Carillion has today shown its commitment to providing an inclusive workplace for its people whatever their sexuality by launching a new LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender) network.
The network called Connect will enable Carillion LGBT colleagues to meet, share information and support and advise the business on relevant issues.
In addition Carillion has signed up as a Diversity Champion with leading LGBT equality charity Stonewall.
To mark the formation of Connect during LGBT History Month (February), the rainbow flag was hoisted at Carillion’s head office in Wolverhampton and other Carillion locations across the country.
The launch of Connect builds on the success of other Carillion groups such as the Working Mums and Working Dads networks which demonstrates the company’s commitment to making sure that it is a welcoming and supportive place for everyone.
“There is a genuine belief in diversity and inclusion at Carillion and in creating a welcoming workplace where people can give their best because they can be themselves.
“An accepting and supportive work environment is a hallmark of Carillion and we are delighted to launch our Connect network and partnership with Stonewall today during LGBT History Month.”
