“At Skanska, ‘Care for Life’ and ‘Be Better Together’ are two of our most important values. Our KNOW THE LINE training helps us advance respect, inclusion, and safety—both physical and psychological—in the workplace. Our goal is to safeguard a culture where all our people feel included, respected, and safe to do their jobs the best they can each and every day.

In parallel, respect, inclusion, safety, and equity are the pillars needed in today’s construction environment if we want to remain sustainable. RISE UP training sets the table for the conversations that must take place to ensure our words and behaviors are embedded into the culture. That’s why we work with like-minded program partner ANEW, to further RISE UP training, pre-apprenticeship programs, and other activities that benefit our local people, the community, and society as a whole.”
