Our work brings us into contact with some of the most vulnerable people in society, living in some of the most socially deprived communities. As we grow, so do the opportunities and our sense of responsibility to make a positive difference.

We are proud to be on the list of the Sunday Times 25 Best Big Companies to Work For, and on the Social Mobility Index of the top 75 employers in the UK for our commitment to social mobility. We have a national Workforce Group that is responsible for setting the approach to staff engagement and each local branch has a People plan, which sets out what it will do in each year. We have an Employee Director who sits on the Mears Group Board, which also helps ensure that the views of the workforce are listened to and actioned.
