Value Everyone

At Balfour Beatty we are committed to creating a diverse workforce and strive for an inclusive culture which nurtures people of all genders and backgrounds.

As a company that looks to achieve meaningful, sustainable changes – not quick fixes, we recognise that change must be led from the top. Our Group Chief Executive, Leo Quinn, is our Board-level sponsor for Equality, Diversity and Inclusion and for our Diversity and Inclusion strategy, ensuring momentum and a true cultural shift throughout our organisation.

In the UK, we have developed a Value Everyone Action Plan which sets out in detail the steps we are taking to boost the diversity of our business.

To accelerate the pace of change, we have also introduced a set of diversity & inclusion targets in the UK:

  • Increasing the number of female colleagues by 50% by 2030
  • Increasing Minority Ethnic and Black representation by 60% by 2030  
  • Aiming to achieve 40% Females at Board and Senior Leadership Teams level and one Minority Ethnic Director on the board by end of 2024.

Ultimately, we want to be an employer of choice for high quality, talented people no matter their gender, sexuality, race, ethnicity, social background or religion, not only because this is the right thing to do, but because it makes us a better business.
