Discover practical strategies and case studies to increase diversity and inclusion in the workforce
Diversity in the workplace is essential for increasing productivity and innovation, which in turn contributes to better business performance and growth. The subject of women in construction has been much-discussed – and remains important – but the low level of diversity in the sector is much more widespread. Findings from Building’s diversity survey in 2019 show that construction’s lack of diversity cuts across gender, age, race, sexual orientation and disability. For example, only 13% of workers are female (with very few in senior roles) and 4% are from BAME backgrounds.
