A culture of Fairness, Inclusion and Respect (FIR) is being embraced by the workforce at WJ.
WJ believe that by embracing FIR it is enhancing their core values of safety, delivery, innovation and collaboration, improving their proposition to clients and making their business a decent, in the true sense of the word, place to work.
The FIR agenda includes promoting equality and diversity and combatting discrimination which is a cultural step change, for some, but rightly expected from the entire construction supply chain.
The National Inclusion Week which starts 26 September 2016 is an annual campaign run by inclusive employers to raise awareness of the importance of inclusion in the workplace and the business benefits to having an inclusive culture.
Paul Aldridge, WJ South managing director, commented: “Creating a culture of fairness, inclusion and respect in the workplace enables our people to do the best job they can. That, in turn, creates job satisfaction, boosts productivity and benefits the business bottom line.”
Andrew Fawcett, senior contracts manager at WJ South and the WJ Group FIR ambassador, added: “Using FIR in our everyday operations helps us to add value as a collaborative partner for our clientele through a fair, inclusive and respectful culture.”
The FIR project is a joint initiative of the Supply Chain Sustainability School, CITB and CECA and the Toolkit Resource Library contains a range of resources that specifically explain how being a good employer promotes FIR and vice versa.
