VIRTUAL: Business Case for Fairness, Inclusion & Respect Workshop
Wednesday, 12 May 2021, 9:30 AM - 12:30 PM
Join us to understand what FIR means, why it matters and how you can achieve it to enable a better workplace for all.
Construction and infrastructure have a pipeline of works worth £600bn, and there are further significant works planned, including building new homes and adapting our workplaces and wider built environment post COVID 19. To ensure we have the skills knowledge and experience required to deliver the necessary work, the industry must ensure it is recruiting and retaining the best people, at all levels of the supply chains.
We need to make our industry a more inclusive place to work; a place where people are happy, feel valued and can thrive in a supportive working environment. One way that we can do this is by developing a culture of Fairness, Inclusion and Respect (FIR) in our offices and on our sites. In return we will see an increase in workforce engagement, a boost in productivity, greater innovation and higher financial returns.
By attending this workshop you will learn:
- What Fairness, Inclusion and Respect means
- Why it matters and the business case for FIR
- How to progress FIR within your organisation
You will learn how to use the FIR Toolkit for the built environment. These are free-to-access resources, part funded by CITB and distributed through The Supply Chain Sustainability School. The FIR Toolkit was created by partners including CECA, Network Rail, Highways England, Skanska, VINCI Construction, BAM Construct UK, Balfour Beatty and GRAHAM Construction.
