Our employees love working for an organisation that builds quality and affordable homes for people, realising a new possible for so many. With a 50 year heritage building homes for families, we’re proud to be a 5-star builder, with a focus on customer care and quality running through the DNA of the organisation.
Our open culture encourages frank and honest discussion. We hire people who are excited to use their experience and keen to share their opinions and have their voice heard. People consistently tell us that they feel able to be their authentic selves at work. We’re proud of that, but not complacent, and we continue to foster a diverse and inclusive working environment across our business.
We embrace flexible working and have a culture based on trust. As a member of our team, you’ll want to do the right thing, and make the right decisions to help you do your best work every day. In return, you can expect an exciting and varied working life, with opportunities, possibilities, rewards and benefits.
Our mission, vision and values
In 2021 we launched our new Mission, Vision and Values, which build on our many strengths and will guide us as we strive, to be Britain’s leading homebuilder. We’ll always be clear with you on the direction of Persimmon, so we can unite our people around a shared purpose.
Diversity & Inclusion
We are focused on attracting a more diverse workforce across every aspect of our operations. In 2021 we set a number of stretching targets to improve our gender diversity.
With 40% of our total employees, 45% of our managers and 35% of our Executive Committee and their direct reports will be female by the end of 2025.
We recently invited an external consultancy to conduct a review to ensure our D&I policy is robust and impactful.
Our D&I Council comprises a wide range of our senior leaders and is responsible for holding us accountable and monitoring our progress as we implement our D&I Policy.
The D&I Council’s work is informed directly by the Diversity & Inclusion Employee Panel, a varied group from across our workforce.
To demonstrate our commitment and drive progress in the industry, we are active members of the Home Builders Federation’s Diversity and Inclusion Group (chair, 2022) and the Apprenticeship Diversity Champions Network.
