Colonial Systems is a woman-owned business.
Our appreciation for the importance of fair and open competition and supplier diversity begins with the fact that Colonial Systems is a certified woman-owned business. The Commonwealth of Massachusetts first certified Colonial Systems, Inc., as a M/WBE business in 1992, the year of our founding.
Diversity in our workforce makes us a stronger company and a leader in the communities we serve. As a member of the New England Regional Council of Carpenters (NERCC), Colonial Systems has actively participated in all Council-sponsored diversity initiatives. We have also participated in national initiatives, such as Helmets to Hardhats, in which the Council has been a partner.
The following Non-Discrimination Policy is clearly stated on the Colonial Systems employment application and website:
Colonial Systems, Inc. affords equal opportunity to all applicants without regard to race, color, religion, gender, national origin, age, disability, veteran status or any other status protected under local, state or federal laws.
Colonial Systems has a long history of working with the largest general contractors in Boston, including Turner Construction, Suffolk Construction, Columbia Construction, and Skanska Construction. To meet project-specific employment diversity goals, we have worked in partnership with the Carpenters Council and the general contractor to recruit, hire, and train new members into the union who represent the makeup of the given community where Colonial Systems is at work.
Where necessary to meet a certain level of workforce diversity, Colonial Systems has supplemented our current employees with skilled labor from the union local(s). We would then report on the diversity of this unified workforce using the mechanisms required by the general contractor or Boston Residents Jobs Policy (BRJP).
