Social Responsibility

Committed to Our People

A sustainable company requires a motivated, engaged workforce that functions as a team. It begins with respect.

Sustaining a high-performing workforce depends on many factors. The most important is respect for our people—for their dignity, their talents and their interests. As our mission states: “We will respect the dignity of each of our employees and deal with them fairly. We will strive to maintain an environment that encourages them to develop their talents, exercise creativity and achieve superior performance.”

This means as an employer Vulcan provides:

  • A firm commitment to employee health and safety.
  • An equal opportunity workplace free from discrimination or harassment.
  • A work environment where employees are committed to “doing the right thing” and always acting ethically.
  • A work environment committed to diversity in the people we recruit and the ideas and experiences they bring to the Company.
  • Training and resources so employees can perform their job responsibilities to the best of their abilities.
  • Opportunities to grow professionally and support for pursuit of higher education.
  • Benefits that are both comprehensive and competitive and which support our employees and their families.

An indicator of the satisfaction employees have with Vulcan, and also an indicator of the qualification of our workforce, is the tenure of our employees. Vulcan takes pride in the number of long-term employees we have, people who provide invaluable experience and serve as educators and trainers for new employees.
