidelines and our own Supplement to the Business Conduct Guidelines.
Our values are posted in every office and jobsite, keeping them top of mind. These commitments are woven throughout our company and culture, and the impact can be seen in results such as our being the winner of the 2009 Greater Dallas Business Ethics Award.
