"When I joined in 2011, Arcadis was not known as a LGBT+ friendly employer and we realised that because of this, we were missing out on an enormous amount of talent.

 The group has had successes already, including equality proofing our HR family friendly policies, and working with industry colleagues as part of the #BuildingEquality in Construction group. 

We have moved up Stonewall’s Workplace Equality Index by 159 places – a clear measure on the work we have already done.  This benchmarks us for our recruitment, employee engagement, training, procurement and inclusive leadership approaches. 

Arcadis is a sponsor of London Pride 2017 where we will march with hundreds of our industry colleagues to support LGBT+ inclusion. We are proud to be taking this issue forward and encouraging everyone to be comfortable with who they are; straight, gay, other or undecided!"
