At Associated Builders and Contractors, we believe that career opportunities in this nation should be created and made available to all people.

We believe in creating—and championing—conditions where individuals and organizations are limited only by their own potential and desire.

This is the driving force behind the merit shop philosophy and ABC’s inclusion, diversity and merit initiatives.

With the founding principles of free enterprise and open competition as their foundation, ABC’s IDM initiatives are focused on bettering the individual, the industry and the nation. ABC values inclusion, diversity and merit as an empowering competitive advantage.

Inclusion
A feeling of belonging. To value differences to achieve superior results. All are welcome, valued and included.

Diversity
An appreciation of a variety of abilities, skills and experiences. To actively seek stakeholders from diverse cultural backgrounds to achieve superior results. Giving all individuals and organizations the opportunity to compete in a fair and open market-place.

Merit
A dedication to providing opportunities for all. Creating the conditions for everyone to compete on a fair and level playing field. Every individual and organization has the opportunity to succeed based on merit.
