Equal Opportunity, Diversity, and Inclusion


As an equal opportunity employer, it is the policy of The Shockey Companies that employment practices shall not be influenced by an employee’s or applicant’s race, color, religion, sex (including pregnancy, childbirth or related medical conditions including lactation; gender identity, and sexual orientation), age (40 or older), disability, national origin, veteran status or genetic information (including family medical history).


This policy governs all cases of employment, upgrade, promotion, demotion, transfer, recruitment or recruitment advertising, rate of pay or other forms of compensation, selection for training, working conditions, employee benefits and application of policies, layoffs, terminations or any other actions affecting employees.

The Shockey Companies will not discriminate against any employee or applicant for employment because of physical or mental handicap in regard to any position for which the employee or applicant for employment is qualified.  (NOTE:  Safety is of grave importance in our industry and we must, therefore, implement a very stringent and fair selection process with regard to the employment of the handicapped).

Shockey will provide reasonable accommodations (changes to the way things are normally done at work) to applicants and employees who need them for medical or religious reasons, as required by law.

The policy and principles of equal employment opportunity also apply to the selection and treatment of independent contractors, persons working on our premises who are employed by temporary agencies and any other persons or firms doing business for or with Shockey.



The Shockey Companies acknowledge that our human capital is our greatest asset. This belief has allowed us to remain successful since our founding in 1896. Fostering a diverse workforce of varied life, educational and cultural backgrounds supports our goal of attracting and retaining top talent. We believe a range of different backgrounds, perspectives and life experiences is crucial to developing cutting edge processes that allow us to remain a leader in the construction industry. This belief also supports our Partner of Choice commitment to our employees and our customers to deliver construction services of exceptional quality and value. We believe the work environment should be one of inclusion where all are treated with dignity and respect, and we expect the same from our employees toward their co-workers and our industry partners.
