Author: Tiffany Zhou  /  27th Jun, 2022  /  News, Responsible Business

In celebration of Pride Month 2022, our project teams throughout Europe recently hosted Colours Day events, in conjunction with our #BuildingWithPride initiatives.

Hundreds of our people across 10+ countries took part in these celebrations on our projects and at our various offices.

Pride flags and decorations were unveiled at our Head Office in Dublin, Ireland, while rainbow-coloured lanyards, badges, flags and more were distributed to all our project sites to mark the occasion.

All staff were encouraged to wear colourful clothing in a show of solidarity with our LGTBQI+ people and their allies.

At Mercury, we actively advocate for Equality, Diversity and Inclusion across our industry, and Pride month empowers us to demonstrate how far we have come as an employer of choice.

Having achieved the Investors in Diversity’s Bronze status for our Diversity and Inclusion efforts in 2020, we were awarded Silver status for our efforts in 2021. While reviewing the accompanying report, we are setting our priorities for the coming years where we strive to continuously improve on outcomes achieved in our Diversity & Inclusion approach.

DIVERSITY & INCLUSION

At Mercury, our drive towards diversity & inclusion is one of the key driving factors behind our winning culture.

We have put in place a Diversity & Inclusion Policy that is driven by our Executive Management Team. Diversity & Inclusion is woven into the fabric of the vision and values of Mercury, not only through our culture, but through the entire life cycle of the employee experience.
