Skill is promoted through communication. Atkinson wants to be the best communicator in the industry and provide opportunities for its people to succeed.

To do this Atkinson communicates clear expectations, measures performance, and follows up with feedback and recognition.

Atkinson incrementally introduces achievable goals, provides a system of measurement to ensure success, then provides feedback and, ultimately, recognition for the work completed. Nothing is left unmeasured and ambiguous.

Atkinson asks each job site to conduct weekly safety audits, weekly safety meetings and daily pre-task meetings.
