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.

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

Opportunity for all
Suffolk is dedicated to transforming the construction experience by building and leveraging a diverse and inclusive workforce where all individuals are supported, respected, connected, and valued. We embrace individual differences and recognize the benefits that diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) bring to maximize the growth of our business and people. Our DEI framework — Inclusion, Diversity, Equity, and Accountability (IDEA) — is a holistic, data-driven approach designed to move our organization beyond conventional compliance and create inclusive leadership that attracts, retains, and develops diverse talent. Our current diversity data exceeds construction industry benchmarks for underrepresented talent, but we won’t stop there. We will continue to build and strengthen our efforts in all aspects of our business, as we believe in opportunity for all.
Business Resource Groups
We encourage all our people to participate in our Business Resource Groups (BRGs) as members or allies. BRGs are voluntary employee-led groups to share unique perspectives and experiences. In these spaces, our teams engage and learn from one another through meetings, educational activities, and social events. BRGs are platforms for our people to be seen and heard, making Suffolk an even better place to work. Our BRGs are led by an executive sponsor and two co-captains and reflect the rich and diverse communities in which we live and operate. Our current BRGs are: African American / Black Employee Leaders (AABEL), Build Pride, Veterans, and Women Who Build.
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.”
“My time in special operations required a “team first” mentality, where we pulled together different experts and listened to their perspectives to execute the mission. I’m doing that at Suffolk too. We always want to have that mentality and understand the pain points for the boots on the ground. Suffolk is a place where we can pivot and move quickly. And, because of the patriotism, pace and camaraderie here, it’s also a place that resonates with people who said yes during a time of war. That’s profound.”
“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.”
