The Power of Diversity
The Power of Diversity – Through Our Employees
Diversity is vital to the success of TriVersity. The TriVersity workforce personifies diversity of not only race and gender, but age, thought, experience, and more. We are proactive with our recruitment and talent development efforts. We set high expectations for our success in attracting the very best talent in the industry and ensuring the talent is diverse.
“TriVersity teams younger, highly qualified engineers with seasoned and experienced engineers,” says Dan Gerke, TriVersity Project Executive. “This offers a broad array of talent, comprising diverse people from different backgrounds, and the collaboration is great for the client.”
We then focus on retaining and developing that talent through a well-developed system of enhanced employee communication, training coaching/mentoring and professional exposure.
The Power of Diversity – through Our Subcontractor Partners
TriVersity Construction Company is a certified Minority Business Enterprise (MBE). We are committed to fostering an environment in which all businesses can participate in project opportunities. We are also committed to helping other minority firms develop and grow their businesses for the long term. TriVersity has deep knowledge, understanding and relationships with many local minority and women-owned businesses. This makes it possible for TriVersity to often exceed the inclusion expectations of our clients. We seek significant inclusion on all of our projects and have success stories where we have attained and sustained as high as 70% inclusion. Jody Corbett, owner of Custom Millcraft, a woman-owned casework firm, said her business has grown based on the relationship she has forged with TriVersity.
“Custom Millcraft is treated more like a partner than a vendor,” Corbett says. “Working with TriVersity has enabled Custom Millcraft to experience increased growth resulting in additional hiring and expansion.”
In addition to Custom Millcraft, the following are just some of the ways we have helped contribute to the growth of minority owned firms:
- Spent $8.8 million with women and minority owned firms
- Mentored four MBE/WBEs (Women Business Enterprise) with their growth and development
- Nominated for Minority Supplier of the Year in 2012
- Contributed $40,000 to support minority business organizations
We also encourage and track second tier purchases by our prime contractors with MBE and WBE subcontractors and suppliers.
As a member of the Ohio Minority Supplier Development Council (OMSDC), TriVersity assures all MBE/WBE organizations are recognized by established certification agencies.
Michael Griffie, owner of M-Pact Corporation, a minority-owned electrical contracting firm, said of the key supplier model:
“The increase in business and taking a lead role as the prime contractor has been a platform for growing our company.”
