It is our corporate goal to perform projects by utilizing native residents, subcontractors and equipment whenever possible. In order to provide the best possible service to our customer, we will exercise every effort to employ as many qualified people from within those regions in Alaska that the project can support.
We tailor native hire programs to meet the specific needs of the Owner. For example Davis met with NANA and developed a plan to maximize shareholder hire. Working in conjunction with the Alaska Southern Carpenter’s Union a plan was developed to utilize a 50% ratio of journeymen union carpenters to NANA Shareholder apprentices/trainees. Over thirty NANA Shareholders were employed.
As a general contractor based in Alaska, we acknowledge the genuine need for native hire within the state. We recognize that people are the key to our success and it is our responsibility to provide a safe environment conducive to personal growth and development.
Davis Constructors encourages native hire to the greatest extent possible and has implemented local hire programs with a great deal of success.
