Diversity & Inclusion

Creating a diverse and inclusive workplace

As an employer of choice across the industry, we not only want to attract the best talent – we also want to ensure that our workforce is welcoming and inclusive.

Diversity can be defined as a measure of difference in identity; things like gender, ethnicity, age, sexual orientation, ability, or religion. Inclusion is about making sure that people feel valued, respected, listened to and that they have a voice. It’s about recognising and valuing the differences we each bring to the workplace and creating an environment where everyone has equal access to opportunities and resources and can contribute to Hill’s success.


What are we doing?

In 2018, we introduced an Inclusion and Diversity working group to drive initiatives to help Hill in its mission to create a more inclusive and diverse workplace

 

Implemented mandatory diversity training for every Hill employee to encourage a welcoming workplace for all

 

Created a Diversity and Inclusion policy to ensure Hill’s standards, ethics and beliefs in regards to diversity and inclusion are upheld

 

Implemented an anonymous reporting process solely for issues facing diversity and inclusion, to ensure that anyone can make a report in a safe way

Women into Construction

As a platinum member, Hill has the support of Women into Construction (WiC) when organising work placements and employment.

Since the launch of the Cambridgeshire division in 2019, the programme has seen 37 women register, and has organised for a number of work placement across our construction sites. The work placements consist of either 2-6 weeks full time or 4-13 weeks part time, working two days per week, with expenses including fares, childcare and PPE paid for.

On 5th October 2020, a female candidate who came via Women into Construction will also be starting as a Trainee Site Manager at one of our Cambridge Investment Partnership developments.

Supporting the Future of London and Altair’s Future Talent Programme

Hill are part of the Future of London’s Emerging Talent Programme. Working with specialist housing consultancy Altair, and a number of other supporters, Future of London will reach out to BAME individuals to offer an inclusive entry point for a greater diversity of talent into housing and regenerations sectors.The aims of the programme are to:

  • Attract greater diversity into sector
  • Fast track potential leaders
  • Increase understanding and awareness of the range of career opportunities in the sector
  • Offer a twenty-one month programme of rotations through partner organisations
  • Create a unique experience working across housing associations, local authorities, consultancies and private developers
  • Support innovation and diversity of thought leading to better performance of host organisations and the sector overall

“Working in estate regeneration for the last 20 years has given us a unique understanding of the challenges city living can bring, which is why we are so proud to be a part of this programme. Not only does this initiative seek to address the lack of diversity within our industry, it also provides candidates with access to a diverse range of skills and valuable experience through in-depth secondments, demonstrating the range of career opportunities the housebuilding sector can offer.”
