NHBC is committed to ensuring that it promotes and encourages diversity and inclusion in everything it does mirroring the wider UK community to enable us to serve our customers, consumers and staff we employ.
In doing so it has three key objectives:-
NHBC has a range of internal initiatives that forms part of a wider Diversity and Inclusion Strategy, ensuring it remains embedded and actively promoted throughout the year. Over the last year it has run a number of events including International Women’s Day, International Men’s Day and Women in Engineering Day. We have also sponsored and had finalists at the Milton Keynes Women Leaders Awards.
NHBC recognises that a diverse workforce supports business growth and that having the CEO as the diversity sponsor ensures diversity remains a key business driver.
In conjunction with the Women in Finance Charter, led by the HM Treasury, NHBC remains committed to increasing the number of female senior managers across its workforce. Since our original submission in 2016 our senior management group has increased from 32 to 34, in which we have 12 females, 4 of which are Non-Executive Directors.
NHBC remains committed to achieving it’s stated 2020 target of having 45% of our senior manager roles lead by women.
