Valuing Our Workforce
Borras work hard to provide a rewarding, enjoyable atmosphere of trust where staff feel valued and are aware of their personal contribution to our success.
Our colleagues are treated fairly and provided the opportunities to realise their full potential through continual learning and development.
The commitment we make to our staff is evidenced by 11 years of continuous accreditation to Investors in People. Investors in People is the standard for people management which is underpinned by a rigorous assessment methodology and a framework which reflects the very latest workplace trends, essential skills and effective structures required to outperform in any industry.
Equality & Diversity
At Borras we treat everyone equally and foster a culture free from discrimination, harassment and victimisation. As such we value diversity among our staff, customers, suppliers and the wider community and respect the individual contributions of all people.
That is why we want a workforce that reflects the diverse community at large and expect all employees and associates to treat each other with dignity and respect.
We base all decisions related to recruitment, disciplinary action, dismissal or promotion solely on work criteria and individual performance.
We have held C2E (Committed to Equality) Gold Diversity Assured Accreditation since 2009. This is a national equality standard, designed to help organisations reach their potential and demonstrate their equality and diversity work practices.
APPROACH TO MODERN SLAVERY
Borras have a zero tolerance approach to modern slavery and human trafficking in our organisation and across our supply chain. We are committed to acting ethically and with integrity in all our business relationships and to implementing and enforcing effective systems and controls to eliminate the risk of modern slavery consistent with our obligations under the Modern Slavery Act 2015.
We demand the same strict approach and high standards from all contractors, suppliers and other business partners and have robust pre-qualification processes in place to ensure all are slavery free.
We are committed to providing modern slavery training for our staff and labour agencies to highlight issues and challenges specific to the construction industry. All employees, sub-contractors, suppliers and clients are encouraged to report in good faith any issues or concerns about potential ethics, human rights, legal or regulatory violations, including improper or unethical business practices such as fraud or bribery.
Our audit and business operations teams are involved in ensuring these processes work effectively and monitor it regularly, adapting as necessary to the changing needs of the business. To date, there have been no reported cases of modern slavery within the business or our supply chain.
