Fairness, Inclusion and Respect (FIR) Ambassadors promote a culture of Fairness, Inclusion and Respect within the organisation in which they work. They are expected to embody the principles of FIR: work collaboratively, whilst stepping in to take action, challenge behaviours and positively impact workplace culture.
The project team have signed up to the Fairness, Inclusion and Respect commitments and they embed the FIR culture through their inductions, toolbox talks, videos and information all around the site
- Respect – Working in partnership with others to encourage a culture where everyone receives respect, can work effectively, and voice their views.
- Equality – The right to be different, to be free from discrimination and to have choice and dignity; to be valued as an individual with a right to their own beliefs and values
- Inclusion – ensuring all individuals have the opportunity to maximise their potential and enhance their development and contribution
- Diversity – the measurable inclusion of different types of people
Why have a respect campaign?
- It’s about ensuring the well-being of everyone on site. An inclusive atmosphere will support everyone to work to the best of their abilities; an inclusive atmosphere also promotes health and safety as people are less likely to make mistakes and will be more comfortable in raising issues.
- It will help improve the quality of our work by improving team productivity – by encouraging different perspectives, and through increasing the morale and motivation of everyone.
- It will make everyone more comfortable to speak-up in suggesting new ideas or challenging to the way we do things.
