Neath hire company praised for commitment to diversity

Neath Assembly Member Jeremy Miles has praised independent hire firm HOS Hire for its commitment to career development for women employees.

 

The AM visited HOS Hire’s premises in Neath on Friday afternoon (25 November)  to discuss how the company has worked with gender equality charity Chwarae Teg to improve its internal working culture and approach to diversity.

 

The Chwarae Teg employers’ programme, “Agile Nation 2” was developed in response to evidence that women in Wales are underrepresented in management roles compared to men. The programme helps businesses implement equality strategies and modern working practices. It is funded by the Welsh Government and European Social Fund.

 

The charity hopes to balance out the gender gap by encouraging more businesses to develop inclusive recruitment programmes and helping women progress within their roles.

 

Mr Miles said: “It is incredibly encouraging to see a key employer within the construction sector here in Neath so clearly committed to an inclusive workplace.

 

“This isn’t just about abstract ideas by the way – it can be a real boost to the business. By working closely with Chwarae Teg to develop such a positive staff culture, HOS Hire will set an important example to other employers. I really want to commend Maxine and the team for what they have done – and congratulate them on getting the Chwarae Teg Exemplar Employer award”.

 

Maxine Barrett, director at HOS Hire Ltd said: “It is pleasing to see the work we have put in to making sure our policies and procedures are more than just forms in a manual being recognised so publicly.

 

“We want our values to be of real benefit to the people who work here and to the company.”
