Launch day – August 28, 2018
Westcor Construction opened its doors on September 1st, 2003. For 15 years, Westcor has been Building a Better World, The Westcor Way. The Westcor Way is about putting people before profit, committing to continuous improvement and sustainable learning, and collaborating every day. Most of all, The Westcor Way is about building relationships and understanding the strength of a community. Without the support of our community, friends and families, collaborators, and industry peers, Westcor wouldn’t be where we are today.
Throughout our years working to Build a Better World, we’ve learned the importance of giving back. We promote Corporate Social Responsibility, a business approach that contributes to sustainable development by delivering economic, social, and environmental benefits for all. We focus our efforts on collaboration, reciprocity, and creating win-win scenarios to foster an environment of mutual understanding, growth, and fulfillment. We are proud to give back to the community that has helped shape who we are and to celebrate our 15th anniversary, we’re looking to the future.
We are so excited to announce the launch of:
The purpose of this initiative is to give back to our community. For the first year, we committed to 15 acts of community kindness. Since that point, we’ve worked with over 30 community partners to help lessen the load of our brothers and sisters in need.
Continuing the tradition today
Our culture has created a second family for our employees, a second home to many of them, and we expand on that love and compassion by extending our culture into the community for those that need what we have to offer. Time, energy, support, whatever it may be that is lacking, our team consistently steps up and volunteers for the next opportunity to help.
When we take care of each other, a foundation is built that allows us, as a team, to take care of our community. This is what Building a Better Community is all about.
When we named the initiative, we were intentional with the words “A People-First Initiative” because we knew that this initiative would be significant to the recipients as well as to the people who serve. This initiative started with the idea of doing 15 acts of kindness over 12 months and we knew in our hearts that this was an ambitious goal but we understood that there was a need so we trusted that it would work out, and it sure did. We have amazing employees who are dedicated to helping the community. We have an incredible community that stepped up whenever we asked for help – we had our business and community partners asking us in advance for details of the next act of kindness so they could line up their support.
We are deeply humbled that we were recognized as the CCA Community Leader in 2020, especially considering that there is so much incredible community work being done by our industry throughout Canada. Thank you to everyone in our industry for your incredible contributions to community work – these contributions are more important than ever as we navigate through these unprecedented times together. We truly are stronger together.
