Propelling innovation and creativity in our work

Over the past decade, as Salt Lake City has grown, the economy has thrived, and the building industry has boomed. Despite advances in the construction industry everywhere from sustainability to safety, efficiency and speed, one key factor continues to plague projects: the labor shortage. 

Mortenson is tackling this issue head-on, actively working to increase the diversity of the talent pipeline and placing this new generation of construction leaders in both project management and craftworker roles. In fact, 34% of Mortenson’s workforce is female and nearly 10% of their craftworkers are women, too. Nationally, women in construction account for just 1.25% of the total workforce. 

Through the creation of workforce development programs and inclusionary efforts, Mortenson is creating a stronger, more equitable and diverse workforce. Additionally, Mortenson is equipped to self-perform projects of virtually any scale.
