Diverse perspectives

What makes Balfour Beatty unique is the expertise and capability of our people. By encouraging everyone from all backgrounds to join us, and enabling them to do their best, we help to bridge the skills gap our industry continues to face.

Diversity of people, perspectives and experience is essential to help Balfour Beatty address business challenges and perform for our customers. We believe in creating a safe and welcoming workplace with a supportive and fair culture that encourages innovative and fresh ways of thinking.

Our diversity and inclusion (D&I) strategy drives action to improve diversity in our organisation. It promotes high performance, engagement and makes Balfour Beatty a great place to work. The skills and diversity of our people and our supply chain are vital to the development and success of our business.
