Committed to upholding the highest standards of conduct.
Wates Group and its Board of Directors are committed to upholding the highest standards of conduct and ethics among our businesses, our employees and our supply chain and we take our corporate governance responsibilities very seriously. Governance helps us to conduct our business responsibly, with openness and integrity, and in accordance with all of the laws and regulations to which our business activities are subject.
“2015 was a story of disciplined growth at Wates. Our sector has weathered some challenging conditions over the past few years, but despite this, our business performed extremely well. Growth of 21% in turnover has been accompanied by improved profitability across all areas of the business.
“Our reach and capacity grew with the acquisition of SES (Engineering Services) Limited, Shepherd Facilities Management and the assets of a number of construction projects from Shepherd Construction Limited.
“Our people continue to be our greatest asset. In recognition of this in 2015 we joined the 5% Club, committing that 5% of our UK headcount will be apprentices, sponsored students and trainees.”
We ended the year with a healthy order book of £4bn
Wates family shareholders, our board of directors, and the executive committee, have signed up to a long-term strategy that aims to achieve a Zero Harm culture throughout Wates by 2020.
