Building the capacity of local workers and firms is one of the most promising ways to stimulate local economic development
We design and execute skill-building programs that enable workers to meet project needs and prepare for employment opportunities beyond construction. Further, Robey Construction conducts programs that help local suppliers and contractors develop critical skills to be more competitive in future opportunities—whether with Robey Construction or other projects.
In many parts of the Country, our projects can attract significant numbers of potential workers, especially in areas where a project is a rare opportunity for employment or income. Robey Construction early planning and systematic approaches help us avoid the effects of unmanaged worker influx, which can trigger conflict and other socioeconomic tensions.
Our workforce and camp management program is based on a consultative process involving our customer, government authorities, workers, and communities. This process enables us to select the optimal site location; identify community issues, demographics, and cultures to avoid potential conflicts; and maximize the camp’s positive effects on host communities.
