Inclusion and Diversity
The work we do is extremely varied, so the teams we have delivering these services should be diverse too. They should also reflect the communities we serve. But we know we have a long way to go to achieve this. That is why we have launched a programme across the business to help us become a leading voice on diversity in our industry.
Why inclusion matters
Our success depends on our creative spark and we know that a truly diverse workforce brings the widest possible range of ideas to our business. It also helps to deliver greater value to our customers. It is part of our corporate ethos to treat everyone who works for us - or with us - fairly, with dignity and respect. This means challenging conventional thinking and breaking down barriers that hold people back.
Equal opportunities for all
We offer challenging and worthwhile careers to everyone. It doesn’t matter what your gender, sexual orientation, background, age or disability is. Our commitment to inclusion stems from the very top of our business. Because we know having a wide range of diversity and experience will help us deliver services that respond to our customers and the communities we serve.
Investors in Diversity
We're the only business in our industry to be awarded both Investors in People Gold and Champion status – and we’re really proud of this. We are also the first infrastructure business to achieve Leaders in Diversity accreditation across all business areas. We continue to build upon this by:
- letting people know what inclusion is and how they can support
- looking at how we can become even more inclusive
- making sure that the services we provide include everyone and don’t exclude people because they are different.
