Diversity is about recognising our differences and acknowledging the benefit of having a range of perspectives in decision-making. That's why we are committed to building and maintaining a workforce that reflects the communities we serve across the UK.
Developing an inclusive environment ensures people's differences are valued and used to enable everyone to thrive at work. We want all our employees to feel that they belong without having to conform, that their contribution matters and they are able to perform to their full potential, no matter their background, identity or circumstances.
It’s our policy that all employees are treated fairly in relation to job applications and opportunities for training, career development and promotion. So, if you have a disability or long-term health condition that might impact your progress through our application process, let us know and we’ll do everything we can to make reasonable adjustments.
We're proactive in our approach to inclusive recruitment. Through our targeted initiatives and strategic partnerships with Energy & Utility Skills and EqualEngineers, we are putting ourselves at the forefront of securing equality in our industry. And, by celebrating the successes of our people, we continue to build a diverse and growing pool of talent.
Diversity and inclusion are woven into the fabric of who we are as a business and, and this means it needs to be driven by our people.
One of the ways we’re doing this is through our Employee Communities. They represent a broad spectrum of what makes up our culture, and help nurture and support where we want to get to. Our Employee Communities play an important role in integrating a diverse workforce, creating an inclusive culture and keep employees engaged and motivated.
