Diversity & Inclusion

Embracing diversity and fostering inclusion is fundamental to how we behave, day to day. This is simply the right thing to do. We achieve better outcomes by encouraging difference and working together.
  • We empower our leaders to be inclusive and address bias to make better decisions.  
  • We are committed to a level playing field, giving everyone the same chance to succeed.  
  • We encourage flexible ways of working to support different needs, priorities and lifestyles.
Flexible working is essential in supporting a diverse workforce and attracting and retaining talent. We have a variety of initiatives to support flexible work and continue to focus on providing flexibility on construction projects where possible.
