Supporting women in construction.

Construction is one of the most male dominated industries in the country, with women making up just 12% of the workforce.

This drops down to around 2% when we are talking about on-site and trade roles. This has led industry wide issues of not being able to attract and retain talented women amid a nationwide labour and skills shortage. 

Here at Leader Earthworks, we proudly value and support our female workforce and strive to actively diversify our team.

The benefits of increasing the representation of women in construction include:

– decreased aggressive behaviour and bullying

– improved attention to detail at work

– improved communication

– promoting different perspectives and ideas

– less accidents and injuries.
