Diversity & Inclusion
The industry recognises that if it is to attract the best and the brightest to home building there is a need to develop a more diverse and inclusive workforce.
The Home Building Skills Partnership is working with home builders and their supply chain to promote diversity and inclusion in the workplace. We have established a Diversity and Inclusion Group to ensure the sector is recognised as being inclusive and progressive. The key purpose of the group is to increase homebuilding support, adoption and implementation of policies that promote, attract and sustain a diverse and inclusive workforce.
The group is open to all members of HBF and the Home Building Skills Partnership. Please contact Emma.Ramell@hbf.co.uk if you would like further information or to join.
Diversity is a recognition that everyone is unique. In practical terms, this means acknowledging the benefits of being able to draw upon a wide range of experiences and perspectives in decision-making processes through having a workforce that is formed of a broad mix of people.
Building on this, an inclusive workplace is one in which everyone feels valued and able to perform at their best, regardless of their circumstances, background, or identity.
