More diversity. More equality.
While the house building industry is not known for being the most diverse or gender equal, we’re working hard to change perceptions.
We now have a female Regional Managing Director and our approach to identifying and developing our talent will continue our focus in this important area. We now also have our first female Executive Board member. To promote our industry, we work closely with education providers and community groups and focus on family friendly benefits that support employees with children.
Looking out for everybody’s wellbeing
We take the health and wellbeing of our people very seriously. Our KeepWell programme, which includes a focus on Mental Health Awareness has been particularly important over the last 12 months, when the resources and tools provided have supported our people through the challenges of the pandemic. This year, we have also trained 33 mental health first aiders to help communicate tips and advice for mental health support across the business.
