Our commitment to equality, diversity and inclusion (EDI) runs right through our entire employee experience. We work to ensure our processes level the playing field for everyone so we can attract, motivate, develop, and retain the best talent.
Our global EDI policy applies to all the locations in which we work and is available here.
We promote an inclusive workplace environment where people can bring their full selves to work and we work hard to ensure everyone is offered equality of opportunity to achieve their full potential. We have taken action to ensure that all decisions we make relating to employment practices are objective, free from bias and based solely upon work criteria and individual skills and potential.
We’ve already achieved a lot, such as:
- Launching a series of goals to embed, sustain and further improve diversity amongst our employees. Part of our UK EDI action plan for 2017-2018, the goals have been established to increase diversity at all levels.
- Delivering unconscious bias training for recruitment staff and managers with a new e-learning module set for release Group-wide and embedded in our induction program.
- Building employee networks including specific disability, gender, LGBT+, race and parents and carers networks, to provide a sense of community and support diverse talent in our business. Each group has a champion, resource and agreed action plan.
- Signing up to the UK government's Disability Confident employer scheme, this means our job adverts are accessible (see information about applying online below), we regularly review our recruitment processes, and offer interviews to disabled people who meet core role requirements.
- Actively collaborating with external organisations to support our EDI efforts including Women in Science and Engineering (WISE), Business in the Community’s Race at Work campaign, Stonewall, and the Business Disability Forum.
- Hosting several peer learning forums with these groups on EDI in Engineering, Engaging Majority Champions of Inclusion and Race Equality in Engineering.
- Developing a toolkit on 'S.M.A.R.T. Working' to support managers in implementing flexible and agile working across the company.
- Winning multiple awards for our EDI efforts, including New Civil Engineer’s Diversity Champion of the Year 2016, ranking 17th in the Top 50 Inclusive UK Employers list 2016 and winning the 2017 Chartered Institution of Highways and Transportation Diversity and Inclusion Award 2017.
- Sponsored the video series ‘What’s it Like?’ which was filmed and produced by us on behalf of InterEngineering, an LGBT networking group, to mark the start of LGBT History Month and launched at the Royal Academy of Engineering (RAEng).
