Celebrating Women in Construction
March 8th 2021
At CCF, we’re committed to being an inclusive employer, offering equal opportunities to all our staff. This is why we choose to challenge preconceptions often associated with the construction industry and are proud to support International Women's Day (8th March) and Women in Construction Week (8th – 14th March 2021).
The diversity within the CCF business is a strength and all our people, regardless of age, gender or background, help to make us a leader in the market when it comes to insulation and interior building product solutions.
We pride ourselves on creating a thriving working culture, aimed at supporting every single one of our employees to grow and succeed. This includes supporting all the women across our teams, who fulfil a number of different roles, and work hard to provide the Completely Customer Focused service we are known for.
One of our valued employees, Michelle Kinsalla, Key Account Director, who is also an ambassador for Women in Construction, said: “I enrolled to become an ambassador for Women in Construction as it’s vital that females have a voice in the industry and are involved in decision making. In this role, I have the opportunity to meet women in all areas of construction and discuss the different experiences they have had. CCF has been very supportive of me while I have taken on this role as part of London Build, promoting women, diversity and inclusion in the workplace.”
Not only has Michelle been supported in her role as an ambassador for Women in Construction, but in honour of the week we have also spoken to women across our business to showcase what it means to be a woman in the construction industry. These women answered questions around why they joined the sector and what they feel would encourage others to do the same. To watch these videos, of words of wisdom and industry advice, click HERE.
With a strong focus on nurturing our workforce to be the very best, we will continue to work together to make CCF a great place to work and the number one choice for our customers to do business with us.
