What began with two brothers and a dream has grown — 130 years later — into one of the largest construction companies in North America, with a growing presence in Australia. Throughout Kiewit’s history, we have built roads that connect the world, dug canals to carry water to thirsty lands and bored tunnels through mountains. We build. We mine. We shape the landscape and create energy solutions. And we do it all with integrity, never compromising our ethics.
Since its inception, Kiewit’s culture has thrived on strong principles. From generation to generation, the torch has been passed down and carried by the hands of our leaders and workforce. Today, our core values remain our company’s cornerstone and are the sum of our business ethics conduct.
People. Without our safety-minded workforce, our company would cease to exist — it is that simple. That is why we hire the best and brightest minds in the industry. And by providing the best training, we watch our employees strengthen their skills to further our company’s success.
Integrity. We conduct our business and personal affairs with the highest levels of integrity. We take responsibility and accountability for all our words and actions. We are honest, straightforward and deal fairly with everyone. Operational and financial records are maintained accurately and truthfully — no exceptions.
Excellence. At Kiewit, we never stop raising the bar. Consistently focused on high quality production, we commit to excellence in all we do. We encourage new and innovative ideas with forward thinking. We build our work right the first time, delivering with a sense of urgency the highest value to our clients.
Stewardship. Every day, we realize the role we have as stewards in our communities and on this earth —after all, we work in our own backyards as much as we do yours. By preserving our legacy and developing a new generation of leaders, we are building a stronger organization for future employees and our owners of tomorrow.
"A fundamental principle at Kiewit is that there is no gain or benefit that justifies unethical conduct."
Bruce Grewcock, Kiewit CEO and Chairman of the Board
To us, ethical behavior is more than words on paper. It is a total commitment involving every employee that crosses all lines of business, impacting everything we do. We have built an enviable, well-deserved reputation for integrity and honesty in our workplace conduct and our business relationships. To make sure we live up to that expectation, we stay true to Our Core Values.
If we suspect unethical behavior, it is our obligation to report it. If we suspect or are aware of misconduct, or if we have a question about what is the right thing to do, we use any of the following resources: Contact Management and/or the Legal Department, or report through the Compliance Reporting Line.
