Solihull based firm constructing a successful inclusion and diversity reputation

Solihull Editorial 18th Feb, 2022   0

A SOLIHULL-based company has been handed a top award for its ongoing dedication to inclusion and diversity.

Tarmac, which has its headquarters just off Bickenhill Lane, was awarded the Clear Assured Silver Standard for its work to demonstrate a commitment to inclusion and diversity in the work place.

The Clear Assured Standard, from assessment body The Clear Company, is a globally-recognised accreditation and it is awarded to businesses which can demonstrate a commitment to inclusion and diversity measures which are reflected across both company policies and culture.

Last year the sustainable building materials and construction solutions business achieved the bronze standard.

Louise Houston, head of inclusion and diversity for Tarmac, said: “Embedding inclusion and diversity into our business has been key to achieving the Silver Standard from Clear Assured and this has been a significant team effort right across Tarmac.

“We would not have been able to make the progress we have without outstanding leadership and a commitment to implementing initiatives which enhance our support for employees at all stages of their careers.”

Head of Clear Assured, Anna Mäkinen, added: “By achieving Silver Standard at Clear Assured, Tarmac has expanded workplace diversity and embedded inclusion and diversity throughout the employee experience through measures such as ensuring benefit packages are inclusive and accessible, and incorporating flexible work arrangements where possible to improve inclusion, growth and trust.

“With this in mind Tarmac is aiming to set new goals and move towards making greater impact both internally and externally, and we are delighted to continue assisting them in achieving their vision and mission.”
