Diversity, inclusion and belonging
Plumm mental health support
The importance of mental health in the workplace cannot be overstated. We’re proud to partner with Plumm Health, a global online platform that offers professional support to all our employees across the world. This service is completely confidential and can be used for any topic, from mediation to topical webinars. The platform has an online chat function and the service also extends to dedicated therapists for when you need additional support.
THrive: health and wellbeing
Your health and wellbeing are extremely important to us, and we support our colleagues to lead a healthy and fulfilling life – whether that’s physically, mentally or financially. We offer a range of health and wellbeing incentives tailored to your location, including free gym memberships or an upgrade allowance to help you lead an active lifestyle without the financial stress.
We’re engaging future generations
We are a global partner to OffshoreWind4Kids, a programme designed to engage children across the world to learn about engineering, technology and renewables.
OffshoreWind4Kids has already been able to tap into our extensive global footprint, unlocking multiple opportunities to deliver events and initiatives in key offshore wind markets in the UK, Europe, APAC and the USA.
Our target is to roll out events to 2400 children by the end of 2024 and we’re already well on our way! We’ve delivered over 30 beach demonstration days and local school workshops where kids learn how to measure wind power generation by building wind turbines with a built-in display.
We’re supporting a sustainable planet
Alongside our colleagues at the Brunel Foundation, we’re accelerating reforestation by planting 19,000 trees across Thailand, Indonesia, the Philippines, Ecuador, Kenya, Madagascar, and Bhutan.
We are proud to offer each and every Taylor Hopkinson employee and contractor around the world a newly planted tree, creating the Brunel Foundation Forest. Thanks to our partners at EcoMatcher, once you receive your tree you can track its growth, including information about its species, its carbon sequestration, and the farmer who planted it.
Career Ready Scotland
We’ve partnered with Career Ready Scotland, a two-year programme that empowers young people in S5/S6 to kick-start their chosen career through a series of authentic, paid workplace experiences and a network of support.
Each year we are joined by two career-ready interns for four weeks, to work across our sales and support teams. By the time they join us, they’ll have already benefited from a full year of 1-2-1 mentorship from our TH volunteers, providing the tools and confidence they need to gain valuable hands-on experience in a real-world setting.
We are working on a range of initiatives with Street Soccer Scotland, a charity that uses football-inspired training and personal development as a medium to empower people who are affected by social exclusion.
We’ve supported the annual gala dinner which raised over £200,000 and our volunteers are attending events such as ‘Woman Inspired’ to raise more funds, along with other activities including CV writing support.
Diversity, Inclusion and Belonging Committee
Our regional Diversity, Inclusion and Belonging (DIB) Committees ensure that every voice is heard and valued. We discuss key DIB topics, deliver lunch and learn sessions, create content and manage a calendar of events to ensure that diversity, inclusion and belonging is in our DNA.
Employee Engagement Committee
We want to hear from our colleagues about what matters most to them. Our Employee Engagement Team ensures that voices are heard as well as coordinating charity and fundraising initiatives and supporting our company-wide volunteering events.
Our Social Team are cultural mavens passionate about having a good time – and sharing the best new entertainment, food and drink spots with the rest of the Taylor Hopkinson team. We organise social events, quarterly incentive days and cultural events, and use our connections in the hospitality scene to plan unforgettable events that you won’t get with any other employer.
