A pilot inclusion and equality scheme run by the Construction Industry Training Board’s (CITB) in which Wates Living Space joined twenty other construction companies to take part, has seen it awarded with the pilot ‘Be Fair’ people accreditation. The award was given to Living Space Planned Maintenance South which achieved an excellent 93%.
The pilot scheme is the very first industry-specific equality framework to encourage businesses to adopt practices which will enable them to maximise the rewards of our rich and diverse economy. As a member company of the pilot scheme, Wates Living Space’s feedback to CITB will enable the Be Fair accreditation scheme to be developed and rolled-out across the industry in the coming years.
Andy Hobart, Managing Director for Wates Living Space commented “This accreditation demonstrates that as a business we are firmly committed to creating and promoting an environment in which fairness, equality, inclusion and respect for people are at the heart of our people and recruitment activities and I thank everyone who took part in the assessment. These accreditations are vitally important for us in retaining and recruiting great people, and they also help us to win work. I thank all of our team who were involved in the assessments and who helped us to achieve this excellent accreditation.”
