Construction firm Murphy & Sons has launched its own pride network to raise the profile of LGBT+ issues within the company and provide support for staff.
It is the company’s first employee support network and will be run by a team of volunteers.
CEO John Murphy said that the construction sector faces challenges and one of the biggest is attracting a diverse pool of talent from across society.
He added: “By developing networks that provide support to our colleagues and drive interest and discussion across a range of topics, it clearly shows real effort to attract the best.
“I’m pleased to see these develop and help Murphy become place where everyone feels welcomed, respected and included.”
The pride network will hold social events, opportunities to network and talks from key LGBT groups.
