SIGAL believes in promoting and encouraging volunteerism among its employees. Some of these volunteer efforts have begun at the corporate level, while others have started as employee grassroots efforts. Altogether, our intent is to make these efforts a tradition of community goodwill by the SIGAL Team.
The SIGAL Employee Volunteer Program is a company-wide program that encourages our employees to volunteer for community organizations by matching their interests with volunteer opportunities. Regularly recognized by the Washington Business Journal as one of the top philanthropic companies in the Washington Area, we work hard to match our employees interests with community efforts.
SIGAL participates in community service through sponsorships and participation in industry related events that are coordinated by organizations like The National Building Museum, JDRF, So Others Might Eat, DCBIA, USGBC, and older efforts like Operation Spiffy John in the 1990s. We also encourage and support SIGAL staff to pursue volunteering options individually.
As a regional company we are committed to supporting our local communities; we have a vested interest in working to provide our communities with opportunity and options in work, housing, education, and amenities. We focus on projects that help further these goals, while giving us an opportunity to push our industry through innovative construction methods and advancement in sustainability.
We have the honor of participating in a number of efforts in and around Washington that meet our community service ambitions. We work closely with, and serve on the board of, the DC Students Construction Trades Foundation, participating in career fairs, their apprenticeship program, and by hiring students and graduates from the program. We are currently building one of the first housing projects geared entirely to help fight Veteran Homelessness (The John and Jill Ker Conway Residence).
