National Inclusion Week – 2019
Its National Inclusion week this week and we are going to be keeping you up to date with what our Framework Partners have been doing to show their support. See below from Paul Raby, Balfour Beatty – Group HR Director ….
“National Inclusion Week kicked off on Monday, and I am proud that Balfour Beatty will be supporting and celebrating this campaign across our UK sites and offices.
Inclusion is essential to the business and to our workforce for many reasons. A diverse and inclusive workforce spurs the most innovation, has the most satisfied employees, and builds the respect needed for everyone to feel safe and valued at work. This helps everyone fulfil their potential and work together effectively. And, simply put, promoting inclusion is the right thing to do.
National Inclusion Week is a great opportunity for us to not only champion how every individual that works with us is valued and is part of the team that makes us a great company, but it’s also a time to reflect on what we can do better. That’s why I hope that you will look at the many resources available on the Diversity and Inclusion intranet page, such as our Include Everyone Team Talk to start the conversations in your teams. Every day we’ll be hosting webinars with internal and external speakers sharing their knowledge on all things diversity and inclusion, as well as a different challenge that you can join in each day to help make your workplace more inclusive.”
