The image of the typical building contractor is something that has changed a great deal over the last decade.
However, there are still a whole spate of contractors who do nothing to help our public perception.
Ask most people what they think of when you tell them to imagine a builder and here are the things they’ll mention:
Grubby White Transit Van
Catcalling Women On The Street
- It is up to every single one of us to nip these bad habits in the bud. They are not the product of individuals, but rather a group dynamic based on lazy practices and low standards.
- Each and every outfit has a professional and personal interest in keeping their site standards high. By working efficiently and cleanly, we do our companies proud and are essentially promoting ourselves as a good work force.
- By smoking offsite, and out of our gear, we help to reduce the stigma attached to builders as lazy.
- Most importantly, by cracking down on sexism we can improve the moral attitudes of our younger workers and help create a work environment that is truly inclusive.
Lets all help to change the public perception of contractors and take pride in the work that we do!
