The female % of carpentry apprentices have been rising steadily since 2005 — growing 120%

Diversity is about our individual differences and acknowledging the unique blend of knowledge, skills and perspectives people bring to the workplace.
Diversity can include characteristics such as cultural background and ethnicity, age, gender, gender identity, disability, sexual orientation, religious beliefs, language and education. Diversity also includes characteristics such as professional skills, working style, location, and life experiences.
An inclusive culture is one where everyone feels valued and respected and are able to fully contribute. It is about removing barriers to make sure everyone can fully participate in the workplace and have equal access to opportunities. Inclusion is about empowering people to contribute their skills and perspectives for the benefit of organizational performance and business outcomes.
Why does it matter?
Diversity is central to innovation. It brings forth new and better ways of doing things, helps us to harness the benefits of technology and improve the efficiency and quality of our services. Inclusion is the key to unlocking this potential.
When we value workplace diversity and inclusion, we see benefits such as higher employee engagement, improved performance, greater innovation, retention of talent, improved employee wellbeing and lower levels of unlawful behavior such as harassment and discrimination.
Our goal is to create a diverse team by embracing individual skills, perspectives and experiences our people bring to the workplace and harnessing these for high performance and improve our service delivery.
The following guiding principles are key to achieving our diversity and inclusion vision. These critical success factors provide areas of focus for our diversity and inclusion actions as outlined in our supporting employee plans.

Finlay Group has introduced a long-standing intervention “Challenge Complacency”. The drive was to improve the skill of the natural leaders in the team and to give the teams a voice on safety procedures and actions. “Challenge Complacency” was also the driving force for the behavior-based observation system implementation. The use of this slogan has assisted the focus on hazard management and trends, which enable the business to target critical risks.
