This is the fourth year that Mears has taken part in the Social Mobility Employer Index, which is now the leading accreditation to recognise good work for social mobility.
The accreditation is achieved through a combination of benchmarking the company’s approach to social mobility with data-led evidence, alongside the results of an anonymous staff survey.
Gary Jackson, Group Director, Communication and Customer Success said:
Our business is literally rooted in the communities we work. We take our responsibility to social mobility very seriously and hope that wherever we work we contribute to that society as an employer, as a local partner and as a driver of opportunity. I’m sure that colleagues who have learned a trade and have a whole new world of opportunities open to them would agree.
