We know that our people perform better when they can be themselves.
We’re proud to be an organisation where people can flourish – to learn, develop and maximise their potential.
That’s why we want to be an employer which offers an equal, inclusive and inspiring environment where LGBT people can live and work free from discrimination, and are able to grow and succeed.
Our ‘Connect’ network is made up of LGBT colleagues and ‘straight allies’ who are helping to advise and support our Leadership Team to help make Carillion a leading light when it comes to being an open and inclusive business – which succeeds because of the diversity our people bring.
Connect also enables our LGBT colleagues to meet, share information and discuss key issues.
“Connect underlines our commitment to supporting equality and diversity within the business. It shows that Carillion lives its Values and truly cares about the health and wellbeing of its staff.”
Carillion has also signed up as a Diversity Champion with leading LGBT equality charity Stonewall.
Stonewall’s Diversity Champions programme is Britain’s leading best-practice employers’ forum for sexual orientation and gender identity equality, diversity and inclusion.
Stonewall is working with over 700 organisations across public, private and third sectors to help them create inclusive and accepting environments.
