Our Way of Business


Through the power of mentorship, actively engaging in DBE outreach, and implementing comprehensive diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) efforts to foster an inclusive and supportive environment, our commitment to creating a culture where every voice is heard and everyone can thrive is our way of doing business.


We know a diverse and inclusive workforce plays a vital role in fostering innovation, driving growth, and ensuring long-term success for any organization. By embracing individuals with different backgrounds, experiences, and perspectives, we tap into a wealth of creative ideas and unique problem-solving approaches. This diversity sparks innovation and enhances productivity by fostering a collaborative and inclusive environment where all employees feel valued and empowered.

Culture of Care
Rice Lake has taken the Culture of Care Pledge to advance construction as the industry of choice for diverse and talented workers. Through the pledge, we join the nationwide effort to build inclusive work environments by adhering to the four Culture of Care pillars of Commit, Attract, Retain, and Empower. Learn more about our Culture of Care pledge.

We have participated in programs that support and grow underutilized businesses for over a decade. Through these programs, we align our professionals with business owners to guide them as they navigate the construction industry. These partnerships foster personal and professional development, paving the way for future leaders to thrive.


We actively engage and provide opportunities to disadvantaged, underutilized businesses to unlock their full potential and achieve success. We apply the same outreach to local subcontractors and vendors for each geographical project location. We take the time to invest in these businesses to build positive and long-term relationships, empowering local and DBEs to flourish while contributing to our collective success.
