How Business Can Help Heal

In a transitional period our nation’s history in which we’re struggling to find answers for how to solve centuries old injustices, how to help others flourish and succeed, and how to give people hope in the midst of a seemingly endless news cycle of pain and discouragement, entrepreneurship and helping people build and create skills to reach greater levels of economic progress is one of our best answers.

Thomas Auringer, CEO and Founder of U.S. Crane and Rigging, has led a movement through his company to help elevate the lives of minority workers and to create a culture in which employees can thrive and advance organically from one degree of skill to the next. While our nation struggles with answers on how best to help and serve the historically marginalized and disenfranchised, pure and simple business development helps give people from all backgrounds the opportunities and resources needed to build great careers. U.S. Crane and Rigging is one company helping to make this happen each day.

Work environments in our country have been ravaged by a pandemic and political distrust, and companies like Auringer’s are helping to take a stand for creating safe, inclusive, and healthy work cultures for employees of all backgrounds. Auringer has actively worked to build relationships and create a culture that helps each employee thrive.

As a case in point, all supervisors at U.S. Crane and Rigging are promoted from within, with an incredible 89% of the company’s employee base represented by minority workers.

Auringer explains, “We pride ourselves in being an equal opportunity employer. U.S. Crane & Rigging makes it a tradition to pay its employees fair wages, and we value the contribution each employee makes to the growth of the company.”

Auringer explains on U.S. Crane and Rigging’s website,

Our most valuable resource is our employees and through them we provide a completely managed solution. Our methodology involves value engineering consultation and an extensive review focused on preparation, planning, and engineering for all crane rentals, trucking, and rigging operations. A complete understanding of our customer requirements and needs enables US Crane and Rigging, LLC to execute services safely, on schedule and meet customer requirements.

Our experienced, licensed employees are among the best in the industry and our specialized equipment is unsurpassed, both determined and designed to carry out even the toughest crane and derrick rigging jobs. Whether you require a basic rough, all−terrain crane or one of our hammer head, luffer, internal or external tower cranes and derricks, we have the right tools and the right personnel to do any and all jobs.”

It’s easy to buy into media narratives that create division and distrust, but it’s also easy to see how pure and simple business growth can help level playing fields and give people the skills and power they need to advance their careers and thus their families and communities. These are some of the many principles that U.S. Crane and Rigging, starting with Thomas Auringer, stand behind.
