Your skills and talent drive innovative thinking

That’s why we strive to have diversity in the construction support services roles and a diverse construction workforce. Our 2021 diverse new hires goal is 20% across all positions.

Workforce Diversity Focus


  • High school minority student outreach through STEM and construction career pathway programs like CPS Strong and UC in Cincinnati and The ROC in Charlotte.
  • Relationships with Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs).
  • Diversity Ambassadors in each region that represent Messer and build awareness about our workforce diversity initiatives.
  • College students pursuing operations or business careers in construction can review details about Messer-funded scholarship opportunities.


  • Minority and Female Mentoring Program connecting high-potential minority and female employees with a senior manager to supplement their growth and development.
  • Craftforce Diversity Leadership Program (CDLP), an innovative program that focuses on the intentional, accelerated growth of diverse and female craftforce professionals.

Please be aware, it is not the practice of Messer or any of our subsidiaries to request personal information or conduct employment interviews via email or web chat. The safety and protection of your personal information are our top priorities. All offers of employment include face-to-face interview.
