GRAHAM has won multiple awards at the annual Considerate Constructors Scheme (CCS) Leading Lights awards ceremony.

GRAHAM's teams have provided excellent innovative and collaborative solutions to support their colleagues and supply chain partners with health and wellbeing concerns.

One of the awards is the Workforce Overall Organisation Award for "delivering an outstanding programme of support" through their "Supporting Women" programme.

Hollie Cregan, GRAHAM Head of Equality, Diversity & FIR said: "GRAHAM is committed to supporting its female colleagues by investing in practical solutions, policies and resources. We recognise the challenges women face working in the construction industry and, in doing so, create an inclusive workplace where women feel respected and empowered to thrive throughout all stages of life."

Conducting research and evaluating industry best practices, several initiatives were implemented with a focus on employee well-being. These included improvements such as increased maternity leave compensation, paid leave for employees undergoing fertility treatment, a pilot program for flexible working policies, and the distribution of complimentary sustainable period care products in all restroom facilities across various locations and offices.

Addressing the need for increased awareness and support for menopause, a dedicated plan was developed to empower women and ensure they receive the necessary assistance without having to endure challenges silently.

Committing to the nationally recognised 'Menopause Workplace Pledge', GRAHAM’s menopause support programme includes:

• Creating a new menopause policy including manager support guides.

• Appointing and training menopause advocates across the business.

• Launching menopause workshops, external webinars and a ‘Menopause and Me’ podcast

• Creating new resources accessed and promoted on the company’s intranet page and external WellHub.

• Providing access to the award winning Balance+ app, with personalised support and symptoms tracker.
