Diversity at NHBC

Our Diversity Equity and Inclusion (DE&I) strategy is focused on providing a shared direction and commitment for the organisation to respect and value our diverse workforce and continue to build a more inclusive workplace. We aim to attract and retain a workforce that represents the communities in which we work.

Striving towards a more inclusive workplace

One way we are moving towards a more inclusive workplace is through Employee Networks.These are groups of employees who share characteristics or life experiences. The networks encourage employees to bring their whole self to work and help to create an inclusive work environment in the organisation.

Imposter Syndrome

In June, over 130 colleagues joined the latest Women’s Network event. The event featured an introduction from our Women’s Network Chair, Alison Garner and our new DE&I ExCo sponsor Kim Bromley. They were joined by guest speaker Jacqueline Heron, Executive and Leadership Coach, who gave a talk on imposter syndrome. During the event, colleagues learnt about how to recognise imposter syndrome and what you can do to overcome it.
