ITS Building People Celebrate 50 Years of Construction Recruitment with £50,000 Charity Drive
Celebrating 50 years in the construction recruitment industry, ITS Building People (ITS) now boasts 19 branches across England and South Wales. To commemorate this huge milestone, staff have pledged to raise £50,000 for the Sue Ryder charity.
Each ITS branch is taking part in various fundraising events, which include a charity skydive, The 3 Peaks Challenge, site labouring days, marathons, football matches and much more. The funds raised will provide hospice care for people with life-limiting conditions and their families.
“We are delighted to be celebrating our 50th anniversary by giving back to a fantastic cause,” said ITS Chairman Paul Knight. “Everyone at ITS is passionate about helping those who need it most, and I’m confident that our fundraising efforts will make a real difference.”
Construction recruitment experts
ITS Building People works with main contractors, developers and sub-contractors across all sectors in the industry, supplying trades and labour as well as professional construction staff on a temporary and permanent basis.
“We’re extremely proud of our legacy in the industry,” said Director John Bennett. “Our success over the past 50 years has been down to our commitment to delivering quality service and solutions for clients both large and small.”
Championing diversity, inclusion and mental wellbeing
Along with the charity drive, ITS continue to push its diversity and inclusion focus to create employment opportunities for all.
By tackling industry stereotypes and showcasing the benefits of working in construction, ITS are passionate about supporting sector-minority groups such as female workers and young people.
As well as this, ITS is involved in several key mental health initiatives, which have seen company ambassadors co-ordinate and deliver mental health training to ensure all workers are supported in an understanding and friendly environment.
“With 1 in 4 people experiencing mental health issues, and high suicide rates within the industry, we’re passionate about promoting a positive working environment that benefits everyone’s health,” said Director Callum McCartney. “As such, we work with construction-based mental health charities (Mates in Mind and Man Gang) as well as national initiatives to understand the impact that mental well-being can have on people in the industry. We are constantly looking for ways to support workers both on and off-site.”
ITS are proud of what they’ve achieved over the past 5 decades and are passionate about continuing the growth of the business in the future.
