RAM is Awarded the Community Champion by Builders Code Champion Awards 2021
For the third consecutive year, RAM has received an award by the Builders Code Champion Awards. This year, RAM was awarded the Community Champion (Large Employer Category), which recognizes companies that promote career opportunities for women in the skilled trades; support their tradespeople to mentor others; and promote education, awareness and training that positively impacts their community, company and employees.
The Builders Code Awards are designed to recognize employers who are making a positive difference in advancing the culture of BC’s industrial, commercial, and institutional construction sector. To be considered for an award, organizations must demonstrate their commitment, leadership and action towards the increasing the retention of tradeswomen in their company and advancing the provincial goal of 10% women in BC’s construction workforce over the next 10 years.
The Builders Code sets a standard code of conduct for workers on construction sites in BC. It defines an “Acceptable Worksite” as the starting point for reducing risk and ensuring a safe and productive environment for all workers. The Builders Code is intended to help construction employers communicate a reasonable, consistent behavior expectation to improve the safety, productivity and retention of skilled tradespeople, and reduce project risk.

RAM signed BC Builders Code’s “Acceptable Worksite Pledge” in October 2019 to fully commit to building a workforce where all employees are able to perform at their best and reach their full potential. RAM was awarded the Workplace Culture Champion by Builders Code in 2020 and the Recruiting & Hiring Champion in 2019. In 2021, RAM also signed MinvervaBC’s Diversity Pledge, a public commitment to achieve gender parity in the workplace.
