Murphy launches LGBT support network

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.
