Hensel Phelps Awarded 2018 National Diversity Excellence Award
Brad Lewis, Corporate Director of Supplier Diversity, credits the project teams who implement corporate commitment to small business and help foster a healthy, competitive local business community.
“It is an honor to accept this award on behalf of Hensel Phelps,” Lewis said. “It is no surprise to me that we have won this award seven times. Credit goes to our project teams who are committed to increasing the capacity of our small businesses. As a large general contractor, it is our responsibility to grow the future large businesses.”
The winning companies, selected from entries submitted from across the nation, were judged based on the diversity of the company: a focus on diversity in hiring practices, training and retention, contractor/vendor relationships, among other criteria. The award ceremony was held in Long Beach, California, during the 2019 ABC Convention.
A full list of winners is available on ABC National’s website. To learn more about Hensel Phelps’ diversity programs, visit the Employee Diversity page at henselphelps.com/employee-diversity/.
