The Middle East construction industry is a rapidly growing sector with significant opportunities for businesses and investors.  However, like many industries around the world, it has struggled with issues related to equality, diversity, and inclusion (ED&I).

In recent years, there has been a growing recognition of the importance of ED&I in creating a more productive, innovative, and sustainable workforce.  As a result, many companies in the Middle East construction industry are taking steps to improve their ED&I policies and practices.

Construction Week recently approached Compass to explore some of the key challenges facing the industry, as well as some of the strategies that companies are using to promote ED&I and create a more inclusive workplace culture.

 

We have always employed our Team based on the merit and culture they bring... it is never about gender, nationality or creed, and with this organic mindset ingrained in our DNA, we are glad to be represented by a healthy ratio of equality and diversity

Conscious Unbiasing: Overcoming Bias in the Workplace

As a valued contributor to the article, Sarah Saxon, Regional Head of Human Capital, sheds light on the detrimental effects of unconscious bias in hiring and promotion decisions, as well as the more overt forms of bias that can ultimately create a toxic work environment. 

Sarah emphasizes the importance of a proactive approach to address bias in the workplace, by acknowledging and addressing biases and fostering a culture of inclusivity and diversity.

To create a truly inclusive workplace, it is essential to actively seek diverse perspectives and create opportunities for all employees to contribute and feel valued. Difficult conversations about bias and discrimination must also take place, and necessary action must be taken to address these issues.

Make sure to read more about we can all foster a fairer future here. 

Thank you to our friends at Construction Week for once again shining a light on these critical issues.
