Diversity and inclusion
People are at their most productive when they are included and valued.
That’s why diversity and inclusivity are key to our business strategy.
We have an active, employee-led staff network – Encompass – which helps to drive our work around diversity and inclusion, as well as providing networks of support for our team.
Groups within the Encompass family include Carers Network, Race Equality Group, Gender Group, LGBT+, and Ability Action. Encompass has a clear mandate to encourage self-learning, reflection and open dialogue. The work of the individual Encompass groups is also collaborative, recognising the intersectional nature of discrimination and disadvantage.
Since 2018 we have published data on our gender pay gap and in 2021 we added our ethnicity pay gap data – both statements are included in our [annual report].
GENDER AND ETHNICITY PAY GAP
We report these figures because we believe it is important to continue to improve diversity in the construction industry, particularly at senior levels. Whilst we have always had an ambition to address this imbalance, we recognise there is more to do.
