Instarmac Formally Recognised as a Great Place to Work for Women

Instarmac Formally Named ‘Great Place to Work’ 2019 UK Best Workplaces for Women

Tamworth-based Instarmac Group plc has been officially named as a ‘Great Place to Work’ 2019 UK Best Workplaces for Women in the medium-sized organisation category.

In order to qualify for this prestigious award, Instarmac Group plc had to meet a number of strict criteria, including having already been ranked as a Great Place to Work, employing a minimum of 25% women in their work force, having a minimum of 25% of women employed in higher managerial positions, and to have demonstrated a confidence level of 80% from data gathered by direct feedback from the company’s female workforce.

Organisations selected for the Best Workplaces for Women go above and beyond for women in their workforce, making sure they are treated fairly when it comes to pay, recognition, training and promotion opportunities, and that work-life balance is promoted and supported. Some of the specifics Instarmac Group plc was commended for included: paying employees equally regardless of their sex, childcare vouchers, flexible and part-time working hours, as well as offering a bonus to those who return to work following maternity leave.

Karen Williams, Head of Human Resources at Instarmac Group plc said: “We are very proud to have received this recognition. We work hard here to ensure our recruitment and hiring is inclusive, as well as ensuring fairness around pay, recognition, training and development opportunities and work/life balance. This award helps us to strive to do better, as well as recognising the ways we have contributed to provide a supportive environment for women to progress within their careers and balance their work and family commitments.”

Managing Director of Instarmac Group plc John Holcroft said: “Historically, construction has been a predominantly male-dominated industry, however, over the past 28 years our workforce has included many female employees, at all career levels, both office-based and out in the field. There is more to be done within the industry to increase the recruitment and retention of a female workforce, but here at Instarmac we make every effort to continue to be a great place to work for all and are very honoured to have been officially recognised as such.”
