Safety drives everything we do. We are committed to bringing our people home safely every night, which requires dedication to world-class training and safety initiatives. We push ourselves to think differently, to move beyond what industry standards require. This not only benefits our employees, but our industry and our customers. We hold ourselves to the Quanta Standard.
We are a people industry. Quanta invests significant resources in industry-leading training initiatives to help our employees grow and advance in their careers. Our employee count has increased 60% since 2015, and we continue to prioritize the health and safety of our employees as a core value.
At Quanta, we pride ourselves on being a family company. Our culture is about supporting an environment where employees from all walks of life can find purpose, flourish in their work and have an equal opportunity to succeed. We encourage and support ideas, innovation and advancement to attract and retain the best workforce in the industry. To that end, we continued to enhance our efforts by creating a Director of Diversity and Inclusion position, and hiring a person with significant experience for that role.
Our customers operate in industries undergoing significant change, which presents them with both opportunities and challenges. Quanta collaborates with customers to develop solutions that support their efforts to capitalize on those opportunities while overcoming the challenges. We work hard to ensure that we meet our customers’ needs so that they, in turn, can provide the greatest benefits to their customers. We evolve forward with them, making them better. When our customers are successful, we are successful. We are also committed to the highest standards of ethics, honesty and partnership.
We are focused on operating our business for the long-term and expect to continue to distinguish ourselves through safe execution and best-in-class field leadership. We will pursue opportunities to enhance Quanta’s base business and leadership position in the industry and provide innovative solutions to our customers. We believe Quanta’s scope and scale, unique operating model and entrepreneurial mindset are the foundation that will allow us to continue to generate long-term value for our stockholders.
Most of the work we perform is outdoors. Quanta recognizes its responsibility to and the importance of being a responsible steward of the environment and minimizing our environmental impact. From everyday actions to major capital investments, we prioritize the environment around us as we make decisions. We strictly adhere to environmental rules and regulations while safely providing our services. In fact, Quanta has an industry-leading reputation for environmental stewardship and is often selected for the most environmentally sensitive projects as a result. We also care deeply about the communities in which we serve and are committed to giving back at the corporate and operating unit levels.
