We’ve Signed Up – The CIOB Equality Diversity and Inclusion Charter

Hutton Group are pleased to announce that we have signed up to the CIOB Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) Charter.

Quote from the CIOB ‘The business case for a commitment to Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) is well established. Diverse and inclusive organisations have been shown to be more creative, productive, profitable and more responsive to diverse customer needs.  Ambitious employers are recognising the need to attract and retain a diverse and talented pool of built environment professionals for the best chance of success in global markets. 

Yet Construction remains a male-dominated industry across the globe.  In the UK, women make up around 15% of the construction workforce, with 2% of those working on-site. This figure is even less for those from a Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) background who only make up 6% of the workforce.  This stark under-representation points to one obvious solution to the current and on-going skills shortage in the Construction sector.

That is why the CIOB is committed to promoting EDI in the sector.  We understand that EDI is not a ‘zero sum game’. Promoting fair and equitable access to opportunities and inclusive practices will contribute to a stronger economy to everyone’s benefit, across and beyond the construction industry.’ 

The CIOB encourages those who sign up to the Charter to use various actions to make a difference in their organisation and encourage others to do the same.
