we go further
That’s the spirit that drives us. It creates our tight-knit, collaborative culture. It feeds our curiosity. And it lays the foundation for groundbreaking approaches to how we work.
A collaborative culture
When we say we build buildings, that’s not the whole truth—we build our people. And we see it as our mission to empower them to redefine what’s possible in the built world.
The most important thing at Suffolk? Teamwork. Our diverse, high-performing teams encourage each other every step of the way and deliver seamless results.View our work

Cultivating, promoting, and celebrating diversity and inclusion is the responsibility of every Suffolk employee. In our journey to dismantle systemic racism, we have focused on having courageous conversations and creating a new framework for diversity and inclusion by transitioning from compliance to inclusive leadership through diversity, equity, and accountability.
As part of our work, we have launched a three-pillared set of commitments and actions known as “The Three Cs”: Company, Construction Industry, and Community. These components frame our long-term, impactful and sustainable solutions to help turn the tide of racial disparity at every level. We believe racial injustice should not be tolerated in the world around us because Black lives matter.
We Are Suffolk
We Are Suffolk is our three-day immersive learning and acculturation experience for all new employees. This program connects colleagues from different departments and regions and builds engagement through presentations and meetings with leadership. Participants learn more about Suffolk, our core values, history, and strategy.

“Focus on the three Ps: people, process, and projects. Get to know as many people as possible, discover how Suffolk works, and ask what we have built, are building, and want to build. It takes a year to learn your job and how Suffolk works. Work hard. Be inquisitive, but don’t be too hard on yourself. Job sites and the people who work there are a wealth of information. And they enjoy your visit. Get out. See Suffolk at work.”
“I learned that mastering communication and building relationships with people not only improves your outlook on going to work, but also results in positive outcomes by highlighting cross-functional synergies. The more one can learn about every aspect of the business at Suffolk, the better equipped one is to move the needle and spark new ideas. If you are not coming from a construction background, make it a priority to go on site visits and facilitate a mentorship with someone in operations. Having an understanding of what the day-to-day is like on site and the culture of the construction industry makes working for the company more fulfilling.”
“If I had to compare my first time working at Suffolk and this second time returning to the company as a rehire, the HR team has done a great job with the onboarding program. With this new format, I knew right away who we were and where we were heading. This gave me—from day one—confidence on my choice. So, take advantage of and embrace the three-day onboarding program by participating and creating relationships with other participants and the presenters. Understanding the vision and the direction Suffolk is taking for the future, and the role you might play in it, will give you confidence in your choice and a clear path to where the company is heading.”
