Mott MacDonald have launched a new set of targets which aim to embed, sustain and further improve equality, diversity and inclusion in their organisation. The goals have been established as part of the company’s UK equality, diversity and inclusion (EDI) action plan for 2017/18.

These measures are based on analysis of employee metrics and wider demographics trends, combined with feedback from employee engagement surveys and focus groups. Their findings will be used to monitor the representation of candidates and staff by gender, gender identity, race, disability and sexual orientation. This information will then be used to report quarterly to Mott MacDonald’s regional executive board and its award-winning Advance employee network. These reports will focus on staff representation across all levels of the business, from apprentice to leadership, in the key action areas of attract and recruit, retain and engage, and develop and progress.

Mott MacDonald’s managing director for the UK and Europe, James Harris, said: “An inclusive workplace is key to our collaborative culture and to meeting the needs of our clients, suppliers and customers. By committing to measurable goals, we’re demonstrating our ambition to drive diversity as being central to how we do business. We are determined to attract and engage the best people, with meritocracy recognising a true diversity of talent.”

Sandra Kerr OBE, Business in the Community’s race equality director, commented: “It is excellent to see Mott MacDonald championing EDI and making clear commitments to increasing the diversity of its staff at all levels of its business. This is positive news for the engineering and construction sectors.”

Stonewall’s executive director of business development, Darren Towers, added: “Setting clear goals for LGBT representation at work enables organisations to better track progress on inclusion and identify where more work needs to be done. It helps attract and retain LGBT staff and, if they’re not, address why this might be. It’s great to see Mott MacDonald make this a priority, which will no doubt help both its current and future LGBT employees feel more confident, satisfied and valued at work.”

Mott MacDonald is a US$2bn engineering, management and development consultancy involved in improving the lives of people and businesses around the world.
