Inclusion and Diversity

We’re stronger together

Different people from different cultures and different backgrounds bring
different perspectives – and that makes us stronger.

From ensuring representation to deploying diversity initiatives that support everyone,
our journey towards an equitable workplace strives for best practice across all strands
of diversity – age, disability, gender, sexual orientation and identity, race, and faith.

All BUUK people must be heard, valued, and treated fairly, without discrimination.
Our approach must reflect and embrace everyone. For that reason, our ED&I (Equity, Diversity
and Inclusion) working group, made up of colleagues from across the business,
informs and guides our policies, procedures and provision – and makes sure we fully
reflect everyone’s lived experiences and perspectives.

Working towards an
equitable workplace

We support LGBTQ+ through inclusive recruitment and
education. We are a multifaith employer and support
colleagues of any faith, or those without religious
beliefs, providing the resources and provision for
colleagues to follow their practices. We are becoming
Disability Confident; learning to think differently about
disability and taking action to improve how we recruit,
retain, and develop our disabled colleagues.

“Coming to BUUK has been like stepping into a
parallel universe. I was made comfortable enough to
be who I am, to change my name and openly use my
‘they/them’ pronouns. Everyone has been
accommodating, supportive and eager to ask
questions (which are always welcome, by the way!)
and to learn more”.

Best Workplaces™
for Women

Our focus on representation, fairness and flexibility, and our work to promote hybrid
working, menopause matters, fair pay and shared parental leave has gained us
recognition by our employees as one of the UK’s Best Workplaces™ for Women.
Driven by feedback from our own BUUK colleagues, the Great Place to Work® process
helps create a more level playing field for all, irrespective of gender.

“I haven’t felt like gender is a barrier
here at all. It’s inspiring that our CEO is
a woman, and it speaks volumes about
the company’s position on diversity.
I regularly hear conversations about
encouraging and recruiting more
women – not just in project
management and engineering roles
but throughout the business.”
