Corporate Social Responsibility
Flatiron employees take pride in being highly committed and engaged with our communities. Whether building footbridges in Central America or homes for Habitat for Humanity down the street, Flatiron employees have the opportunity to become part of something larger. This commitment makes working at Flatiron more than just a job.
Flatiron's mission is captured in its motto, "Build the Best. Be the Best." Being the best means conducting business with unquestionable integrity and uncompromising ethics. Our mission is not just something we say, it is how we do business and beyond that, describes the character traits that our employees share. Learn more about our ethical business practices.
Flatiron recognizes the importance of giving back to the community and makes it a priority to be involved in the areas where we live and work. Flatiron supports local, national, and international programs. Since 2009, Flatiron has partnered with non-profit organization Bridges to Prosperity to design and build footbridges over impassable or life-threatening river crossings in rural areas of Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador. Flatiron will construct at least a dozen footbridges globally with Bridges to Prosperity from 2012 to 2017. Learn more about our work with Bridges to Prosperity and other community involvement efforts.
Flatiron values education and supports a variety of outreach programs, sponsorships and scholarships. Our engineers visit elementary schools to teach bridge building classes and Flatiron hosts a competition for interns to compete for college scholarships.
Innovation & Development
With ingenuity as a core value, Flatiron focuses on innovation and development of new ideas.
Health & Well-Being
Flatiron understands that our employees' well-being is not only comprised of being safe while on the job. Although Flatiron is growing, it remains small enough that employees are well aware of each other's needs. For example, employees often start a fund for those employees and their families that may have health issues and other hardships. Bank accounts have been established for employees that experience financial hardships due to an unforeseen accident or event. Sometimes meal services are provided to deliver meals to an employee's home during a time of need.
Flatiron is committed to sustainable business practices. From recycling concrete on our projects to recycling programs at our offices, we're constantly looking at new ways to improve the way we do business. Learn more about environmental stewardship at Flatiron.

The importance of diversity is exemplified through our policies and training programs. Flatiron is dedicated to utilizing Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) participation, including Minority Business Enterprises and Women-Owned Business Enterprises, on its projects.
