Integrity is one of Austin’s Core Values, and as a result, is central to everything we do: among the employee-owners we work with, on the projects we build together, and in the communities we serve. It is comprised of four primary characteristics: honesty, reliability, fairness, and accountability. These guide each business transaction Austin engages in.
Our employee-owners are guided by Austin’s Code of Conduct, which outlines the ethical principles that shape our daily interactions and set expectations our employee-owners must actively commit to follow when conducting business.
Austin's Open Door Hotline allows employee-owners, subcontractors and other business partners to anonymously report unsafe, illegal, unethical behavior and harassment or other concerns relating to our business practices.
Austin's policy provides robust resources for employee-owners to report any concern or complaint regarding misconduct or policy violation by company officers.
Company culture should constant reinforce an open, trusting environment where all events, whether positive or negative, are reported in the spirit of learning, not just catching someone making a mistake.
