Terex pledges commitment to women in the workplace
Global equipment solutions provider, Terex Construction, has announced its commitment to inspiring the next generation of female engineers. Linking in with the government’s #NotJustForBoys campaign, the Terex manufacturing facility in Coventry, which produces Terex® compact construction equipment and Genie® scissor lifts, is implementing a number of new initiatives to encourage women to consider a career in manufacturing.
From internal development programmes for current team members to dedicated open days aiming to inspire the engineers of tomorrow, Terex aims to meaningfully increase its female staff figure over the next 12 months.
Neal Nowick, General Manager at Terex Coventry, commented: “We are committed to promoting wider diversity across the industry and supporting women in the workplace. Our mission is to encourage a greater gender balance within our own team, as well as the wider industry. We fully support the government’s #NotJustForBoys campaign and encourage more companies to get on board.”
In 2014, Terex hosted its first open day dedicated to women considering careers in manufacturing. Ten individuals attended, learning about Terex and meeting other female team members from its Coventry facility. Following the event, six candidates were offered interviews and now work in full-time roles.
Terex team member Helen Doughty explains: “After attending the recruitment open day last year, I was offered a role at Terex and haven’t looked back. Even though some may consider this as a male-dominated industry, I would encourage anyone who is thinking about perhaps changing their career path to look towards a job in manufacturing.”
The #NotJustForBoys campaign energises women to make recruitment choices that are right for them. Follow conversations on Twitter and show your support using the #NotJustForBoys hashtag, or alternatively visit www.terex.com/construction for more information about careers at Terex.
