We are pleased to announce that M. Lambe Construction has signed up to the Race at Work Charter. The main aim of the charter is to ensure businesses operate a recruitment policy and provide career development opportunities: based on an individual’s merits and ability alone.
Michael Lambe, director and executive sponsor for race, M. Lambe Construction, said: “Equality has always been a core part of our business ethics. By joining the charter, we are saying to potential and existing employees this is a company where they will be treated equally and supported along a successful career pathway, without prejudice.”
Our business is headquartered in Birmingham, a region with a proud history of multiculturalism. Yet, many of the city’s residents who live in the most deprived areas are of a minority group.
Michael Lambe, said: “Research has found that where social deprivation exists, residents have very limited prospect of achieving a good level of education and getting on a career pathway. I’d like to see more done by the construction industry to support these communities. An increase in apprenticeship schemes – with vocational education – will not only help tackle deprivation, it will also go a long way in resolving the skills crisis we face in construction today. It’s a win win for all.”
