The Supply Chain Sustainability School has partnered with National Highways to develop two brand new e-Learning Modules, to help drive forward the importance of inclusive attraction and selection practices in the industry.
Collaborating together on these two new e-Learning Modules, National Highways and the Supply Chain Sustainability School have developed these FIR resources to enable those hiring in the industry to have the best possible support when recruiting.
The Fairness, Inclusion and Respect (FIR) programme is an industry-wide initiative that aims to make workplaces better for everyone. The programme provides, free, industry-endorsed training and resources, guidance and materials, that supports businesses to be more innovative and profitable by addressing workplace culture challenges, and helps attract and retain people from the full pool of talent.
Malcolm Dare, Executive Director, Commercial & Procurement at National Highways, says: “From the data that we have collected, it’s clear that to attract more diverse people with a wider range of skills to join our sector, our approach to recruitment needs to change.
Expert advice and views from the sector have led us to funding the School to develop these two e-learning modules. These modules guide learners through inclusive attraction and recruitment processes that will encourage new entrants to the sector and provide great hints and tips on how to put it all into practice.”
