Fairness, Inclusion and Respect

Clients and large contractors are working together to develop a culture of Fairness, Inclusion and Respect (FIR) within their workplaces. This includes promoting equality and diversity and combating discrimination. They are increasingly expecting their supply chain partners to work with them to achieve this.

Promoting FIR brings many business benefits to the companies that work to achieve it. As a sector, we need to embrace FIR in order to attract, recruit, train and retain the skills and talent that we need to deliver our pipeline of works.

The material within these pages is intended to help companies embrace FIR and capture the business benefits that it provides.

We provide a FIR Toolkit comprising e-learning, toolbox talks and a resource library that is freely available to any company that wishes to use it.

Don't forget, we also have many events all around the country - have a look!

Organisations involved in developing the FIR Toolkit are: Balfour Beatty, BAM Construct UK, CECA, CITB, GRAHAM, Highways England, Network Rail, Osborne, Skanska and VINCI Construction UK.
