Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

At Balfour Beatty, we are every bit as committed to creating a workplace that is diverse, equitable and inclusive as we are to our high standards of safety and operational excellence. We prioritize having a range of talents and perspectives on our team — not simply because this is the right thing to do, but because it makes us a better business.

DEI-Our Journey

Our Journey

At Balfour Beatty, it is core to our culture to value everyone. We believe everyone who works for us and with us has an inalienable right to respect. Our diversity, equity and inclusion (DE&I) journey shifted from a grass roots-driven effort to a strategic focus and business imperative because it was the right thing to do. Actions, words—and moreover inactions—have meaning and power. Balfour Beatty is committed to ensuring our workplaces harness the power of diverse talent, perspectives and contributions.

Our affinity groups work beyond educating our employees on culture and heritage. They serve as a place to connect, build relationships and forge ideas for new pathways for the company. Our affinity groups develop programming, training and resources that advance and enrich our business and ensure Balfour Beatty is a place where everyone is valued.
