How can my business get more involved in the community — and is it worth it?
At Baker Construction and Development, we have a strong commitment to improving the lives of the people in the great community we are lucky enough to call home. It is of paramount importance that we support the community that has supported us since 1951.
Our city has some incredible businesses and nonprofits working hard to improve the lives of many. While we wish we could help them all financially, we are proud to say our employees donate their most treasured asset with the greatest generosity: their time. From serving on boards and committees to getting out there and actually rolling up our sleeves to lend a hand, great experiences and relationships are built through service.
How did we get started? We connected with things that were already important to us. Servant leadership is taking care of those around you before one’s self. We’re proud to partner with many companies and nonprofits that share our values and moral compass. As we head into the future, we’ll continue doing business the old-fashioned way with a healthy sense of humor and treating our clients as an extension of our family. It is a true joy to partner with groups with shared passions for our great community.
