This year’s theme for International Women’s Day is #BreakTheBias and as we proudly employ 55 highly skilled women professionals, who all play a key role in the day to day running of the business, we’re delighted to continue to show our support and help raise awareness against bias and discrimination.
As a company, we work hard to try and improve the gender balance across the business and over the past four years we’ve seen a 62% increase in the number of women employed at AJN.
Fourteen per cent of our current workforce are women, and while we push to increase this figure, we’re pleased to be above the industry average of 11% for the building and construction sector.
We also strive to ensure we have a representation of women across all areas of the business and currently have women employees working as HGV drivers, production operatives, combi / forklift loaders, transport coordinators, maintenance technicians and health and safety specialists.
AJN Steelstock’s Operations Director, Clare McGall, who has been a key change maker at AJN for celebrating a female presence, comments. “AJN is proud to employ a growing number of women – in various roles and seniority levels – and we believe that having diverse and equal teams, coupled with a forward-thinking culture, is fundamental to our continued success.”
