According to the National Association of Women in Construction, women numbered only 10.9% of all construction workers in the United States. Although women account for more than 50% of all workers within several industries, they are widely underrepresented in the construction and restoration industries. March is International Women’s Month, and Sasser Restoration is proud to work with and support women in the restoration and construction industries not only during International Women’s Month but every month of the year.
Sasser Restoration’s mission is to be the helpers in times of need so that people and communities can restore and rebuild their lives. But this mission isn’t possible without critical thinkers, problem solvers, inquisitive minds and different perspectives. This is just one of the many reasons why Sasser Restoration is proud to employ women at all levels throughout the company. Inside Sasser Restoration’s human resources department, finance team, operations division, marketing department, technician staff and sales team, you will find women leaders making a difference.
This difference is seen not only within the culture of Sasser but also in the company’s profits and productivity. McKinsey & Co recently released a report that stated “gender-diverse companies are 25% more likely to achieve above-average profitability than companies with less diversity.” Additionally, the Harvard Business Review conducted research and found that “the more representatives a team is in terms of age, ethnicity and gender, the more creative and productive it is likely to be.”
In an industry that is typically seen as more ‘masculine,’ Sasser Restoration is paving the way and opening doors for women to take a seat at the table. “At Sasser Restoration, we truly want to be the best, top-of-the-line restoration business in the country, and we can only do that with great people by our side,” Houston Summers, partner at Sasser Restoration said. “We are privileged to work with individuals who are dedicated and committed to providing responsiveness, service and quality on every single job.”
Sasser Restoration is proud to work with women in the trades and within the construction and restoration industry. We are constantly searching for critical thinkers, lifelong learners and those who are willing to go the extra mile to join the team.
