Our commitment

Being an inclusive place to work is morally and ethically the right thing to do. Kier is committed to doing just that, and being a place where everyone has their voice heard and can fulfil their potential. we’re working with others across the industry to ensure the construction sector is a welcoming one to candidates from all backgrounds.

 

 

Everyone at Kier should expect respect

To deliver on our commitment of being an inclusive place to work, we have introduced Expect Respect, a campaign that educates employees on inclusive language and communicates Kier’s zero tolerance approach to bullying and harassment.

As part of the campaign, we have introduced a confidential call it out line for people to report bullying and harassment and launched the five respect basics, which everyone who works with and for Kier is expected to follow:

  • Banter is not an excuse
  • Call it out
  • Be open minded
  • Respect each other
  • Take action
