With over 100 offices around the globe NES have a diverse workforce and we recognise, respect and value the diverse nature of the wider society in which we operate.
However we do not feel it is enough to simply implement procedures in line with equality legislation and we have broadened our approach to ensure we are working towards being market leaders in tackling diversity issues and are supporting our clients to achieve their diversity goals.
Diversity in Recruitment – Gender
We are proud to partner with APSCO’s “Women in recruitment” action group and have committed to their Gender Equality Charter which is a public commitment by recruitment firms to promote gender equality throughout the business. As a signatory we work to ensure that we achieve best practice in our recruitment, career progression and retention practices as employers and aim to empower our female employees to achieve their full potential.
To make recruitment diversity a reality we commit to focusing on the following key areas:
• Internal Recruitment: recruiting fairly from as wide a base as possible.
• External Recruitment: encouraging applications from as diverse a base as possible.
• Encouraging end-user clients to recruit in a fair and diverse manner.
• Encouraging diversity at senior decision-making levels.
Supporting Women in Energy
NES Fircroft is a member of ALLY (Pink Petro) - an organisation dedicated to connecting and advancing women in Energy. Our Marketing Director sits on their Global Community Council and meets quarterly with peers from organisations such as Baker Hughes GE, Cheniere and Halliburton to connect on emerging issues and challenges.
Taking the market temperature
In partnership with Energy Jobline, we recently surveyed over 1,000 female engineers to find out how they're feeling working in the industry. We conducted this survey to find out more about women working in the Energy industry, their career path and the challenges and opportunities of working in the sector, in a bid to help highlight what the industry could be doing to attract and retain female employees.
