Vertical Bridge has a well-established ESG (Environmental, Social, and Governance) culture and programs that are supported and promoted by our investors, management team and employees.
Team VB consists of people from 32 different countries and growing. Our strength comes from our different backgrounds, experiences and beliefs. Over 62% of our team comes from diverse backgrounds, and DEI (Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion) is an important aspect of our company culture and core beliefs.
Vertical Bridge has an ongoing commitment to maintaining a strong and balanced meritocracy and DEI-based corporate culture and policies in everything that we do. As we continue to grow, our goal remains to attract, develop and retain the best and brightest individuals from all backgrounds.
We take no shortcuts when it comes to providing a safe working environment at Vertical Bridge. Our in-house Safety Committee works closely with health and safety professionals to create policies that protect our employees, vendors and partners at our office and at our more than 500,000 sites across the country. To date, Vertical Bridge has never been cited for a single Occupational Health and Safety Administration (OSHA) violation. Our Safety Committee also maintains and updates our firmwide Safety Manual, which gets distributed to each of our employees and outlines our Standard Operating Procedures and Policies. Our commitment to safety ensures we not only stay compliant with the standards set by OSHA, NATE, WIA and other industry associations, but those we set for ourselves as well.
