Let’s face it:
Our industry’s approach to risk isn’t working.

As we navigate the most challenging labor market in our American history, the safety and financial risks our partners bring to the job are compounding.

Every year in the U.S., there are roughly 150,000 injuries on job sites, and over 5,000 construction workers lose their lives.

Census of Fatal Occupational Injuries Summary, 2020

96% of construction businesses fail before they reach ten years of age. This is the highest failure rate of any industry.

Companies Fail, 2019

Small business fairs worse: Injury rates among firms with 11 to 49 employees are 5x the rate for those with over 1,000 employees.

Traditional contractor prequalification provides a static assessment of each contractor’s safety risks based on lagging indicators. This gives us a false sense of security because of it’s overreliance looking in the rear-view mirror.

And without considering leading indicators of improvement, you’re not accurately predicting future risks.

Which partners are truly safe? Which has just been lucky?

Financially, a small business’s viability can change overnight as they stretch to take on larger projects. Again, prequalification looks backward, while we really need dynamic capacity insight at each project phase and each stage of a partner’s growth.

Will the project you award be the straw that breaks the camel’s back?

In a world where we depend on contracting partners to be successful, the things we’re doing to enable their success no longer work.

Partner Elevation presents an alternative approach: Let’s meet our partners wherever they are on their journey to delivering better work. Let’s help them build a safer and more enduring business by collaborating with them to dynamically mitigate risk together.

Let’s change our mindset.
Let’s elevate our partners.

Take the Partner Elevation Pledge

  I will adopt the Partner Elevation mindset.

I know that shifting the mindset of an entire organization starts at the top, but starting today I will bring the Partner Elevation mindset to my projects and to my team.

  I will be a safety mentor, not just a safety cop.

I know that safety is everyone’s responsibility and we can drive change more effectively as mentors than cops. Let’s throw away the clip-board-ticket approach to risk management and create a safety-centric culture built on collaborating instead of demanding compliance.

  I will treat every contractor like a strategic partner.

I’ll invest in the success of contracting partners as if they were our own employees. Their bottom line is our bottom line—we must succeed together.

  I will do more than just set the bar, I’ll help my partners clear it.

Rather than setting rigid requirements for financial liquidity, I’ll provide flexible financial terms to expand partners’ capacity to deliver work.

  I will prioritize safety first because the rest will follow.

When we save lives, avoid injury, and prevent default, we also save money. Fewer claims and less litigation lead to lower premiums and fewer settlements.

  I will develop and expand the ecosystem of partners.

By committing to helping my partners deliver better work, I will expand the pool of available partners, elevating the entire industry to our shared benefit.

Take the Partner Elevation Pledge

and commit to changing your mindset and putting your partners first.
