 Resolute Building Company’s “focus groups”, which have now been in place for 2 years, were open for new enrollment in 2018, as we are ready to put these groups into full action.   Under the direction of the Executive Focus Group, Resolute’s on-going focus groups include the Project Manager Focus Group; the Superintendent Focus Group; the Safety Focus Group; and the Human Resources Group.

We look forward to heading into 2018 and challenging each other to “building better”!

Winter Olympics 2018 – what can we do to support?

So the question was: “What can we do to support, and get involved with the Winter Olympics this year?”

The answer: follow the sport, follow an athlete!

Each Resolute employee randomly drew a sport to support and then he/she selected an athlete to follow.  See the chart!  Folks are really engaged and some of them are corresponding via email or text with some of the Athletes!  Go USA!

Thanksgiving – Resolute Style

As everyone prepares for this special Thanksgiving season, and taking time to think about what you and we are all “thankful” for, as part of Resolute’ s continued commitment to “give back” to others and show our “thanks”; today, on behalf of our Resolute Family, we presented 12 cases of popcorn to the USO at RDU Airport for them to distribute to our soldiers and families over the holiday season. Wishing all an enjoyable and restful Thanksgiving weekend and for those of you that are traveling, please be safe and look out for each other!

HAPPY THANKSGIVING!
