Employer of Choice
Creating an environment that our colleagues can thrive in
Creating a safe, diverse, and inclusive environment – as well as investing in and upskilling our workforce – are just some of the ways we can ensure that Bellway is an employer of choice.
Working for better
As a responsible employer, we are committed to being an inclusive organisation that strives to create a working environment that is open, diverse, and free from all forms of prejudice and discrimination.
Bellway wouldn’t exist without the talent and commitment of our colleagues. We invest in our people to ensure that they have the training and ongoing development necessary to develop their careers and deliver work they can be proud of.
As an active member of ‘The 5% Club’, we commit to having at least 5% of our workforce employed in ‘earn and learn’ roles, including apprenticeships, student placements, and graduate roles.
Taking the right steps
- In our 2020/21 business-wide employee engagement survey, we achieved a 95% score for diversity and inclusion.
- Our employee network, ‘Balance’, brings people together from across the business to work on a variety of projects to support and promote gender balance.
- Over the course of 2022, we will be asking employees to provide us with a broader range of diversity data relating to social mobility, disability and gender identity.
We must make better choices for the benefit of our employees
