MAKING A DAILY DIFFERENCE
Convergint Technologies was built on a solid foundation of Values and Beliefs. These values and beliefs focus on Convergint’s commitment to our customers, our colleagues and their families, and our communities. One of these values—“we believe in balanced lives”—supports our belief that it is important for all of us to balance our time, energy, and commitments across our families, our business, and our communities. This belief empowers us to act generously and responsibly to the people and world around us.
We have created a culture of giving here at Convergint, a culture that we believe is central to our success as an organization. Not only do we give to our local communities all throughout the year, but we also take it to the next level with our yearly Convergint Social Responsibility Day. Each year in June, Convergint shuts down operations for a full workday in order to allow our colleagues to go into their communities and contribute to those in need.
2019 Convergint Day Impact
At Convergint, we believe people can make a difference on a daily basis. And acting with integrity is at the core of Convergint’s values and beliefs. Consistent with these beliefs and values, Convergint and its worldwide subsidiaries are committed to meeting their responsibilities to respect human rights as described in the International Bill of Human Rights.
Convergint has adopted a variety of policies that address different aspects of its commitment to human rights and the fair and equitable treatment of its colleagues and others with which it interacts.
If any Convergint colleague or any other person has concerns that Convergint, any of its colleagues, or any other person affiliated with Convergint is not acting on behalf of Convergint in a manner that is consistent with this statement, they must report this concern to the Ethics & Compliance Hotline at 1-877-778-5463 and/or www.reportit.net, and/or the Human Resources Team and the Legal Department.
Convergint’s STEP Up for Schools Initiative
The safety of our country’s children when heading off to school each morning is of deep concern to our colleagues at Convergint. Enhancing school security can provide a vital level of protection for students, faculty, and visitors. In that spirit, we have created our STEP Up initiative to help strengthen security in our schools. To do so, we are providing free security services to schools in need and educational resources available for download online.
Convergint is dedicated to developing a company culture where leadership and individual colleagues are committed to “making responsible decisions“ to ensure the health and safety of our colleagues, customers, business associates, and the communities in which we operate. We believe that the protection of our environment through appropriate resource and waste management is everyone’s responsibility, ours included. Sustainability by decision-making & company practices should integrate social, economic, and environmental considerations to meet present needs without compromising the needs of future generations.
Convergint Technologies’ safety culture is committed to providing the tools, training, and programs so all projects and service calls are completed with zero incidents or injuries. To support this culture and increase safety awareness between all colleagues, we have a dedicated Safety Coordinator in each office under the direction of our National Safety Officer.
Our strong belief in workplace Health and Safety is supported by the following:
Written safety and health programs
Management’s commitment and expectations of adherence to the program
Resources to meet safety and health program requirements
Project specific Safety Activity Plans
Weekly safety meetings for field supervisors and colleagues
Hazard recognition and control
Meeting contractor requirements of the OSHA Process Safety Management of Highly Hazardous Chemicals
Substance abuse program including pre-employment and random testing
Graded and non-graded background checks
Convergint Technologies is committed to diversity with the suppliers we conduct business with and have experienced the benefit of working with locally-owned businesses in the communities in which we operate. From Convergint’s perspective, it’s a win all the way around – for your business, for our business, and for every community of which we are a part.
We also understand how difficult it can be for a small business, with good people and service cultures, to make connections within larger organizations. Convergint’s Supplier Diversity Program was designed to make it easier for you to make contact with the right people within any of our North American office locations.
