Our People Make the Difference

At Vulcan, leadership doesn’t just come from the top. Our people understand that actions matter. They share a competitive drive for excellence that fosters an environment of trust, teamwork, positive reinforcement and inclusion. Ours is a culture of mutual respect, integrity and commitment that drives our growth and success.


Learning is fundamental to every employee’s job, and we encourage our people to expand and explore new territories for continued growth. We take pride in leading our industry in training and development programs. These initiatives encourage collaboration and enable people to innovate and flourish – in the workplace and out in their communities. The investment has paid off: We surpass the industry on employee tenure with a company-wide average of 12 years of service.

“We have the best people in the industry.”

- TOM HILL, Chairman and CEO

Our shared belief in doing the right thing brings all of us together. We at Vulcan are a family - sometimes quite literally.

There is no higher compliment than having a son or daughter join the Vulcan family.

More than a Job

FOSTERING A CULTURE OF STRONG ETHICS, DIVERSITY AND INCLUSION

We’re not satisfied with simply meeting job requirements. In the recruiting process, we look for people who bring more than just technical skills.

We strive to hire employees with a strong sense of integrity and a willingness to go above and beyond, providing them with tools and incentives to enhance their contributions to the Company and the communities we serve. One way we do this is through our Tuition Reimbursement Program, which pays up to 100 percent of tuition costs based on academic performance. The program builds a strong sense of loyalty within our Company and benefits our people with greater career mobility.

We also invest in training that ensures an inclusive environment and encourages the sharing of new ideas. These initiatives inspire innovative thinking and bring fresh approaches to meet challenges and deliver effective solutions.

Diversity and Inclusion

We have launched an initiative centered on diversity and inclusion in the workplace. We call it Diversity and Inclusion (D&I). It is a core principle of our culture.

We come from different walks of life. We each have our own distinctive life experiences and unique skill sets. Our workforce has grown and is made up of diverse people with different backgrounds. Our customers are changing, too. We firmly believe that by leveraging our differences and bringing forth the best possible outcomes, we win and we retain our competitive advantage.

Through an inclusive workplace, we create an environment that leverages our different ideas, experiences and perspectives to foster innovation, improve productivity, achieve competitive advantage and increase profitability. And it’s how we attract, grow, and retain the best talent in the industry.

Our Commitments

Safety, Health & Environment

Protecting the health and safety of people and the environment guides us in everything we do. It goes far beyond regulatory compliance. It’s a personal responsibility we have to one another, our families, neighbors and the community. Our people lead the way. Their expertise, dedication and best practices are the reason we are a longtime industry leader in safety, health and environmental performance.

Working with the land is the crux of our business. Mining is an interim use of the land. Good stewardship means taking a holistic approach that bears in mind the present and the future.

Community

Strong communities are built on the actions of individuals. Our people are proud to contribute to the communities in which they live and work in big ways and in small – from disaster relief and emergency management to educational and social causes. At Vulcan, it’s more than just financial support. Our people volunteer their time and talent.
