Investors in Diversity accreditation – 18/10/11

 Investors In Diversity - Stage 1

Henry Boot Construction has just been accredited to Stage One of the Investors in Diversity programme, acknowledging a commitment to equality and diversity throughout the company.

The three-stage assessment process started with a review of current business practices and a survey of existing employees, senior managers and external stakeholders to determine the current position and look for potential areas of improvement.

Following the Stage One accreditation, targeted EDI strategies will now be drawn up which will eventually lead to full accreditation under the nationally recognised scheme.

HBC now progress to Stage Two, and updates will be provided as work progresses.

“Working in an industry which is not renowned for its focus on equality and diversity, this achievement shows the company's commitment to working in a collaborative manner recognising the knowledge that differing cultures and people can bring.”

Rachel White, Group HR Manager, Henry Boot PLC
