Mission, Vision & Values

Our vision is to build a sustainable future working in partnership with our communities.

Everything we do at Walker supports our communities; all of our communities. We look at our relationships with our neighbours, customers, regulatory authorities and of course employees as partnerships. A sustainable future for Walker, means working together with each of these groups to safely build and service communities across Canada and the U.S. while investing in their health, educational and cultural well-being.

 

OUR MISSION IS TO SUPPORT COMMUNITIES THROUGH WHAT WE DO, HOW WE DO IT, AND BY CARING ABOUT OUR PEOPLE, OUR NEIGHBOURS AND THE ENVIRONMENT. IT IS OUR LEGACY AND OUR FUTURE.

People rely on our products and services every day. From building roads and bridges to safely disposing of waste, what we do matters. How we do it though, is of equal importance. Choosing to always look for environmentally responsible solutions, finding innovative ways to recover materials from waste and keeping employees safe through a commitment to health and safety is the way we do business. It’s the Walker way.

Our values are summarized in the acronym REACH to embody our overarching goal to make a positive impact today and every day.

OUR VALUES

Resilience
RESILIENCE
We believe in resilience in its truest form; adaptation in the face of adversity or opportunity. This translates in our legacy and commitment to innovation, our willingness and confidence to forge our own path, and in our long term focus, seeing things through to fruition and understanding that opportunities take time to be realized.
Environment
ENVIRONMENT
We are committed to protecting the environment through sustainable business practices. How we do business is as important as what we do. This means that we recognize our responsibility to not only adhere to required environmental practices across all of our business units, but to go above and beyond and do what is right. This comes from our belief in always taking the long view, and understanding that our actions today impact tomorrow’s generations.
Accountability
ACCOUNTABILITY
Accountability drives success. We expect it from our high performance employees and suppliers, and it’s why we are accountable to our customers and community partners. Taking responsibility for our actions means we always strive to do what is right, not only to achieve business results but in caring for the environment and the well-being of our people and communities.
Community
COMMUNITY
The Walker community encompasses employees, customers, suppliers, government officials, Indigenous groups and neighbours that reside in all of our business locations. For each of these groups we believe that all people should be treated with integrity and respect, that their health and safety is paramount, and that their contributions and active participation in how we do business matters.
Humility
HUMILITY
Actions speak louder than words. This philosophy is fundamental to who we are as a company, understanding that doing what is right is our obligation and does not require recognition. This humble assertion has allowed our actions to tell our story and will continue to do so as we confidently chart our future, embracing our role of being a good neighbour and supporting the environmental, health, educational and cultural needs of each of our communities.
