In support for greater gender diversity, in the rail industry, VolkerRail has entered two teams into the Big Rail Diversity Challenge.
The challenge, which is a cross between it’s a Knockout and the Krypton Factor, will see each team made up of 50 percent female and 50 percent male members, compete head to head in numerous mental and physical challenges; lasting 15 minutes, throughout the day.
VolkerRail’s major projects director, Stuart Birch, said: “We understand that a diverse workforce creates a better working environment, with wider scope for innovation, development and knowledge sharing. This is a great idea and one we are very much in support of. Good luck to everyone taking part.”
