“It was an eye-opening program that introduced us the construction sector and the myriad of job opportunities it holds that can lead to life-long careers and advancement. It taught us the true meaning in investing in oneself as well as our surrounding communities that can bring forth an empowering and brighter future. Mirroring the basis of Comed’s initiative, piloting and providing opportunities in communities across the city of Chicago.”
— Jacquetta Crusoe

HBK also believes in developing and maintaining a diverse employee base. Starting in 2013, HBK participated in the pilot for ComEd’s CONSTRUCT Construction Jobs Educational Program, taking an active role in shaping the program with seven other ComEd partners and four local community agencies. HBK has participated in the program every year since its start, helping the program students to better understand our work in the utility industry with the goal of providing the students with better tools to gain meaningful, long-term employment. Now in its fourth year, the program has grown to over twenty participating companies, with two additional major utilities as well as additional community agencies. The program has proven very successful as a job creation vehicle, yielding better than a seventy percent success rate in student hires in 2015.

    “I am a very proud lifetime Chicagoan who believes in the awesome potential of this city and all that it has to offer, but I also recognize the immense challenges that many of our young citizens face in their daily lives as they dream of brighter futures. I believe that it is our duty as a community to do all we can to care for and provide opportunity for our future leaders in any capacity we can. As a volunteer at Mercy Home, I have seen the incredible accomplishments achieved when a young person is given the encouragement and tools they need to succeed. It gives me great hope for the future of the city I love.”

    Participation in HBK Impact is important to me because I have personally experienced the benefits of others who have volunteered time and skills. When I was in school, I was able to gain valuable insight and experiences that aren’t available through typical coursework as well as create connections that have contributed to building my network. I volunteer so the recipients can have a helping hand where ever needed and experience some of the same things that developed me into the person and engineer I am today.”


Our community relationships are important to us. We understand that what we give and do now will affect our future. HBK is actively involved in various organizations that drive health, education, and safety. Our charitable contributions support communities across the nation. HBK proudly supports March of Dimes, Chicago Commons, Ann &Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital, and many others.
