As an early signatory of the Builders Code, Lafarge has announced its win for Workplace Culture Champion (Large-Sized Employer) by the British Columbia Builders Code. The company has been acknowledged for ongoing efforts in its operations to implement, maintain, and grow an environment that emphasises both culture and values.
The evidence suggests that Lafarge’s initiatives are successful – the company has seen an increase in women in its workforce year over year, and continues to conduct annual training for both new hires and existing employees that help to prevent, recognise, and remedy issues such as bullying, harassment, respect in the workplace, and bystander training.
“We’re asking a very traditional, heavily male-dominated industry to change and to adapt to a new way of doing business and to new faces in the team. The Builders Code is an important piece of that puzzle that allows us to continue that journey and gives us another tool to engage in conversations with our workforce,” says Lincoln Kyne, Vice President General Manager British Columbia and Western Canada Aggregates, Lafarge.
