‘Bring your whole self’ is one of our four company values. We are free to be ourselves at work and help others to feel the same. We bring all our passion and energy to what we do and are open and inclusive.
At British Land we celebrate inclusivity as part of our culture. It means that the people who work for British Land can bring all their passion and energy to what we do, that we attract and keep great talent, and that our places appeal to a broad range of customers.
We are committed to improving the diversity and inclusivity of our team, so that we reflect and understand the people who work, shop, live and spend time at our places. It takes diversity of thinking, cultures, backgrounds and perspectives to create Places People Prefer.
Our leaders speak publicly and often about the importance of inclusivity, as part of our efforts to drive wider change. We champion equal rights for everyone and support a range of initiatives to nurture diversity across our sector and in the communities we serve.
Our strategy is aligned to the United Nation’s sustainable development goals – a framework to tackle social and environmental challenges.
British Land is an organisation where people feel free to bring their whole selves to work. It defines our culture and who we are.
Our 2030 DE&I Strategy
People and culture
Leaders at British Land have a responsibility to make a positive difference to our culture – one that is progressive and inclusive.
We want to cultivate an environment where we can debate and discuss inequality and prejudice openly in order to progress our culture and make improvements in our workplace.
Recruitment and career progression
Our ambition is to attract candidates from more diverse backgrounds and to ensure equality of opportunity exists throughout the recruitment process.
While working with us, we want every colleague to realise their potential, providing better career development, mentoring and sponsorship opportunities.
We are committed to having a diverse leadership team at British Land, as we know this helps to create a more inclusive business, where people feel comfortable, included and able to achieve their full potential.
Our leaders will take a visible role in driving the delivery of the actions in the strategy and focus on bringing about change in our business.
Our industry and supplier networks
We will be a force for positive change in our industry – working collaboratively both with new and established networks to promote diversity, equality and inclusion initiatives.
We will engage with our suppliers to ensure diversity, equality and inclusion is a core pillar of our relationships.
Our places and communities
We have a responsibility to make a positive impact on the communities in which we operate.
Supporting diversity, equality and inclusion is a fundamental part of this responsibility.
We have ten well-established networks and forums which have all been established and are led by employees from across the business. They represent our people and are a voice for change.
The networks thrived during the pandemic, providing a vital connection and informal support to our people. In addition, our Inclusive Culture Steering Committee oversees and coordinates all the work we do to build an open and inclusive culture.
