Life at Grafton Group

Building progress, together. When you join Grafton, you join a diverse community of incredible colleagues, managers and customers who support each other every day. We make sure to share in the good times and celebrate all the moments that make life special.

Diversity and Inclusion

Be yourself. We like it that way. At Grafton, we value every colleague for who they are and we want them to be themselves, their best selves, so they can thrive while working with us.

Diversity and Inclusion is important to us at Grafton Group. We know that teams made up of colleagues from different backgrounds is not only a fair representation of the communities we serve but also brings diversity of thought and helps us make better business decisions.  As part of our ongoing strategy to improve diversity within the Group, we launched a diversity action team with representatives from each of our businesses coming together to agree on key action points and to set goals to work towards us achieving a totally diverse workforce. We have also started a data capturing exercise to improve insights into our diversity and help us towards achieving these goals.

We are proud to work with Sophie Turner of #YesSheCan who has helped us facilitate workshops with senior management and our Diversity Action Group.

Monitoring the pay between men and women is an important step to ensuring that all colleagues are fairly rewarded for their work and their contribution to our business.  Gender Pay information has been published on the websites of UK businesses that are within the scope of the UK Gender Pay Gap reporting regulations.

We work closely with EmployAbility Ireland, a nationwide service which provides employment support services for people with a health condition, injury, illness or disability. Through EmployAbility, we have matched fantastic colleagues to roles within our business that suit their abilities.

"I have been working with Grafton Group for nearly 2 years now, if it was not for Grafton I would probably be still looking for paid employment. I would love to continue working for Chadwicks for as long as I possibly can as I love coming to work every day."
