Social Responsibility

Shaw stands on the values of honesty, integrity and hard work. Through these, we strive to be seen as a world-class company as defined by the customers we serve. These values drive our desire to innovate, to continuously improve and to exceed our customer's expectations in quality, service and value.


Diversity is more than race, gender and age. At Shaw, diversity is about inclusion and respect for people. Only by including and developing talented people from different backgrounds, experiences and perspectives will we ensure our place as a world-class organization and win in the marketplace. An environment that values and respects the varied backgrounds of all people will allow us to exceed the expectations of our customers, increase our value to stakeholders and provide growth opportunities for our people.
